Intent to Return Forms and Sibling/Staff Enrollment, 2020-21

Last Monday, all current CNH families were emailed a Google form to complete, indicating whether or not their child/ren will be returning to CNH next school year, 2020-21.  (Thank you to those of you who submitted 151 responses already!) We ask for this information this time every year in order to determine how many seats we will have available when we conduct our enrollment lottery in February.  The forms will be due no later than Monday, January 27.  Please submit one form per child you have enrolled at CNH.  The form is not designed for information for more than one student. If you do not have online access, hard copies will be available at the front desk.  If you haven’t submitted yours, please do as soon as possible:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdsTu4iAkCwsYV3mU7AofQXuHQR5-h40IUp-9Xwiv3LS_W6eg/viewform?usp=sf_link

January 27 is also the deadline for submission of 2020-21 enrollment applications for children of staff and siblings of current students.  Applications are available in the office or on our website.   You can submit them to the office directly or by scanning and emailing to applications@cityneighborshamilton.org.

Any questions about enrollment for 2020-21?  Contact Stephanie at sking@cityneighborshamilton.org.
