Welcome to Early Years

The Early Years Program began in 1986 with 1 classroom at Lafayette School, 2 teachers and a teacher's aide. There were 15 students the first year. Today the program has grown to include 7 classrooms at three different sites - The Morgan County Housing Authority is the landlord for classrooms located at Walnut Court and VAS, Murrayville United Methodist Church is the landlord for our classroom located in their church hall, and we have a classroom in the School District #117 Central Office building. There are 6 teachers, 6 paraprofessionals, 2 Parent Educators, a Principal, a secretary, and 2 custodians on staff to serve 180 students.  A Birth to 3 program staffed by 4 Parent Educators has also been added to Early Years to provide services for families with younger children. The Birth to 3 program currently serves about 80 families within the Jacksonville School District.

We have enjoyed serving the Jacksonville community for over 30 years and look forward to many more years of growth and learning!

Two Hour Late Start Option

The two hour late start option will be used whenever we have early morning weather issues that are predicted to “clear up”. For example, by delaying our buses two hours we hope to not have to cancel school completely for wind chill and light icing that will melt once the sun rises.

Here are some important points regarding this late start schedule:

  • All buses will start exactly two hours late.
  • All schools will end at the regular time.
  • There will not be any early morning Pre-K. All day Pre-K will start two hours late and afternoon Pre-K will operate as normal.
  • There will not be any home visits or groups for the Birth to 3 Program during the 2 hour delay time.
  • There will not be any daily buses for other events such as field trips or community visits.
  • Early Bird classes will be cancelled.
  • All other morning meetings will be cancelled (clubs, practices, etc.) including the morning Physical Therapy buses.

A late start day for emergency reasons is considered a complete school calendar day.
