Area public and private schools are trying to attract new students as the open enrollment period began this last Monday. Open enrollment in Wisconsin is available to all students enrolled in kindergarten through 12th grade. Marc Vandenhouten, principal for St. Mary’s Elementary School in Luxemburg and Holy Trinity in Casco, says all the Door and Kewaunee County schools offer great opportunities for students. He adds that parents can always change their minds up until the next school year begins.
Open enrollment, which has been available since 1998 in the state, ends on April 30. Parents can apply for their child's open enrollment online or by visiting the schools directly and filling out the appropriate paperwork.
