Lottery

Pre-Kindergarten is available to Uxbridge residents only.  Families will be notified of the outcome mid-February with further instructions. With the four-year-old classes, preference is given to returning students. Those not chosen through the lottery will be placed on a waiting list. After the initial registration process is complete, should any Pre-Kindergarten slots become available we will continue to take names from the waiting list. Many changes take place between the months of February and September. You still have a chance to get in!


Classes

Pre-Kindergarten classes are held on either Tuesday and Thursday mornings (8:45-11:15 a.m.) or on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in the morning (8:45-11:15 a.m.) or in the afternoon (12:00 – 2:30 p.m.). One class meets on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings (8:45-11:15 a.m.)
 

First Day of School

In order to ease the adjustment into Pre-Kindergarten for your child we will hold an Open House. Dates and time will be posted later.


Tuition

Tuition for the 2017-2018 two day program is $1,600 annually; three day program is $2,400 annually and for the five day program is $4,000 annually. If payment is made in one lump sum you may deduct 5%. A payment plan is available in ten month installments, due on the 15th of each month beginning in August. Final payments will be due on May 15th. In case of tardy payments, a fee of $25 will be assessed. Failure to pay for the service (including late charges) by the end of the month (30 days) will result in termination of the service. In addition, the Town Collector’s Office will charge a $25 fee for returned checks. Personal checks or money orders should be made payable to Uxbridge Public Schools. (Sorry we are unable to accept cash.) Tuition is subject to change.

Holiday and snow days are considered part of the school schedule and are inclusive in the tuition costs.


Registration

Once your child has been selected in the lottery, initial registration must be completed by mid-April. Your child’s birth certificate, proof of most recent yearly physical. immunization records and proof of Uxbridge residence (a recent utility bill with your name and address on it – no P.O. box), and a forty dollar non-refundable registration fee are required at this time (check made payable to Uxbridge Public Schools). Renters can get a Landlord’s Affidavit form to complete as proof of residency from the office. The Physician’s Immunization Form must be received, on or before July 1st, as our school nurse works limited hours during the summer. Please call the office if your child’s physical appointment is scheduled later than July 1st. Please note that all children must be potty trained (no pull-ups). Changing diapers takes time away from the classroom.

Special requests for classrooms, times, etc. are considered but cannot be guaranteed due to the complexity of scheduling the classroom structure.

Screenings

The brief Pre-Kindergarten screenings are schedule to give us an opportunity to “put a face with a name” and give us a quick look at your child’s speech and language skills and social interaction style. This is not a standardized screening so there is no “pass” or “fail”. Therefore, there will be no follow-up letter stating results. It is our expectation that most of the children will do just fine. If something is noted that we feel warrants a closer look in the fall, we will notify you. Otherwise “no news is good news”.

Parent Conferences/Progress Reports

Parent conferences are scheduled twice during the school year. These day and evening conferences are scheduled during Education Week in November and in June. Be aware that at any time you may have a question about your child’s progress, his/her teacher will be more than happy to schedule time to discuss your concerns.
