SRES Preschool

Southampton Road Elementary School Principal Mary Cieplik introduced preschool teachers Colleen Murphy, who teaches three-year-olds, and Christina Doherty, who teaches four-year-olds, to speak to the School Committee on Dec. 19 about the full-day pilot preschool program in the school.

The full-day preschool is free to families this year and next year, thanks to Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds. The school runs during regular school hours, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. Ninety families applied for the 30 available slots this year, 15 for each classroom, and were selected by lottery.
