Grade TK-5 ENROLLMENT for Fall 2023 is open now through May 5, 2023 (for students that will be NEW to the District)! Use the 

 LTUSD Elementary Transportation Zone Map to find your school; this is the school you should enroll for in the system. This is your residence address, not daycare/grandparents, etc.  (we will be collecting proof of residency upon acceptance.)

If you are brand-new to LTUSD, complete the online enrollment ( and choose 23/24 Pre-Enrollment. If you wish to transfer from one of our other District schools for Fall 2023, submit the Open Enrollment form under Forms on our website (email to [email protected]).


If you are new to our LTUSD and live outside of our school boundary but wish to apply here, you need to enroll online for your school of residence first, then complete the Open Enrollment form mentioned above.  If you do get admitted to a school outside your boundary, LTUSD only provides very limited transportation.  As well, our numbers will be analyzed each year for those that live out of bounds and there is the possibility you could be "bumped" by someone that lives in our zone.

Please do not bring any paperwork to the school until we contact you.  If interested, we will be scheduling tours for new families by appointment.  Please email [email protected]  request a tour.

If you currently have students at our school, you do not need to do anything at this time.  


  1. Students/Families wishing to attend their transportation zoned school will have first enrollment priority.  (see map link above)

  2. Students/Families that want to continue in their current school OUTSIDE of their transportation zone, will be next on the priority list.

  3. Students/Families requesting a school outside of their transportation zone, will be admitted based on space available.  A lottery will be used if necessary. 

*We will strive to keep families with multiple children in the same school.
