Pre-K Students

Even if you missed Cabell County’s official registration and enrollment day, it isn’t too late to sign up your child for Pre-K or Kindergarten for the coming school year. Simply stop by your local elementary school or community-based Pre-K center during regular hours to make sure your student is assigned a spot and ready to learn when the 2018-2019 school year begins.

By signing up now, you’re not only putting your own mind at ease; you’ll also be allowing the district and its partners to better predict student enrollment so appropriate staff can be placed and other essential functions, like transportation and universal free meals, can be efficiently planned.

To be eligible for Pre-K, children must be four years old by June 30, 2018. Pre-K programs are provided tuition-free.  Cabell County Schools works with collaborative partners to provide Pre-K programs.  Operated in various locations throughout the county, (all public elementary schools, Head Start, child care programs, and faith-based schools), the district’s Pre-K program offers a range of hands-on experiences based on the West Virginia Board of Education’s Early Learning Standards. 

To be eligible for Kindergarten, children must be five years old by August 31, 2018. Kindergarten is also provided tuition-free at all Cabell County public schools.  Teachers work to maintain inviting, enriching classrooms, with instruction based on West Virginia standards. 

In addition to working to meet instructional needs, all Cabell County public schools are strongly focused on the safety and wellness of students.  The district is pleased to provide free breakfast and lunch for all children enrolled in Cabell County’s public schools.  

To register in Pre-K or enroll in Kindergarten, parents/guardians will need to bring:

  • Updated immunization record (parents/guardians of currently enrolled Pre-K students need to provide their child’s most recent immunization record).

  • Social Security card.

  • Certified copy of the child’s birth certificate from the State Vital Statistics Office.

  • A Health Check Form, which can be obtained from your child’s health care provider.   Forms must have been completed within the last twelve months.

  • Copy of a completed dental exam.  Exam must have been within the last twelve months.

  • Proof of residency.

  • Proof of income (Pre-K only).

Please contact your local public school or community-based Pre-K provider for more information.  You may also call (304) 528-5077.
