Page : . : ' VALLEY TIMES, St. Paul, VA, Thursday, April 9, 2009 CORRECTION Due a typographical error in our April 2 issue, an incorrect date relating to student age was provided for parents who plan to enroll their children in Pre-K or kindergarten in Russell County. The story on Pre-K and kindergarten registration listed September 10, 2009, as the date by which a child must have reached his/her fourth birthday in order to be eligible for Pre-K. The date which should have been listed is September 30, 2009. We regret the error and any confusion it may have caused.
