Preschool Palooza gets started

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The East Baton Rouge Parish School System kicks off its annual pre-kindergarten sign up this week.

The application process is from Jan. 28 to Feb. 1, but there are two events before then to highlight the period.

Parents can head to Cortana Mall from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday for information about pre-school programs.

There is also an event next Wednesday (Jan. 23) at Woodlawn Middle School from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m.

This year, the school system is doing away with the lottery system and is opting to screen students for admission.

Director Bobbie Robertson said students who have had little or no early education will get priority admission.

Call 225-355-6197 for more information.
