Registration Process for Holy Comforter Preschool
1. All of our registration forms are available online. Please print out and fill in all the appropriate forms from the links below (please make sure you include the Registration Programs Offered page). There are also complete registration packets available in the office if you are not able to print out the forms below.
2. The registration form will allow parents to indicate a program preference in terms of the number of days and time of day (morning or afternoon) appropriate for their child's age. Birthday cut-off ages will remain unchanged. Those selecting parishioner status must include the parishioner form signed by the church office. An $85 registration check must be included.
3. Registration materials, whether mailed or hand-delivered are due in the Director's office not later than 3:00pm on Thursday, February 14th, 2019. All related registration materials can be delivered or mailed to the Director anytime on or after January 7th. The envelope should be completely unmarked, apart from the priority category. Use a separate envelope for a stamp and return address if mailing registration material.
4. All applicants who have submitted registration forms to the Director's office by the 2/14/19 (1:00 pm) deadline will be included in a "lottery". A lottery will be conducted within each of categories A-G. All envelopes classified as Category A will randomly be put in a pile. The Director will open each envelope and place the student in a program indicated on the registration form. Once the Category A envelopes are all opened and registered, the category B envelopes will be randomly put in a pile and each envelope will be opened and the student registered. This will continue for each category until all the program slots in the school are filled.
Registration for the 2019 - 2020 school year will begin January 7th, 2019. Parents who are interested in enrolling their children at Holy Comforter Preschool will be offered a tour of the school by our school director, Linda Meyers. Tours are scheduled through the preschool office (703-938-3704). The tour is offered to both parents and children to visit the classrooms, the school facility, as well as meet with the director. Each family will be offered a registration packet during the tour. Registration Packets will be available in the director's office (or online; see below for links) and are due Thursday, February 14th, 2019, by 3pm. Parents will receive an email to confirm your child's placement beginning Tuesday, February 19th, 2019. Registration throughout the year can occur whenever an opening is available. Please contact Linda Meyers at 703-938-3704 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
