DIAL-4 Parent Questionnaires

have been sent to families of Pre-K students that will attend the 2020-21 school year. Please return this form in the enclosed self-addressed stamped envelope asap. The State requires that all students be screened for potential developmental delays and due to the current pandemic protocols we will begin with the students that parents indicate there are some concerns. We will be scheduling these screenings prior to the start of school, remaining students screened after the start of the school year. Be well and we will continue to keep you updated through emails and this website.
