    It looks like the only eligible students for Pre-K are for students that are disadvantaged, military, etc.? Is that correct? Are there other opportunities for a child to be considered? If there is enough space? Thank you in advance.

      Hi Chelsea! We appreciate your comment. The Melissa Schools Pre-K program is a qualifying program and the student must be identified under one of the five categories. At this time, the Pre-K program does not offer other opportunities for placement. If you need further assistance or clarification, we encourage you to call the front office at Harry McKillop Elementary School at 972-837-2632. Thank you!
