To plan for the 2001-02 school year, the Grand Island School District is trying to determine how many town children are eligible to enroll in kindergarten in September.
Any child who will be 5 on or before Dec. 1 is eligible.
The district is asking parents to call 773-8819 between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. with their name, the child's name, date of birth, address and telephone number.
Parents are asked to call even if they do not plan on sending their child to kindergarten next year, or if they plan to send the child to a private or parochial school.
