School's Out Registration – Frequently Asked Questions
Q: My child attended School’s Out this past year, do I need to participate in the Lottery?
A: No. All children currently enrolled are guaranteed enrollment each year as long as they submit a form by the end of the registration period.
Q: My child attended School’s Out this past year and I have a younger child that will be starting kindergarten. Do I need to participate in the lottery to enroll the kindergartner?
A: No. All siblings of existing School’s Out children are guaranteed enrollment. Please notify us via email that you have a kindergartner coming into the school next year and we will provide you with a registration form (must submit a paper copy)
Q: I have multiple children. Will each child be entered into the lottery? Is it possible for one child to get in, and another end up on the wait list?
A: Each FAMILY will be granted ONE entry into the lottery. All children from that family will be enrolled if the lottery entry is drawn.
Q: Why don’t you expand the program to enroll everyone who wants to register their child?
A: We have worked really hard to expand the program to accommodate as many families as possible. We have grown from 59 kids to 75 in just two years. in 2014/2015 we added a "Kindergarten-Only" program which allowed us to increase capacity even further. Last year, all families that entered the lottery were granted enrollment, but if you do end up on the wait list we will do our best to get your child into the program as soon as possible. .
Q: How should I submit my registration form to be entered in the lottery?
A: Forms can be left in the School’s Out payment box on the wall in the cafeteria of your child’s school, left with the front desk staff, or mailed to “School’s Out, 2 Baldwin Ave, South Burlington, VT 05403”
Q: How will I know that you received my form?
A: You will receive an email confirmation by May 6th. If you do not receive this confirmation, it may mean that your form did not reach us. It is up to you to notify us if you did not receive the confirmation.
Q: Do I have to pay the $25 registration fee?
A: Yes, though we will only process your check when we are able to enroll your child. We will not process your payment if your child ends up on the waitlist. We may be able to waive the fee If you qualify for financial assistance.
