Chaparral Kindergarten 2017-18 Registration | Lottery Unnecessary


Chaparral School is capped at 75 students at each grade level for the 2017-18 school year. Kindergarten registrations for the 2017-18 school year were received from January 9 to February 13, 2017. The number of registrations received was less than 75, therefore the implementation of a Lottery was not needed.

ALL (all 3 priority category) kindergarten registrants to date, February 21st, 2017, will be able to attend Chaparral School for the 2017-18 school year.


Dear Parents/Guardians of 2017-18 Chaparral Kindergarten Students,

  5. CBE Volunteer Information.
  6. Reminder to “Subscribe” to School Messenger to receive communication from the School.
