  • PLEASE NOTE: Driver's Licences are not accepted for this purpose


2. A Copy of the Student's State Issued Birth Certificate

*No registration is considered complete until we have all of these documents.

* Please also be sure you set an appointment for your student to have his/her physical and immunizations before the first day of school.

In addition to the above, PreK will also need the following information:

  • Proof of Family Income Level is one of the requirements for VPI Prek that is set by the

state of Virginia. We are required to collect documentation of family income level.

  • Recent pay stubs, W2s or most recent tax return

NOTE: Children will not be allowed to begin school without proof of current physical

and immunizations.

*No application/registration is considered complete until all of the documentation, screenings and questionaires are completed and submitted to the school. Any child/family with an incomplete application cannot be considered for eligibility into our PreK Program.

*Completing the application does not guarantee a place in the preschool program. After receiving the applications, further screenings will be scheduled.

We can't wait for your family to join MES!
