Lottery applications for the 2020-2021 school year will be available online January 1, 2020. The deadline to apply for the lottery will be February 15, 2020. Once you apply online, you will receive a confirmation email within 2-3 business days letting you know that we received your application. You will be notified via email Tuesday, February 18th, 2020 if your student received a spot. Please make sure to keep all information updated with us! Any application from February 16th, 2020 on, will automatically be placed on a waiting list for that grade level until a spot becomes available for that school year. If a seat does become available after you have been placed on the waiting list, you will receive another email specifying your student received a spot. 
Current enrolled students are receiving a Recommitment Letter (to let us know if you are returning for the 2020-2021 school year) on Monday, February 3rd, 2020. They are due back no later than Wednesday, February 12th, 2020. If the form is not completed and turned in by the deadline, your student will lose their returning spot for next year and will have to then re-apply in which he/she will be put on the waiting list.
