Pre-K Application

Applications Still Being Accepted
The Wilkes County Schools Pre-K Program is still accepting applications for the 2018-19 school year to be placed on our waiting list. Sometimes we have families who move or withdraw their child for various reasons. We pull from our waiting list to fill these positions. Complete the online application if you are interested. Someone from our office will contact you once we receive the application.
Please call the Pre-K Office at 336-667-1121 if you have questions. 
The Wilkes County Schools Pre-K Program will be accepting applications for the 2018-19 school year in the spring. The application process begins with screening events held at each of the 13 elementary schools. On the Pre-K Screening day, children will go through screening stations while parents complete the online application process.

All students applying for Pre-K for the 2018-19 school year must be at least 4 years old on or before August 31st. The child must not have turned 5 years old prior to August 31, 2018. 

Families are requested to attend the Pre-K screening event at the elementary school in their attendance district.  If you are not sure what school district you live in, you may call the Transportation Department at 336-667-1126 to find out.  Parents/guardians must call the school to schedule a screening appointment. See the table below to find school phone numbers and dates of screenings.  A list of items required for your child's screening appointment is also provided. Please call (336) 667-1121 if you have further questions. 
Thank you for your interest in the Pre-K Program! If you have questions about the current school year please contact the Pre-K Office at 336-667-1121.
School personnel will guide you through the completion of your application during your screening appointment. Call your local school for an appointment.
NOTE:  If you should fill out the application ahead of your screening appointment, and it is done incorrectly, it will have to be completed again. Due to its length and complexity, we ask that you not complete the application prior to your screening appointment.
