    Please note: Appointments for new VPK Enrollments will NOT be available during the month of January 2015. Instead, parents are encouraged to apply online or attend one of our outreach events. NOTE: Beacause January is a peak period for VPK, parents who come to the office may not be able to see a VPK counselor. PLEASE REMEMBER we serve walk-ins by emergency only. Self-service kiosks are available in our lobby for parents with limited access to a computer.
