Early Learning Center signups underway

The Rugby Public School District has received a $50,000 school improvement grant to help offset the costs of the new Rugby Early Learning Center. The Rugby Early Learning Center is a full day preschool program that will operate Monday Thursday beginning this fall. This was a competitive grant and only 10 schools were selected from across the state. This one-time grant will go a long way to help provide high quality preschooling for the Rugby area. The program is free for parents that have children ages 3-5. We are currently accepting applications for the fall and have a few spots remaining. Please contact the high school at 701-776-5201 for more information.
