Open Enrollment Application Period
Parents must complete online applications during the time period between midnight February 3, 2014 until 4 p.m. April 30, 2014. For those without internet access, forms are available in the district/elementary office; however, online applications are encouraged and preferred. Late applications will not be accepted for any reason. Applications can be turned in to the district office. If your child is already attending the School District of Thorp under open enrollment, you only need to reapply if they are changing from elementary school to middle school or middle school to high school. If your child is currently attending the District under a Tuition Waver, you will need to submit an application for open enrollment if you wish for your child to attend the School District of Thorp under open enrollment for 2014-15 school year. For questions regarding open enrollment, please contact Renee Wagner 715-669-5548, ext 105.
