Portsmouth City Schools Accepting Preschool Applications

April 3, 2013

Portsmouth City Schools will be accepting preschool applications for the 2013-2014 school year from April 3 through April 17. Registration for interested applicants for an upcoming play date also will be made.

Interested families should call 354-1849 for an application packet and to sign up for the play date which will be held in April.

Preschool classes are housed at East Portsmouth Elementary School in Sciotoville and at Portsmouth Elementary School. Classes are in session Monday through Thursday and operate on the building schedule. Transportation may be available to preschool students based on the District’s busing area. Busing from Portsmouth Elementary to East Portsmouth Elementary is provided to those students who are attending a preschool room in that building.

Students must be 3 years old by September 30 to apply for the 2013-2014 school year. Eligibility for enrollment will be prioritized based on program guidelines.

Families are asked to bring with them to the play date the completed application, child’s birth certificate, shot record, Social Security card, proof of income, proof of residency (i.e. March utility bill), and custody papers (if applicable).

All questions can be addressed by calling 354-1849.
