The Huntington School District is accepting applications for its 2018/19 universal pre-kindergarten program. The deadline to submit an application is Monday, April 30.
The program is open to Huntington School District residents who will be four years old by December 1, 2018. The half-day program will follow the district’s school calendar. Classes will meet for 2½ hours per day.
A total of 124 seats split between morning and afternoon sessions are anticipated. Classes will be held at Flower Hill Primary School, Jefferson Primary School, Southdown Primary School, Washington Primary School and Developmental Disabilities Institute-Starting Early.
