OLW School Registration Guidelines: 2021-2022 School Year

Posted on January 5, 2021 by Published by

Our Lady of the Wayside School is dedicated to enriching our students’ minds, fostering
a deep and meaningful faith in each child, and expanding their talents.

If you are considering OLW for your child for next year, we are happy to talk with you, send you information, or schedule a tour. You can find out more about OLW from the website or by following our social media channels. A $150 non-refundable registration fee is required for all students at the time of registration. Without the registration fee, the student will not be put on any class list. The registration fee is only refundable if you move out of the school district or do not secure a spot in our school.

Parents registering new students to OLW School will need to bring to registration:

  • a LEGAL birth certificate (not the hospital copy), and
  • a baptismal certificate (even if baptized at OLW) Originals will be returned after copies are made in the office.

Registration for parishioners and other new families will be accepted up to and including Catholic Schools Week. Since class size is limited, the following order will be considered when taking registrations:

  1. Currently enrolled OLW School students
  2. Brothers or sisters of currently enrolled OLW students
  3. Children of OLW Parishioners registered before December 1, 2020
  4. Children of Catholic families registered at parishes other than OLW
  5. Children of non-Catholic families

January 4 – 22:  Early Childhood Enrollment for current OLW preschoolers and siblings**
January 4 – Feb 5:  Open enrollment for families thru Catholic Schools Week
February 9:  Registrations filled on a first-come, first-served basis

** The school office will be open on Mon – Thurs from 8am-12pm during the planned remote learning period of January 4-15.

Tours can be conducted Mon – Thurs at 3:30, 4:00 or 4:30pm starting on Jan 11
