Mountain Home School District
All Day Kindergarten Registration NOW OPEN!
East, North, and West Elementary are all looking at the possibility of adding a Full Day Tuition Based Kindergarten program. The tuition based Kindergarten program is designed to have Kindergarten students attend the additional half-day of school, based on a fee of $250 a month, plus the cost for lunch (as well as breakfast, if you choose). Students would receive an enriched and extended kindergarten curriculum, focused on providing students with expanded Language Arts experiences through drama, speaking, writing, and reading. It will provide enrichment in Math, Social Studies, Science, and general knowledge. Just as in the traditional half-day sessions, your child will participate in Music, PE, Computers, and Library classes each week.
Stephensen Elementary (MHAFB) has its own Full day Tuition Based Kindergarten program and Lottery, so please contact them for more information at 832-4651.
This program will only be offered as long as classroom space has an enrollment of a minimum of 20 students and will be capped at 25 students. Students attending the Full Day Tuition Based Kindergarten will attend from 8:25 a.m.-3:00 p.m., and will follow the same school calendar as our 1st through 4th grade students. The students will be taught by a certified teacher and the class will benefit from a full-time paraprofessional, lowering the student to adult ratio.
The Full Day Tuition Based Kindergarten program is limited to 25 students and slots will be filled by a lottery drawing. Once a student is selected, parents can secure enrollment by signing a contract and paying the $100 deposit. The deposit will hold the child’s spot in the program. Once all slots are filled, students can be placed on a waiting list and will be notified when space becomes available.
The cost of the program is $250.00 a month for nine months. Parents must pay a $100.00 deposit upon acceptance to the program. The deposit will then be applied to the last month’s tuition (May) and is non-refundable. If your child withdraws before the last month’s tuition is due, your $100.00 deposit will not be refunded. The first payment is due September 1st and will be due the first of every month through May. May’s tuition will be $150 (plus the previously paid deposit of $100.00). Payments are considered late if not received by the 20th of each month. A late fee of $15.00 will be added to any tuition not paid by the 20th of the month.
If you are interested in signing your child up for the Full Day Tuition Based Kindergarten, please complete the Lottery Ticket form found on each of the elementary school websites and school district website, and turn the form in to your school’s office. Please contact your child’s school for more information or assistance.
