*Please take note this is a COMPUTERIZED lottery.

 

Since we will not know whether there will be openings in these grades (until the beginning of the next school year), we hold lotteries to create waiting lists.   Then, if a spot or spots become available, they will be offered to the children on the waiting list for that campus and grade.  Waiting lists for siblings are also kept for each grade.  Siblings receive first preference in enrollment.  If there is no eligible sibling waiting, the opening is offered to the first child on the waiting list for the applicable grade.

 

*Check our events on the calendar for informational meetings for parents.
