From the staff at Little Giants Preschool:

We have started contacting parents whose children have been accepted for next year's preschool program. We have NOT contacted everyone yet, but accepted families will be receiving a text message by the end of this week. Packets will be mailed out this week, and should be to you by early next week. 

Please don't call us if you haven't heard from us - we have a LOT to do (we have almost 300 kids!), and are still in the enrollment process.
