From Dr. Stacy Henson, Supervisor of Early Learning:
Pre-kindergarten and kindergarten families,
We know many of you are anxious to enroll your little ones. For pre-k, feel free to fax or mail in the application. Both address and fax number are on the application. If you are unable to do either, please don’t worry. We will work closely with you to ensure we have what you need by fall enrollment. Additionally, kindergarten families: If we need to change enrollment dates, add more, etc. we will. We don’t want this to be your number one concern right now, so simply follow this page for updates and we will ensure a smooth process for you once things get back to normal. Stay healthy and follow all the recommendations from the CDC. We can’t wait to meet your little ones, but we want to ensure their health and safety are foremost.

Registration may be done during regular business hours at the school, or during the four system-wide registration dates.

Please note changes in school schedules in relation to inclement weather situations. When a two-hour delay is called, there will be no a.m. or p.m. pre-kindergarten. If school is dismissed two hours early, the a.m. pre-kindergarten students will stay until dismissal and ride the bus home with the other students. There will be no p.m. pre-kindergarten in the case of an early dismissal.
