3 yr old Preschool registration is open Monday, February 4th, 2019 through Friday, February 8th, 2019 (6 pm). All students who are registered will be assigned a number (internally). Numbers will be randomly selected through a lottery process for the 30 available general education spots. Parents will be notified of the results by Friday, February 15th. This process will ensure equity for all families interested in the 3-year-old program as spots are very limited. There is no charge for the 3-year-old preschool.   For more info: Click here for 3 yr old Preschool informational brochure
