Exciting things are happening this spring as we prepare for our 2023-2024 school year. Between developmental screenings, preschool enrollment, and Kindergarten roundup there is a lot of information for you to know!
USD 407 is hosting developmental screenings for all children ages 3 years to 5 years, 11 months. The screenings provide parents with information about hearing, vision, emotional, academic concepts, self help, and physical milestones. The screenings are a requirement for our 4 year old preschool application. These are not kindergarten screenings. Information about kindergarten screenings will be sent out soon. Please use this link to sign up for a time. LINK:https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0D44A8AD2AABF4CF8-developmental1
