It's enrollment time!

McALESTER — Students start back to school at McAlester Public Schools on Aug. 14, and it’s enrollment time.

School administrators say there is some very important information parents and students should know to start the school year.

Enrollment for preschool through eighth grade will begin for new students who will attend MPS.

Seventh and eighth grades at Puterbaugh Middle School can enroll July 29 between  9 a.m. and 2 p.m., according to Debbie Watkins, MPS director of public relations.

All students — including pre-k — who pre-enrolled last spring should confirm their place on July 30, she said, from 12 until 6 p.m. or on July 31 from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the school where students will attend class.

New student enrollment for ninth through 12th grades will be at the McAlester High School, Watkins said, on July 18 from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. and on July 19 from 8 a.m. until noon.

High school seniors already enrolled at MHS can pick up their class schedules between the hours of 2 and 6 p.m. on July 22. During the same time, juniors can pick up their schedules on July 23, sophomores on July 24 and freshmen on July 25.

Watkins said if high school students are unable to pick up their schedules on the day for their class, they can come on July 26 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.

She said all pre-k and kindergarten students will attend class for half a day, 8 a.m. until noon, Aug. 14-23 and their first full day classes will be Aug. 26. 

Also, she said, the Beyond the Bell, the MPS after-school program, will begin Aug. 26 and will be at MPS Early Childhood Centers: Jefferson ECC, Washington ECC, and William Gay ECC.
