Panhandle Elementary School is pleased to announce upcoming transitions to Pre-Kindergarten for the 2020-2021 school year. Last year, TEA mandated House Bill 3 which was passed by the 86th Texas Legislature. This included mandatory full day Pre-K classes for 4 year olds who qualify. While Panhandle ISD is proud to offer this as an option, please understand that students who are eligible under the stipulations from the State of Texas will qualify for the full day program.
The qualifying factors are:
If you do not qualify under one of the stipulations above, we are proud to continue to offer our famous and fabulous half day Pre-K program that we have offered for the last 15 years. Due to lack of staff and space, I cannot make special accommodations at this time.
We will work diligently at August registration (date still pending) to determine half-day/full-day qualifications quickly, and notify you at that time prior to school starting.
Should you have questions, please feel free to contact me. We look forward to expanding our Pre-Kindergarten program and serving your students and families.
