Polk County Schools to hold preschool enrollment events

Polk County Schools will hold a series of preschool enrollment events in March and April at local elementary schools.

The first of those events is set for March 27 at Saluda Elemenary and will run from 2-7 p.m.

Other planned events include:

Polk Central, April 11, 2-7 p.m.
Sunny View, April 23, 2-7 p.m.
Tryon Elementary, April 30, 2-7 p.m.

Parents and guardians can attend one of these sessions at any school in the district. They do not have to attend the event at the school their child will attend.

The sessions will allow guests to learn about the pre-kindergarten program as well as complete the enrollment process. Any child who turns four before August 31, 2019, is eligible for the pre-K program as well as a limited number of children who turn three before that date.

Required documents for pre-K application included a birth certificate, proof of residents and proof of income.

Anyone with questions can call the pre-K office at 828.894.3051.
