A waiting list is established once a class is filled. If no space is available at the time you apply, your child will be placed on a waiting list. Spaces are filled as they occur, up until February of the current school year. Waiting lists DO NOT carry over from year to year. If you remain on the waiting list and your child does not receive a spot, you must reapply the following school year.
