If you have developmental concerns for your 3 or 4 year old child or would like to put your child on our WAITING LIST, please call (719) 391-3375!
The WSD3 Preschool Program is an inclusive program that serves children with special needs, children with identified risk factors, and children that pay tuition to attend. Children must be 3 or 4 years old by Oct. 1, 2014 to attend. We fill the program from our waiting list. When a slot becomes available we will notify you and then you may register your child online or at North Preschool. Unfortunately, due to limited space, your online registration will be denied unless your child has been put on our waiting list and we have contacted you to guarantee your child's slot. Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to hearing from you!

Community Night - Rachel's Challenge
While her life was tragically cut short during the Columbine High School shooting on April 20, 1999, Rachel Joy Scott's shining example of kindness and compassion was not defeated that day. Come hear the inspiring true story of one girl's dream being fulfilled over a decade after her death. The presentation is a powerful reminder of the little things we can do every day to make our world a better place.

2014-15 Bus Route Information
Beginning this school year the Transportation Department has launched Versatrans e-link to give parents and schools the ability to look up the most accurate bus information. This is a new way for families and schools to access transportation information, schedules, and routes. For security and efficiency reasons, we will no longer post bus routes on the Internet. The new student transportation online information system utilizes the latest routing technology to maintain accurate, up-to-date, and "real time" bus routing information.
For more information, visit the Transportation Department page.
700+ Chromebooks for WSD3
Widefield School District 3 is excited to bring more than 700 Google Chromebooks into our classrooms for the 2014-15 school year. Students will get the opportunity to improve typing and online test-taking skills and be able to easily communicate and collaborate using Google Apps for Education. Students will also be able to access their files stored in Google Drive from anywhere. Chromebooks have proved to be a reliable and stable testing device for the state required CMAS and PARCC. Students and staff will enjoy the fast startup times, all day battery life and ease of use. Widefield School District 3 believes Chromebooks will help improve the learning environment in our classrooms by increasing student engagement.
