The Huntington School District is accepting applications for its 2017/18 universal pre-kindergarten program. The deadline to submit an application is Friday, May 26.

The program is open to Huntington School District residents born between December 2, 2012 and December 1, 2013. The half-day program will follow the district’s school calendar. Classes will meet for 2½ hours per day.

A total of 108 seats split between morning and afternoon sessions are available. Classes will be held at Jefferson Primary School, Southdown Primary School and Jack Abrams STEM Magnet School. Another 16 seats are available at Developmental Disabilities Institute. Transportation will be available to the in-district sites.

Students for the program will be selected via random lottery in accordance with state requirements. Only one application per child will be accepted. The lottery will be held on Friday, June 2 at 11:30 a.m. in the Jack Abrams STEM Magnet School auditorium. Notification to parents will be sent via US Mail following the lottery.

While applicants can indicate a preference for morning or afternoon sessions or for school location, there are a limited number of seats in each building and it might not be possible to honor all such requests.
