Please submit your registration request through the Genesis Open Registration portal and be sure to upload required proofs of residency, your child’s birth certificate or passport, custody documents (if applicable), and immunization records/physical examination documents. Additional required forms can be found on our website and must also be uploaded at this time (i.e. Home Language Survey, Authorization for Exchange of Confidential Information, etc.). Please reference the Registration Overview page for all required documents, as well as additional documents that may be applicable to your child(ren).
The process for Pre-K selection is as follows:
- At the time of registration, each registrant will be entered into a system that will randomly select names.
- At the close of the registration period on March 28, 2024 at 8:30 AM, all applications will be placed in order according to the randomized name drawing.
- Seats will be assigned according to this drawing and based on the selected program.
- It is our hope that we can accommodate all students, and we will offer a “second” choice as an option during the online registration process.
- Parents will be notified of their child’s assignment sometime around the end of April.
- Should we have remaining seats following the close of registration, we will reopen registration
