The soft close for enrollment was April 15, and 302 students chose to come back for the next school year.

A lottery will affect some grade levels at the school and that lottery will have to be done publicly. A special meeting will be announced when this is done.

Some classrooms will have increased class sizes, but more staff will be hired to help with the increase in students.
