Lorrery Ticket numbers that were accepted
According to Florida Statute and our Charter with the School District of Palm Beach County, PBMA and all Charter Schools must hold a public lottery if the number of applications exceeds the number of available seats among new applicants after reenrollment. We will hold our lottery on March 5th, 2014, in the Lantana 2 Middle School cafeteria at 6:00pm. The address is 600 East Coast Ave., Lantana, Florida. Everyone is encouraged to attend, but you do not need to be there to win a spot!
Also as per our Charter, siblings of current students will receive priority.
This week we will send home a ticket to parents of our new applicants with a number on it; we will draw from those numbers on March 6th. This will apply to all NEW applications that have been turned in and COMPLETED. The office staff has attempted to contact everyone who has an incomplete application.
We look forward to seeing you on March 5th, 2014, at 6pm.
