2021-2022 PRE-K REGISTRATION
Sheridan Elementary School and East End Elementary will begin taking applications for preschool students for the 2021-2022 school year on March 5, 2021. Click on the registration links below to begin the first step of the registration process (available in English and Español). After you complete this first step of your student's registration online, the record will be processed and reviewed by the school secretary who will contact you with information on how to complete the second step of the Pre-K Registration process, which is to complete the Arkansas Better Chance application.
Your child must be four years old on or before August 1, 2021 to apply for preschool. Space is limited and will be filled on a first come, first qualified basis. These classes are funded through Arkansas Better Chance for School Success and have specific guidelines as to which students qualify for services. This program serves four-year-old children from families with gross income not exceeding 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. These guidelines are mandated by the state government. However, should we have any spots left to be filled after we have accepted all students who are eligible based on income, we will begin accepting students based on a sliding scale where families will be responsible for paying a portion of the tuition.
