Mandatory screening and registration for the Graves County Schools’ preschool takes place during February and March. Now’s the time to schedule an appointment. Any phone calls for registration/screening after April 17 will delay that process until August and the child won’t be eligible to attend until after Labor Day.
Please note that screenings and registration must be scheduled in the family’s home setting. In order to attend preschool, a child must be either 3 or 4 years of age on or before August 1, 2020.
Registration is required again for current preschoolers who will return to preschool in August 2020. However, no new screening is necessary.
Please call the Graves County Head Start office to schedule an appointment for registration and screening, which will take place on the same visit. Phone (270) 674-4905 or (270) 328-4905.
Applications also will be accepted for Early Head Start. This program is designed to serve women who currently are pregnant and children aged from birth to 3 years of age and who meet Federal Income Guidelines. Transportation is not provided for the Early Head Start Program.
