PRE-K Registration Begins Today!

Houston County Pre-K Registration Begins Today

March 12th, 2012 

Pre-K and kindergarten registration begins for Houston County parents this morning and runs through March 23.

Registration will be held from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. at each school.

Pre-K students must be four years old on or before September 1, 2012.  Kindergarten students need to be five years old by that date.

· Ear, Eye and Dental Screening – Georgia Form 3300 (required once accepted into Pre-K program);
· Certificate of Immunization – Georgia Form 3231 (required once accepted into Pre-K program);
· Proof of eligibility for any government assistance; and
· Parents are expected to participate in parent workshops and monthly parent activities.

Kindergarten registration requires:
