Pre-Kindergarten Registration/Full Day Kindergarten Registration
Registration for pre-kindergarten and kindergarten children who expect to enter school in September, 2013 and who are residents of Emerson will be held on Thursday, January 31st from 9:00 A.M. to 11:00 A.M. and 5:30 P.M to 7:30 P.M. at Memorial School.
To be eligible for pre-kindergarten a child must be four-years-old on or before October 1; for kindergarten a child must be five-years-old on or before October 1.
Pre-kindergarten enrollment will be limited to two sections. Pre-Kindergarten has a morning and afternoon session. The morning session hours are from 8:45-11:20 and the afternoon hours are from 12:30-3:05.
- If more than 44 students register for pre-kindergarten on January 31st, all students registered on that date will be entered into a lottery. A priority waiting list will be developed comprised of additional names in order of the draw.
- If fewer than 44 students register on January 31st, a lottery will not be necessary and students registering after the registration date will be enrolled on a first come, first served basis.
If a lottery is required, it will be held during the next scheduled public Board of Education meeting to be held on February 11, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. in the Emerson High School Media Center. While there will be a public drawing of names, no student or family information will be disclosed at the drawing to protect the confidentially of students. You will be informed by letter, to be mailed on or about February 12, of your child’s status, including which session (a.m. or p.m.). Those children not selected for the first round will be placed on a wait list in the order of their draw. (Updated 2/8/2013)
