Cedris Bullard – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- The time for Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) Mini-Mustang registration has arrived. Before registering, there are a few requirements children must meet to join the program.
A child who becomes a Mini-Mustang must be a Manatee County resident.
The second requirement is that a parent or guardian must do school choice or Manatee county school’s open enrollment between March 5-15.
Lastly the child must be 4-years-old before by Sept. 1.
Mini-Mustangs teacher Cass Schutte stresses that all three requirements are necessary.
“There are three main requirements you must complete which are easy,” she said, “but you must complete all of them.”
Schutte said all requirements must by met by the end of March.
