Open Enrollment and Lottery
Open EnrollmentOpen Enrollment for the upcoming school year begins on the first day of school at 8:00 a.m. school’s local time and ends at 5:00 p.m. on the last business day in February. If more applications are received than there are seats available, a random selection lottery will take place to determine which applicants are offered an available seat and determine the order of the waiting list. If fewer applications have been received than there are seats available, all students will be accepted.
LotteryLottery is a random selection process to fill available seats for all grade levels. A lottery is only held if the number of applications received during Open Enrollment is greater than the number of seats available in any grade level. Lotteries take place in March. Lottery information will be posted to the school calendar.

We will contact you by mail and email if there is an available seat at our school for your child. Please keep your contact information up to date at our school. If we cannot get a hold of you by either means, your child’s seat may be forfeited.
