Walk-in registration for Pre-k will be held on Wednesday, February 5th and Thursday, February 6th from 1:00 - 6:00 pm each day in the Elementary Lobby. Parents should bring all completed registration forms and required documents.

If more than 40 students are officially registered at the end of the day on Thursday February 6th, all candidates will enter a lottery and the first 40 drawn are those chosen to participate. If 40 or less register, all candidates can participate from the start. A waiting list is established if we exceed the maximum of 40 students after the registration date.

Mandatory Pre-K screening will be held in June 2020 and your child must attend to hold his/her slot. Your child will participate in hearing and vision screening and speech/language screening. A letter will be sent home to you in April with dates and times for screening. Attendance at screening is mandatory to maintain your child's Pre-K slot.

The staff at Sandy Creek Central School looks forward to working with you for the well-being of your child. Your help in alerting other families to Pre-K registration information is appreciated!
