assistants in each classroom. All Los Alamos County residents with children who will be 4 years old by
September 1, 2020 are encouraged to apply. Students do not have to reside within the Mountain or Piñon
school zones to attend.

Applications are now being accepted for both of these programs. Families may apply for a PreK spot
