The registration period is scheduled for Feb. 4 through Feb. 15, providing a prime opportunity for parents to register their children for the slots available in the pre-K program in for the 2013-2014 school year. To be eligible for pre-K, a child must be 4 years old on or before Sept. 1.
Applications for the program will be available at each school in the system offering a pre-K class beginning on Monday, Feb. 4.
Completed forms should be turned in to the local school.
It is not necessary to be first in line on the first day of registration because pre-K slots are not filled on a first-come basis. This means that applications received on the first and last day of the application period will have an equal opportunity at the slots available.
Names will be randomly drawn from applications received to fill the number of spaces available at each school site.
All parents of applicants will be notified by mail concerning the status of their application by the end of February.
There will be 19 pre-K classes formed next year in the Floyd County school system.
There are 22 available pre-K slots in each class. Pre-K sites and the number of classes at each site are: Alto Park Elementary (two classes), Cave Spring Elementary (one class), Garden Lakes Elementary (two classes), Glenwood Primary (four classes), Johnson Elementary (two classes), McHenry Primary (two classes), Midway Primary (two classes), Model Elementary (two classes) and Pepperell Primary (two classes).
