    Q: Is there a school supply list for Prekindergarten?
    A: Yes, there are designated supplies for Prekindergarten. Please contact your child’s teacher or go to the school website for updated supply lists.
    Q: Is transportation available?
    A: Pre-kindergarten students are eligible for bus transportation once transportation application has been approved. Please note: pick up and drop off locations are limited and subject to campus zoning restrictions. Once the application is approved, Pre-K students are required to ride the bus with an older sibling for additional safety precautions.
    Q:Does attendance really count in Pre-K?
    A: Yes, it does. To receive the full benefit of the Prekindergarten program, your child needs to be here every day for their class. Once you have enrolled your child in school they are expected to attend and fall under Compulsory Attendance Law. Refer to the link below to access the Student Handbook and Code of Conduct regarding state and district attendance laws and policies.

    Registration

    A: Once the initial application has been submitted, the campus secretary will contact you with specific instructions on completing your child’s registration and submitting all necessary documents.

    Q: Why do we have to go to the campus, can’t I just register online?
    A: New student registration for the next school year is available online at Priority Charter School Admissions. After online registration is complete, specific documentation must be provided to the campus in order to qualify for Pre-Kindergarten. If your child is qualifying under the language program, a campus representative will contact you for language testing.

    Q: Can we fill out online registration now?
