    Transitional Kindergarten Lottery System
     
     
    Registering your child for Transitional Kindergarten is an exciting time for your family.  It can also be a stressful time for parents as they want to insure their child gets into the program.  We currently have 112 spots available for the 2015/2016 school year.  As the program grows in popularity from year to year, it's important each family has the same opportunity in the registration process.  Therefore, lottery procedures will be used for admission into the program.  In a school lottery, admission is determined through a random number lottery system.  Parents will fill out the required registration paperwork which will then be put into the lottery pool and names are drawn for the school's open slots. If a child doesn't receive a spot into the program, their name will be placed on the waitlist using the same lottery process.           
     
    If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call us at 985-3626.  Thank you!
