Waiting ListMASCOT currently has a waiting list.  Families may be added to the waiting list at any time during the year by completing the waiting list form and returning the completed form either by email, fax or walk-in.  Enrollment  priority is given to:

  • Currently enrolled families for upcoming year
  • Siblings of currently enrolled families

Students are placed on the waiting list based on the date the waiting list form was received.  We offer spaces as they become available in the appropriate age-group.  To better serve the Mills community, the following is practiced:

  • The first time a family declines a spot (or fails to call back), the waiting list date will be changed from the date of application to the date of the decline or nonresponse.
  • The second time a family declines a spot (or fails to call back), the children will be removed from the waiting list.  A new form would need to be submitted to be placed back on the waiting list.
