In-District qualifying students will have priority for placement first. There are limited slots and students will be placed on a waiting list when these are filled. Enrollment packets are updated every year and available the first week in May for the next school year. These packets are scored throughout the summer, and qualifying students are placed into classrooms by the end of July/first week in August. Parents are then contacted by preschool staff.
