The Pre-K program will be housed at South Lamar, Sulligent and Vernon Elementary Schools for the 2017-2018 school year. Transportation to and from the Pre-K sites will be the responsibility of the parent. The Pre-K program is a full day program and will run from 8:00 am until 2:30 pm, daily. The cost of the program is $40.00 a month per child. A random selection drawing will be used to select the children to participate in the Pre-K program.
