Children that are currently enrolled and will not be old enough to attend Kindergarten may register for the 2012-2013 preschool year January 17 through February 3. Packets are available at the child's current classroom for these children only - no siblings at this time.

During Kindergarten registration, January 30 through February 3, Elementary School office staff will distribute the Early Childhood Programs brochure to interested families. Families will be told that open registration begins in February, updated forms will be available on-line, in the Community Education office and in Elementary School offices beginning February 7.

Beginning February 7 and continuing all year, families may print all of the forms from the website - or call 472-7250 to have a packet mailed - or pick up a packet in their closest Elementary School office, complete the forms and attach the $40.00 licensing and assessment fee. Please attach copy of birth certificate, shot record, proof of residence and proof of income if needed. Send completed packet to Community Education by mail - or deliver the packet in person. Questions from families may be referred to 472-7250.
