2.  Kindergarten Lottery 

If more kindergarten applications are received than we have space for, your child’s application will be entred into a random enrollment lottery. This process helps us ensure fairness in the application process. For 1st-8th grade, Rowe has a rolling waitlist, this means that seats will be offered in the order they are recieved. If we need to create a waitlist and lottery for these grades, you will be notified.

3.  Notification via email

Once the kindergarten lottery is complete, you will receive notification on whether your child was accepted or waitlisted at Rowe. For grades 1st-8th, waitlist acceptance letters will be mailed out after the Kindergarten lottery.
