Pre-K Wait List for the 2021-2022 School Year - Now Available!
 
The Glynn County School System will open the waiting list for pre-kindergarten students for the 2021-2022 school year on Tuesday, December 1, 2020. Facility limitations and state restrictions limit the pre-kindergarten enrollment in Glynn County public schools to 506 students at this time.  These students will be served at FACES (Family and Children’s Educational Services), the Glynn County Schools’ pre-kindergarten center, and/or in selected elementary schools – Glyndale, Goodyear, Greer, Oglethorpe Point, Satilla Marsh, St. Simons and Sterling.  Pre-kindergarten is a full-day program that follows the regular school calendar.
 
Parents and/or guardians must complete the Pre-K Waitlist Form on-line using the Google Form link (also posted below).  Phone calls to place children on the waiting list will NOT be accepted.  Pre-kindergarten students must be four years old on or before September 1, 2021 to qualify.
 
Names will be placed on the waiting list. A random selection of students for the program will take place in March 2021.  At that time, parents and/or guardians will be notified by phone or mail to schedule an appointment to complete the registration process.
