Dear SOMSD Pre-K Parents/Guardians:
We hope that you and your family are well. Please allow us to provide an update of the District’s Preschool Education program and registration for the 2020-2021 school year.
The Department of Preschool Education and Special Services is pleased to announce that our preschool program has been fully funded for the 2020-2021 school year! Therefore, at this time, additional acceptance letters have gone out to families based on our preschool lottery system and current seat capacity. Please be advised that the District may have an opportunity to expand our program throughout the year, which is contingent upon establishing additional partnerships with private childcare providers. The South Orange & Maplewood School District is committed to providing a high-quality preschool education program to all eligible students and remains dedicated in our efforts to expand. All families who did not receive an acceptance letter at this time will remain on the preschool waitlist and be notified if and when a seat becomes available.
We thank you for your patience during this unprecedented time. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Be safe and well.
Melody Alegria, Ed.D & Leroy Johnson III
