Is that the week of registration for your district? I received my letter Saturday and my district registration form would have had to be in by April 23rd.

All the applications for the whole district were due Feb. 28. I know it's a big, convoluted system, but 2 months is a long time to wait!

I am waiting to hear which magnet school my dd will start at in the fall. Our city schools ask for you're top 3 choices out of 6 schools, we are fine with all our top 3, so it's cool. Last year I went through the same thing with my son, and he did not get any of our top 3, however all the schools here are great, and the one he is at turned out to be a great place for him. Either way, we will have a spot somewhere in the school district, so at least I don't have that to worry about.

We got into the preschool program. We have orientation tomorrow and to pick up a application that has to be returne within 14days or they will take it as you dont want your child in the program. We did 8:30 til 12pm option which is minimum participation. I am dreading the cost though. But he gets a spot to attend that school next year for K til 6th grade just because he is attending their preschool program. It's a public school and a magnet school for communication arts.

So we just got our lottery results and we're pretty high on the waitlist. Even though they keep the waitlist going until the fall I think it's pretty unlikely that a lot of people would decide not to choose the school. Now we need to figure out how to pay for Montessori for next year because we really don't want to send him to our local public school-- at least not for Kindergarten.

Good luck to everyone else who is still waiting to hear.

My son did not get into the magnet we wanted. We're trying to decide whether to send him to a less desirable school or homeschool for 2nd grade and try again next year.

Sorry to hear that. It's so frustrating, isn't it?! Do they give you a flat "no" or do you get a tantalizing waitlist spot like we do?

I hope it all works out for next year, whatever you decide to do.

I just felt like posting a quick update: we were just notified this week that DS got in off the waitlist!! I can't believe they made it to our spot on the waitlist after only 6 weeks of school.
