             Q         What do I need to do to get my child into the Pre Kindergarten program?

   A         Your child must be screened and a questionnaire completed at the home school, which is the school serving the      child’s attendance area.  This will be used to determine the students selected for the program.  Areas are assigned based on the parent’s current physical address with proof of residency (see below).
