Students

Lee County's Georgia Pre-K Program operates for 180 days per year. The core instructional program is 6.5 hours per day. Families enrolling children in the program must agree to send the child the full 6.5 hours of instructional time, five days per week for the entire 180 days.

School Hours

School Hours are from 8:25—2:55. Children should not arrive before 7:30 and must be picked up by 3:15. Bus transportation and Extended Day program are available.

Changes in information such as address, phone number (work/cell/home), or people designated to pick up your child should be completed in writing, signed, and dated.

Teacher/Parent Communication

  • Parents are encouraged to maintain open communication with Lee County's Georgia Pre-K staff.
  • A minimum of two parent/teacher conferences will be offered during the school year to review your child’s progress.
  • To ensure accuracy, all written communications need to have the child’s name referenced, be dated, and signed by the parent or guardian.
  • You will receive newsletters from your child’s teacher at least once a month.
  • If you need to contact the teacher during the school day, you will be asked to leave a message. The teacher will return your call after class hours.

Class Parties

The Lee County's Georgia Pre-K teacher or room mother will contact parents about providing refreshments. If you are helping, please do not bring other children to the party. Please contact your child’s teacher before sending refreshments to school for birthday celebrations or other special occasions. This will eliminate having too many “cupcakes” sent the same day. We ask that flowers, balloons and gifts not be delivered to students at school. According to bus rules, students are not allowed to carry flowers or balloons on the bus.

Party Invitations

We discourage the distribution of party invitations at school. If you must send them, do not send party invitations unless the entire class is invited or all of the boys or all of the girls are invited. Teachers cannot provide student phone numbers or mailing addresses.

Field Trips

Lee County's Georgia Pre-K teachers plan field trips and invite guests to presenters to broaden the children’s educational experiences. Field trips are free of charge. Written permission is required for students to go on field trips. If you are one of the parents accompanying the class, keep in mind that this is a special time for you and your Pre-K child. We ask that you please do not bring any other children with you. Please understand that for some field trips, a limited number of parents are needed. Teachers will inform parents about plans.
