NEW: TK eligibility for 2022-23 has expanded to students who turn 5 years old between September 2nd, 2021 and February 2nd, 2022.


The late application for Choices 2022-23 opened February 1, 2022. Students who apply during the late window are not included in the lottery drawing and will be placed at the bottom of the wait list in the order received.

The lottery is for new students who do not live within the WHECES boundaries and for SIBLINGS of students currently here on a lottery permit. Siblings of students who are in TK through 4th grade are guaranteed priority of placement if space is available.

The lottery will create a waitlist and does not guarantee enrollment. We will call in the order of the waitlist, as determined by the lottery, if and when there is an opening available. The waitlist will NOT post your child's name, ONLY their application confirmation number.

Parents will be notified via email if their child was Selected or Waitlisted by mid-March. Our office will call and/or email waitlisted families through the summer if space is still available.

To celebrate Halloween this year, students will be participating in a costume parade on Friday, October 29. In order to comply with Covid safety protocol, the students will be socially distanced and will be required to wear their face coverings.

Our parade will take place on the upper yard. Each grade level will follow the allotted time shared below. Family/friends may observe through the fence. As in previous years, costumes may not include weapons or costume masks of any kind.

The schedule is as follows:

TK-K 8:05-8:25, First Grade 8:40-9:00, Second Grade 9:10-9:30, Third Grade 11:00-11:20, Fourth Grade 1:30-1:50, Fifth Grade 2:05-2:25. As part of the festivities, families will have the opportunity to donate non-food items to their classroom teachers. Per Covid safety guidelines, donations must be received by October 22nd. This will ensure ample time for the teachers to air out items and assemble the goody bags. We look forward to seeing you there!
