Please note that if you are extended an offer for enrollment through one of the preferences above, you will need to provide supporting documentation in the enrollment packet to accept the enrollment offer. A verification of this will be done prior to finalizing your child’s enrollment. If your child was offered enrollment via a preference and LbD deems that the child does not qualify, your child's offer will be revoked and they will be moved to the bottom of the waiting list.

Parents who turned in lottery forms will be notified via email or letter of the date and time of the public drawing for the 2022-23 Lottery.  

Lottery spaces will be pulled in order of grade level by an impartial staff member. The lottery procedure will be monitored by the Executive Director to ensure fair and accurate implementation. As names are pulled, students will be assigned a number corresponding to the number of enrollment slots. Once a grade level is drawn to capacity, applications will continue to be drawn for position on a waitlist.
