To improve student safety and parent experience, the pick-up and drop-off procedures at Ballard County Preschool - Head Start are changing this year when BCPS opens on Aug. 27.

All regular-day drop-offs will take place behind the preschool, as well as the morning and noontime pick-ups. The ONLY pick-up that still will be in front of the building is the 3:30 p.m. pick-up. Please read the rest of this story very carefully, and contact us at 270-665-8400, ext. 2100, if you have any questions. We want this transition to be as smooth and easy as possible for our students and parents.
