We will review and consider requests for school transfers using our prescribed criteria (sibling, hardship, preference) based on available seats and without transportation up until 12pm on Tuesday, August 29, 2017. Following this, we will not entertain any transfer requests until September 25, 2017 when we will have a better understanding of total enrollment registrations and actual student attendance. Thank you for your efforts and patience during this process.
