ICS Head Start classes will begin on Monday, August 16.
Your child cannot attend classes until required paperwork is complete and necessary documents submitted. Do not try to send a child without completed registration paperwork on buses. If you forgot to apply this spring for your pre-school age child, on-site application completion is available for children with birthdays typically from 9-2-05 through 9-1-06 having one year prior to kindergarten beginning the second day of registration, but parents with selected children will be seen first.
Children with diagnosed disabilities are encouraged to apply, and may even apply with three years prior to kindergarten on their third birthday. Children enrolled in the ICS Early Head Start program may also apply for Head Start when the child reaches three years old. Appointments may be made for children with birthdays 9-2-06 through 9-1-07 who have two years prior to kindergarten for the following work week.
At this time Tunica, Tallahatchie, Quitman and parts of Panola counties do not have many children on their waiting lists. Some Blended Partner programs with licensed day care businesses still have openings in Lowndes County.
If your child is participating in a Blended Partnership program with ICS, the local daycare or public Pre-K will announce registration dates and times. Above paperwork will be needed.
ICS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, homelessness or disability. ICS is an equal opportunity employer.
