LOS holds an open house every year in late winter or early spring for prospective families and applications are due shortly after the open house date. The school holds a lottery drawing within two weeks of the deadline to fill open spaces. Applicant families will be notified afterward and told whether they have a spot or what number they are on the waiting list. After the lottery is held, applications will still be accepted, but applicants will automatically be put at the end of the waiting list.
When filling the school roster, priority is given first to returning families, then to alumni, including siblings of past students and children of past students, and remaining spaces will be filled during the lottery drawing.
During the school year, if a space becomes available, the first family on the waiting list will be notified. After winter break, it is up to the teacher as to whether any new students will be added if there is an opening.
Please note – In order to attend LOS, children must be three years old by September 1 and they must be potty trained.
We are currently accepting applications for the 2013/2014 school year. The application deadline is March 1st, and the lottery will be held on the 5th of March. Any applications submitted after March 1st will be added to the end of the wait list. There is a $20 application fee.
After a student is accepted, families who wish to observe the classroom during school hours can set up an appointment with the Membership Coordinator. In order to be fair to all applicants, we do not offer classroom visitation prior to the Open House.
For additional information, please feel free to email the Membership Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
