    Waiting List

    Once the maximum student count is received per grade level, each student thereafter will go on our waiting list in the order in which they apply. Waiting list students will be notified (in the order in which they  fall on the list) by phone if a seat becomes available. Should the next student on the waiting list choose not to take a seat, his/her name will be removed from the waiting list and we will call the next student on the waiting list, this continues until all of the seats are filled.


    Out of District Transfers

    Out-of-District transfers will be considered and will need to follow the district process as well as submit an application.


    Military Dependents

    One additional spot per grade level, above the class size numbers, will be reserved for a military dependent student that is in transition and has transferred to the District after regular enrollment.
