It’s That Time Again

It’s That Time Again

Registration for next year will begin shortly. All returning students and their siblings may register for next year beginning February 1, 2012. Registration cards can be picked up at the office at each school. Returning students are guaranteed a slot if they return the registration card before March 1st. Siblings will not have to participate in the lottery as long as there are openings for everyone applying. Otherwise a separate Lottery for siblings will be held on February 29, 2012.

Beginning March 1, 2012, we will open registration up to all members of the El Paso community. Anyone interested in sending a child to our schools may pick up a registration form and an enrollment packet or download these documents from our website. On Friday, March 30th, 2012 our first lottery will take place. Anyone who does not gain a slot will be placed on the waiting list. As new openings occur, (and they always do), we hold another lottery.

The School Leadership will hold Open Houses throughout the month of March and forward, in order to answer questions about the schools and offer tours. Watch for Open House dates on our website.

Please help us spread the word about the wonderful Burnham Wood Family of Fine Schools. Families living on the Eastside should not pass up a chance to visit Vista del Futuro, our newest school. They will be impressed!
