Pre-kindergarten registration for the 2012-2013 school year is set for July 11 and 12 at La Porte Elementary School, 725 S. Broadway. Hours are 8 to 11:45 a.m. and 12:45 to 5 p.m.
To be eligible for pre-kindergarten, children must be four years of age on or before Sept. 1, 2012. Program eligibility is based on several factors, such as being homeless; unable to speak and comprehend the English language; educationally disadvantaged (such as eligible for Head Start and the National School Lunch Program); the child of an active duty member of the armed forces of the United States or a member of the armed forces who was injured or killed while serving on active duty; or having been in the conservatorship (foster care) of the Department of Family and Protective Services following an adversary hearing. More information on these factors is available on the La Porte ISD website at www.lpisd.org or by calling the Office of Elementary Education at 281-604-7030.
Parents or guardians should bring with them the child's birth certificate, the child's Social Security card, immunization records, proof of residency (such as a current utility bill), the guardian's Texas driver's license or Texas I.D. card, and the guardian's military I.D., if applicable. On July 12 only, free immunizations will be offered from 9 to 11:45 a.m. and 12:45 to 2 p.m. Free vision screening will also be available.
