To Complete the Preschool Lottery Applications for the 2021 - 2022 School Year please click here. Your child needs to be 3 or 4 years old by Dec. 31, 2021. If your child turns 5 prior to Dec. 31, 2021, then your child is eligible for Kindergarten and not eligible for the preschool program.
We will be holding the Lottery on Tuesday, March 30, 2021. You do not need to attend for your child to be considered for the Lottery. All families will be contacted on March 30th.
The Student Services Department is committed to providing a continuum of specialized instruction, related services, and accommodations for students with disabilities that affords them the opportunity to meet the demands of the general education curriculum. Through the collaboration of special and general education teachers and related services staff, we provide individually designed instruction that addresses both academic and social emotional learning. We believe the most successful student outcomes will be the result of collaborative work between the student, parents and staff.
