FCS preschool


Our upcoming Spring screening dates for the 24-25 school year are April 12th, May 10th, and May 16th, 2024. Once the screening is complete, families are informed if their child is eligible to receive interventions in an area of concern or if the family is eligible based on household income, pending income verification. You can schedule an appointment here.

2023-2024 School Year:

First Day of school for Kindergarten - 12th grade will be: August 9, 2023

However, the first day of school for Preschool will be: August 16, 2023

After completing our screening process, the teachers will notify parents/guardians of information needed to finalize enrollment into the preschool program.

Preschool Screening

If you are the parent or guardian of a 3 or 4 year old child that you believe could be at-risk for educational failure, please schedule a screening here.


Please contact Stephanie Emberton via email ( or call 695-6700 for questions.

Weather Delays and Preschool
If for any reason Franklin County Schools have to operate on a delayed schedule, this will also impact our preschool program.
If school should be delayed for one hour in the morning, the a.m. preschool would also be delayed for one hour; the afternoon program would run on regular schedule.

If school should be delayed for more than one hour, there will be no a.m. preschool, and the afternoon preschool program would run on their regular schedule.
