NOTE: Students attending preschool do so with a trial period during the first quarter. During this trial period, readiness in preschool will be assessed through observation. If the student is having difficulty adjusting to preschool, the parents will be informed that their assistance is needed. The parents will be required to assist with the student for part of or for the entire preschool day, as deemed necessary by the teacher and principal. If after the trial period the teacher and/or the principal find that preschool placement is inappropriate, the student will be disenrolled. Preschool children must be fully potty-trained without assistance.
