The previous policy stated that a child must be five by September 30 of the year they are going to enroll in kindergarten.

Willoughby-Eastlake In the News
 

 

During the next several months, the construction taking place in Willoughby-Eastlake will be featured in Mimi Magazine, an online magazine created by Mimi Vanderhaven in 2003.
