WE ARE CURRENTLY A D51 PUBLIC MAGNET K-5 SCHOOL WITH A STEAM CURRICULAR FOCUS. LEARNERS FROM ALL OVER THE GRAND VALLEY ARE CHOSEN AT RANDOM THROUGH A LOTTERY SYSTEM EVERY YEAR. 


THE 2022 APPLICATION PROCESS WILL BEGIN WEDNESDAY, JAN. 5, 2022, AND RUN THROUGH WEDNESDAY, JAN. 12, 2022. 


PARENTS/GUARDIANS CAN PICK UP LOTTERY REGISTRATION MATERIALS BETWEEN 8 A.M. AND 4 P.M. MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY DURING THIS TIMEFRAME IN THE MAIN OFFICE.


NEW EMERSON IS LOCATED AT 2660 UNAWEEP.


CHILDREN WITH SIBLINGS AT NEW EMERSON WILL RECEIVE PRIORITY ENROLLMENT IN NEW EMERSON, AND SIBLING REGISTRATION IS TAKING PLACE IN DECEMBER THROUGH THURSDAY, DEC. 16, 2022.

NEW EMERSON'S LOTTERY DRAWING WILL TAKE PLACE ON FRIDAY, JAN. 14, AND NO INDIVIDUAL PARENT MEETINGS OR TOURS WILL BE SCHEDULED WITH STAFF PRIOR TO THE DRAWING THIS YEAR. 


AFTER THE LOTTERY ON JANUARY 14, LETTERS WILL BE SENT OUT.


PLEASE DO NOT CALL. 


YOU SHOULD RECEIVE YOUR LETTER STATING WHETHER YOUR CHILD'S NAME WAS CHOSEN OR WAIT-LISTED IN THE MAIL NO LATER THAN FEBRUARY 1, 2022.

PARENTS/GUARDIANS OF ANY CHILD CHOSEN TO REGISTER MUST CALL THE SCHOOL BY THE FIFTH SCHOOL DAY AFTER THE DATE ON THE LETTER TO CONFIRM THEIR CHILD WILL ATTEND THE SCHOOL IN 2022-23. THE LETTER WILL ALSO LIST A DEADLINE IN APRIL FOR FINAL REGISTRATION FOR INCOMING KINDERGARTEN STUDENTS, AND THERE WILL BE A BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT IN MAY.

WHILE MOST STUDENTS START NEW EMERSON IN KINDERGARTEN, PARENTS/GUARDIANS OF STUDENTS WHO WILL BE IN GRADES 1-5 IN 2022-23 CAN APPLY FOR A WAITLIST SPOT IN EITHER SCHOOL JAN. 5-12. NEW EMERSON DOES A LOTTERY DRAWING FOR GRADES 1-5. 

THE WAITING LIST DOES NOT ROLL OVER EACH YEAR, SO ANYONE WHO APPLIED FOR THE WAITLIST LAST YEAR WILL NEED TO APPLY AGAIN.
