Grace B. Luhrs University Elementary School Enrollment Procedures
Parents/Guardians are encouraged to obtain information about Grace B. Luhrs University Elementary School (GBLUES) in order to determine whether to apply for choice enrollment.
Parents/guardians of students entering kindergarten must complete the district registration process.
Parents/guardians seeking to enroll children in GBLUES must reside in the Shippensburg Area School District and their children must be eligible for enrollment pursuant to SASD Policy (200 and 202) by May 1.
Kindergarten applicants who are legally identified as a sibling of a student currently enrolled in GBLUES, living at the same residence, and who will be attending at the same time as the currently enrolled GBLUES student, will be enrolled first in kindergarten, and subsequently before any student on a waiting list. Parents will still need to complete a Lottery Registration Application in order for our enrollment numbers to be accurate when conducting the lottery. Should two or more applications for interest for grades 1-4 be submitted, there will be a lottery for those interested in attending GBLUES should no open slots be available.
Students who do not have a sibling in GBLUES are eligible for enrollment by participating in a lottery. Enrollment of students is based on an open/random lottery.
This year, the lottery for any open slots for the 2022-2023 school year took place on May 4, 2022 and all those in the lottery will be notified.
