Pre-Kindergarten Program

  • 2020-2021 PK Tuition & Lunch Prices (as of June 2020)

    Muenster Elementary offers a Full-Day Pre-Kindergarten program.

    The Muenster ISD Board of Trustees believes that the pre-kindergarten program gives four-year old students a valuable opportunity for a head start in their education.

    A child must meet one of the following criteria to be eligible for the pre-kindergarten program:

    1. Be unable to speak and comprehend the English language.
    2. Be educationally disadvantaged (includes students that qualify for the National Breakfast/Lunch Program).

    Since the school district receives funds based upon eligible students, all parents are asked to complete the National Breakfast/Lunch Free/Reduced program form at the time of registration.

    If a school district has 15 or more students that meet the eligibility criteria, the school district must offer a pre-kindergarten program.  

    The 77th Legislature passed Senate Bill 596, which allows a school district to offer a pre-kindergarten program for ineligible students on a tuition basis.

    Based upon Senate Bill 596, the Muenster ISD Board establishes a tuition rate for each school year.  The tuition for students is due on the first day of school for August and by the seventh of the month thereafter.  

    My School Bucks is an online payment service that provides parents the ability to securely pay for tuition and meals, monitor student cafeteria purchases, and receive email notifications for low account balances. Pre-K Tuition can also be paid in advance by check or cash.  Please place payment in an envelope with his/her name on it, so it can be credited to the correct account. 

     There will not be any refunds for absentees.
