Registration

**Please review the LCDS Policy Summary and the Volunteer Positions and Duties Document before you submit your child’s application to register.

Registration for the 2023 – 2024 school year:
LCDS current members and previous families have priority for registering for the coming school year.  They will have until February 7th to register.  LCDS will begin accepting new registration applications after February 8th, 2023. Forms are available from our school office, or you can print from the online registration tab (after January 18th).
Priority is given to those families registering for Kindergarten.
Jr. Kindergarten spots are determined after April 30th and will only be available if all the Kindergarten spots have not been filled.  We will note your program choice when you register, and the spots will be filled in the order we received your registration.  We will keep a waitlist and if there are any changes over the summer we will contact you to move your child into the Jr. Kindergarten program.

Classroom Viewing and Meeting the Teacher:
Due to the continued illness outbreaks in our community our Open House events will be by appointment only.  If you would like to view the classroom or meet the Teacher, you can call the school office to book an appointment for our Open House event on Wednesday January 25th and February 22nd from 6:30 pm – 7:00 pm, 7:00 pm – 7:30 pm and 7:30 pm – 8:00 pm.  Individual appointments can also be booked on available dates but will be booked for after school hours between 4:15 pm to 5:15 pm on available dates.

Educational Supports:
LCDS holds 2 spots for PUF placements.  These spots become available at the end of May as the current families registered holding these spots have priority if they will be returning for another year of school.  Families may inquire with the school office whether there will be any available registration spots for the coming year.  LCDS may also ask to meet with you and your child to determine the level of support your child may need.

Registration Priority
Current registered families and siblings and previous registered families will be given priority to register for the next school year.  Registration forms will be given out to families in January and will be required to submit them to the school office by the end of the first week of February to secure their spot for September.  After the first week of February registration will be open to new registrations. 

Specific dates will be posted.
New Families interested in registering are invited to attend the Open House events in January and February.  Open House is facilitated in a format where parents can attend with their children, experience the classroom, meet the Teacher, other staff members and other LCDS Parents. Prospective new Families may direct any of their questions to the LCDS Staff Members or Parents in attendance.

A wait list is formed when the program is full.  If there are any withdrawals prior to September, the wait list will be accessed by the date in which families were added to the list.
