• Thompson School District is Accepting Second-Round Open Enrollment Applications for the 2021-2022 School Year

    First-Round Open Enrollment for the 2021-22 school year has ended. If you would still like to open enroll in another Thompson School (other than your neighborhood school) for the 2021-22 school year, Second-Round Open Enrollment opened Friday, April 2, 2021 at 8:00a.m. Below is the link to the open enrollment application for the 2021-2022 school year (beginning August 2021). A separate application must be submitted for each student to each school you wish to apply to. Please note that if you filled out a 2020-2021 Open Enrollment form in error and want to apply for the 2021-22 school year, you will need to complete a Second-Round Open Enrollment Application. If your child is already open enrolled at a school and you wish to continue your enrollment there for the next school year, you do not need to re-apply. However, if you have an additional student you would like to open enroll at that building, you will need to fill out an application.

    Once you complete the Open Enrollment Application you can expect the following:

    1. Application Review and Notification from Requested School: In order of receipt, the principal (and in some cases other staff) will review your application to determine if there is space available and applicants meet the eligibility criteria. Note: Applications can be submitted over summer, but will not be reviewed until school staff returns from summer break.
    2. Letters of acceptance and/or denial will be sent to the mailing address provided in the application as they review applications
      • If applicants are not accepted, you will be placed on a waitlist, which will remain in effect for the duration of the school year. Applicants may reapply under school of choice/open enrollment for the following year. The choice/open enrollment process for the following year shall be conducted without considering the existing waitlist for the current year.
      • If accepted, applicants must confirm in writing of their intent to enroll no later than the date listed on the acceptance letter. If no response is received, this will be deemed a decline of the acceptance and the space may be offered to the next applicant on the waitlist.
    3. Please continue with registration at your school of residence until you receive confirmation of acceptance at your school of choice. If your application is accepted, you will need to confirm to the school of choice that you still plan to send your child there. At that time your enrollment will be transferred.

    Attention High Plains School, Winona Elementary, and Conrad Ball Middle School Families:

    Last Spring, the TSD Board of Education approved attendance boundary changes, one of which impacts enrollment at High Plains School, Winona Elementary, and Conrad Ball Middle School. Please use the school locator tool to determine if your household is in the affected boundary area.

    In cases where a school (HPS/WES/CBMS) affected by boundary changes is designated as open, the applicable school of choice/open enrollment procedures will be followed, with the exception that students previously enrolled at the school would have priority over new students. All K-7th students currently enrolled at HPS/WES/CBMS in the affected boundary area must open enroll, if they wish their child(ren) to remain at their current school. Current 7th grade students at High Plains School, Conrad Ball Middle School, and current 4th grade students at Winona Elementary School who would be moved to the Riverview PK-8 School attendance area by the boundary change will be able to open enroll back to their current school for their final year, whether the school was designated for open enrollment or not. These procedures were put into place so that students going into their last year at a school could complete that level at the same school. All other grade level open enrollments from the affected boundary area (K-3rd at WES, K-6th at HPS, and 6th at CBMS) will be determined based on availability of space and staffing at each grade level.

    Refer to Board Policies on Admissions and Open Enrollment: JF, JF-E, JFBA/JFBB, and JFBA/JFBB-R.
