Roland-Story offers a preschool class that is housed in the elementary building. This class consists of children that are 3 and 4 years old. It is an integrated program along with children of the same age that have special needs. The program will be                offered to all children who will be 4 by September 15, 2013. The class size is limited to provide all children with a high quality preschool.
Due to the limited size of the classes we will take applications until March 1st. We will then have a lottery type drawing to determine enrollment.  If you are interested, please stop by the elementary office and fill out an application card. (this must be completed by parent)
There will be a box there to drop the applications card in. After the drawing March 1st,  you will be contacted by mail to let you know whether or not your child’s name was drawn and they have a spot in the preschool program.
