Dear Potential Riceville CSD Preschool Families,

The Riceville CSD is planning for our 4 year old preschool program for the 2020-2021 school year. Any student who is 4 years old by or on September 15, 2020 will be eligible to attend the preschool program.

The number of students who enroll in our preschool program will determine what the structure of our program will be next year. Below are the options that will be considered after we have the information from registration.

Option 1: Riceville CSD Preschool would offer four full days per week on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Full day sessions will run from 8:00-3:10 p.m. and half-day sessions will run from 8:00-11:00 a.m. The full day sessions have a tuition fee for the afternoons and half-day sessions are in the mornings only. Mornings are covered under the state preschool grant so there is no tuition for half-days. The district does not provide mid-day transportation, so if you choose half-days you would need to pick your student up.

Option 2: Students would attend four half days and a morning and afternoon session would be offered. Students would attend Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings or afternoons. There would be no mid-day transportation. This would be covered under the state preschool grant and there would be no tuition charge.

Option 3: Students would attend two full days of preschool a week. They would attend Monday/Thursday or Tuesday/Friday. This would be covered under the state preschool grant and there would be no tuition charge.


To register, you will need to go to the Riceville CSD webpage www.riceville.k12.ia.us and click on the Preschool Registration link, which will be available beginning Monday, October 28th, or click here to register. Please complete the form by filling out the information and submit it.

Students are accepted based on the order they register, so please sign up early to secure a spot for next year for your child.

If you have any questions please contact the school at 641-985-2288.

Thank you,
