New Student Application/Registration Procedures
Application for Admission
Applications may be picked up at the school office Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Applications should be completed with a copy of the child’s birth certificate attached and returned to the School Office with a check for $35.00. Download the Admission form from below.
A Teacher’s Evaluation form should be forwarded to the child’s current teacher for completion prior to the child’s evaluation. The current teacher may mail this confidential evaluation to Salem Lutheran School under separate cover, along with any supporting documents including report cards and school evaluation forms. Please download the Teacher’s Evaluation form from below and have the previous teacher send it to the Salem School Office.
Applications are accepted for the next school year beginning September 1 and names are placed on the waiting list in order of date received. Applicants are contacted in list order, with the following students receiving priority:
- Students with siblings attending Salem Lutheran School
- Salem Lutheran Church members
- All accounts paid in full and current
Beginning March 1, the School Office will contact parents on the waiting list to schedule an evaluation of their child. A check for $35.00 payable to Salem Lutheran School is due at the time of evaluation.
After the evaluation is completed, the teacher and principal meet to review the results and then parents are contacted to discuss the outcome. If the student is accepted, an Enrollment Form is sent to them for completion.
A non-refundable $300.00 Comprehensive Fee is collected at the time the Enrollment Form is submitted. This fee includes registration, activity fee, book fee, insurance and other items. Payment of this fee guarantees the child’s space in class.
Registration packets are mailed out to all incoming students in May. Forms should be completed and returned to the School Office by June 1.
