    About UPK

    • The UPK program is limited to children who will be four years old on or by December 1st of the year when they start the program.  To qualify for UPK during the 2024-2025 school year, the child's birthday must fall between 12-2-19 and 12-1-20.
    • The program is a full day program (6.5 hours daily).  
    • The program will follow the school district calendar, with an anticipated 180 days of student attendance.   
    • There is limited availability for the program based on grant-funding.  During the 23-24 school year, there were 72 slots available for children.  If more children apply than there are available slots, the district will hold a random selection process (i.e. drawing names randomly in a lottery format).
