  • complete physical examination (within the past 12 months)  Assessment date must be within the past 12 months.

 Head Start also requires children’s health insurance cards and child’s dental exam within the past six months.

You can follow the link to Apply.  The Application takes about 20 minutes to complete.

 There are a limited number of spots, so applying does not guarantee acceptance.
Notifications of enrollment will be sent by May 12.  Students who are not initially accepted are placed on a waiting list, in case a spot opens during the school year. 10 percent of enrollment is for children with disabilities.

Petersburg City Public Schools offers transportation to all enrolled students. However, an adult must be at the bus stop each day to receive child  to avoid loss of transportation.

Westview is a NO OUTSIDE food school.  Please notify the office if you need paper work for special diets.

Parents must attend an orientation in August before their children can start prekindergarten.
