Special to the Citizen It’s that time of year – Morgan County Primary School Pre-Kindergarten Lottery Registration! Morgan County Primary School will designate four Pre K classes for the 2016-2017 school year. A lottery drawing will be held at MCPS on Monday, February 15 to draw the names of students for the available slots. To be eligible for the drawing the child must be 4 years of age by September 1, 2016, and the parent(s)/guardian must be residents of Morgan County. The MCPS Pre K Program is part of the Georgia Lottery Program, called “Bright from the Start” and is fortunate to be in a partnership with The Head Start Agency. In order to receive the funding needed to offer a free Pre K Program, parents/guardians are required to provide proof of income, along with other information such as Morgan County residency, their child’s birth certificate, etc., in order to secure their child’s placement if chosen from the lottery drawing. Please visit the Morgan County Charter School System website at morgan.k12.ga.us to register your child and submit an application online for the Pre K Lottery or you may register at the Board of Education Office at 1065 East Avenue, Madison, Ga. From 8:00-4:30 Monday-Friday. All lottery applications must be submitted by 12:00 noon on February 15, 2016. Parents/guardians are invited, but not required to be present at the lottery drawing on February 15. The lottery drawing notifications will be sent via postal mail after the drawing.
