2017-18 New Student Enrollment

PreK and New K Student Enrollment Packets may be picked up at the ECC Office beginning on Monday, April 3rd. Return with student's birth certificate, shot record, social security number and utility bill. We enroll 138 PreK students in a first come, first serve manner. Priority is given to students that live in the Grove School District. If your child attended PreK this year, you do not need to enroll for K for the fall. However, if your child is new to kindergarten and has not attended the ECC, you will need to pick up a packet. Packets are accepted daily in the office, 9:00 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
