Another great quick guide that was sent out from my sons Parent Coordinator this week gave a quick list of deadlines for Public Pre-K and Kindergarten applicants for the 2010 school year. Last year I pulled my son out of private school at the last minute and the process was such a complete headache trying to enroll him in the fall when I discovered that most of the parents had enrolled in all of the best schools in the spring.
Anyway, hoping to save you some headache. Here you go!
"Please see below for the admissions timeline for general education kindergarten and preK. It seems that we will have the same procedure as last year meaning that you must fill out an application for a kindergarten seat in your school zone between February 1st and March 12th. I am not sure how non-zoned siblings will apply. They have not made any announcement regarding a Lottery. I will distribute that information when it becomes available."
