The lottery will be held on May 4, 2020. Families will be notified by e-mail of their child's placement or wait list status no later than May 22, 2020. With the exception of applications for Pittsburgh Montessori, if you have not already uploaded the following documents during the enrollment process, a current physical exam (including lead and hemoglobin test results) and a current dental record, these documents will be required to be submitted within 30 days of notification.

Children not accepted in the lottery will be placed on a waiting list and will be contacted by the Early Childhood Program as space becomes available.
