Preschool Selection by Lottery will occur during the week of April 18. We will have 48 preschool spots available. If there are more applications than available spots, students are selected by lottery. Per Maine DOE rules, approval for our preschool program is based on priority being given to ensure that 60% of students served qualify for free or reduced price meals and 15% qualify for CDS services. We provide transportation to students from the Skillin, Brown and Kaler school districts.
Students who receive a slot will be notified by mail no later than May 2, 2022. Students who have submitted an application by the April 14 deadline and are placed on a wait list will also be notified by mail no later than May 2, 2022. We ask that you do not call the office for the lottery results prior to May 2.
If your application is selected, you will be given instructions on how to formally register your child for the upcoming school year. To secure your child’s spot in our Preschool program, you must complete the formal enrollment process prior to May 20, 2022. If this enrollment deadline is not met, your child’s name will be placed on the wait list.
