and

Lottery Letter for the 2021-22 School Year


Lottery Information

A student is eligible for the Kids Club Lottery when they are enrolled at their neighborhood school that has a correlating Kids Club Program onsite. Each site is limited in the number of TK and Kindergarten students they can accept each year. The number of students enrolled is determined by the number of students leaving at the end of the school year. Other spaces become available when an enrolled family leaves Kids Club.


Kids Club priorities for enrollment are as follows:

1. Eligible TK and Kindergarten siblings of students that are currently enrolled

2. TK and Kindergarten students and their eligible siblings

3. Students taken from the current waiting list and determined by individual site needs


All eligible TK and Kindergarten students are placed on the Kids Club Wait List via a computer generated list. The Lottery uses random selection and is conducted by the PUSD Technology Services Department. The Lottery will determine which TK and Kindergarten students will be given the first option to enroll in available spaces at their Kids Club site.


The Lottery will also establish the Wait List at each program site, indicating the order in which TK and Kindergarten students will be admitted as openings occur. To remain active on your neighborhood school's Kids Club Wait List, your child must have continual enrollment at that PUSD elementary school. Students not enrolled at the corresponding school site will be removed from our waiting list.


During the eligibility dates, through March 19, 2021 this year, families can submit a completed lottery form online. We close the Lottery Registration at this time so that we can verify enrollment at schools, work with Student Services for placement, and notify families early enough in April for them to make alternate plans if they are not accepted into Kids Club. If your form is received after the Lottery closing date, your child’s name will be added to the bottom of the Wait List.


Results of the Lottery will be distributed via email by each Kids Club Site on Friday, April 16, 2021.


Special Note for Open Enrollment

Families requesting OE for their Kindergarten child(ren) are ONLY eligible for the lottery at their school of residence. Once Student Services has processed the application requests for Open Enrollment, your child's name can be transferred to the appropriate site’s WAIT LIST (PLEASE NOTE: Your child will be added to the bottom of the list – Kids Club lottery acceptance does not transfer).


Families will receive an email from Kids Club after the Lottery, and we will not reach out to families again until we have an opening.
