Where do I go to enroll?

This will open officially on January 17 for Fall registration. We hope to have your completed enrollment packets returned by February 23, 2017.

What is the minimum age for enrollment in school?
Only children who reach the age of five on or before September 1 of the school year are eligible for enrollment in Kindergarten. This also applies to first grade, but the age of six, correspondingly.
The Kindergarten Readiness Act, a historic reform to kindergarten education, gives Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District (PYLUSD) an opportunity to ensure that more children each year are better prepared to succeed in kindergarten and beyond. PYLUSD believes that school readiness is more than just reading, writing, and arithmetic. This legislation enables PYLUSD to create a Transitional Kindergarten program (“Preppy K”) to support the development and achievement of our youngest learners. For further information regarding this transitional program, please visit the district’s website at http://www.pylusd.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=212696&type=d
A child is automatically eligible for only Preppy K if his or her 5th birthday occurs between September 2nd and December 2nd. Preppy K serves as a bridge between preschool and kindergarten and ensures that developmentally younger children are ready for kindergarten and beyond. Children may also apply for enrollment if their fifth birthday is on or before March 31. Upon parent request, children with earlier birthdays may attend Preppy K on a space available basis. Preppy K is part of the public school system and is free to participating students.
May I enroll my child in a school other than the neighborhood school?
Street name and number determine assigned neighborhood attendance areas. The majority of our students in our district attend their neighborhood school. We do have an Open Enrollment Policy at our district where students residing in (and out of) PYLUSD may elect to attend another school within the District, dependent upon school enrollment numbers. If you desire your child to go to another school other than your neighborhood school, refer to our district’s web site: http://www.pylusd.org/cwa or with our Student Services Office, located at our district office. Their phone # is 714 985-8670. Be sure to note the designated CHOICE transfer time periods.
What are the school’s starting and ending times?
Currently, Lakeview’s regular school hours for grades 1 – 5 ~ 7:50 a.m. – 2:15 p.m. Mon/Tues/Thurs/Fri & 7:50 a.m. – 1:15 p.m. every Wednesday (with six additional minimum days throughout the school year with students being released at 12:45 p.m.)
Peppy K/Kindergarten Early Cubs and Late Cubs: 7:50 a.m. – 11:10 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. – 12:50 p.m. respectively, with Late Cubs coming to Early Cubs schedule seven times during the year.
The times for the Kindergarten classes are as above to allow a smaller ratio of students per teacher during the core academic time such as Language Arts and Mathematics.
Do you provide Child Care at Lakeview?
You may call Lakeview Child Care directly by calling 714 986-7190, option 6. Although Child Care (Expanded Learning) is housed at school sites, the site does not operate the program. This is done through our district’s Expanded Learning program.

- A language other than English is frequently spoken in your home

May I enroll in Summer School prior to enrolling for the regular school year?
At this time, our Summer School program is only for students that have been identified with an appropriate IEP.
Over the last few years, our district has created an enrichment summer school for students without an IEP: The PYLUSD Summer Enrichment Program is an exciting opportunity for students Preppy K through 7th grade to take fun and creative exploratory classes during the summer. Registration is done online through our district’s website. Look for more information in spring time. Enrollment is limited. Keeping in mind the limited enrollment and low cost, the classes are available on a first-come, first-served basis ~ courses are closed to additional registrants as they fill.
Our principal will be conducting school tours for new enrollees. The dates for these are as listed (but subject to change):
January 24, 2017
February 28, 2017
March 21, 2017
Please call the school office to sign up for the tours and to get current information and the times of the tours.
When does school start?
We are on a traditional school calendar with school starting Tuesday, August 29, 2017. A calendar of the major holidays will be posted on our district’s website. We also post online on our school’s website our monthly calendars of special school events and important dates.
Elementary Program: Elementary students who are identified as gifted may be served either in their home schools or through magnet programs. In either case, students receive qualitatively differentiated instruction. This may be provided through the enrichment strands of the language arts and mathematics programs, special projects, variations on class assignments or accelerated instruction. Typically, GATE students who remain in their home schools are grouped in clusters to meet their instructional needs. Students who opt to attend the magnet programs are assigned to classrooms where all students qualify for the GATE program. Golden Elementary School houses the magnet program for Lakeview. Further information can be viewed at http://www.pylusd.org/gate
What Special Education Programs are provided?
If your child has been in an RSP, SDC, or Speech class or on a 504 plan, please bring his/her current IEP and Assessments with you to enrollment.
