Dear Van Gogh Staff and Parents,

Van Gogh Charter
Lottery Rules, Regulations, Procedures and Application
2017-18 School Year
Applications are available from April 3 – April 28, 2017
Applications are due in the Front Office on Friday, April 28, 2017 before 4:00 p.m.
Van Gogh Charter cannot and will not be held responsible for any lost, delayed, misdirected, mutilated, indecipherable, or illegible lottery applications regardless of whether caused by the reason of a force of nature, the conduct of any Van Gogh personnel, of the U.S. Postal Service.
Lottery applicants are strongly encouraged to hand-deliver their completed applications to the front office during its normal business hours (Monday-Friday 7:30-4:00 p.m.).
On the day of the lottery drawing a priority waiting list will be established by grade level. Being on the list does not guarantee admittance to Van Gogh Charter. The number of available seats in each grade level may not be determined until after the start of school. Once the number of seats is determined, enrollment offers will be made.
NOT EVERY GRADE LEVEL MAY HAVE AVAILABLE SEATS.
Those selected will be notified by phone and email. Offers must be accepted within three days and the enrollment packet must be returned within two weeks of the phone call in order to secure enrollment in Van Gogh Charter.
The lottery drawing will be held on:
Wednesday, May 31, 2017
Van Gogh Auditorium
Families will be able to observe the lottery in person, but do not need to be present to be placed on the list
CALENDAR - SECOND SEMESTER
A HUGE THANK YOU !
Van Gogh expresses a HUGE THANKS to:
The Patriot Oil Community Benefit Trust Fund for providing Music Scholarships and their continued support for our computer lab and our technological needs.
The Granada Hills North Neighborhood Council for their generous contribution for library books and physical education equipment!
Councilman Mitch Englander's office for his generous contribution to our school. Funds will support our students in a variety of ways.
Calling All Volunteers!!!
Our school needs YOUR HELP! Volunteers are needed for our MORNING DROP-OFF VALET. Student safety is a priority, and the more support we have, the safer our students will be. Please see the main office to help.
LOST AND FOUND
Please label your student's jackets, backpacks, and lunch boxes with their name. This will help ensure that lost items may be found. Our collection of unclaimed items grows rapidly and is donated to charity at the end of each month.
Please support us......Due to students with severe peanut allergies, we request that snacks and lunches stay PEANUT FREE!
We would appreciate your support in avoiding sending foods that contain peanuts or any other form of tree nuts, such as sandwich crackers filled with peanut butter, granola bars, and trail mix.
Some healthy & nutritional alternatives include: ham, roast beef, tuna, egg salad, cream cheese and jelly sandwiches, hard-boiled eggs, fruit salad, yogurt & fruit, fruit rollups, apples with caramel, hummus, celery & carrot sticks, animal crackers, popcorn, pudding or Jell-o, and Rice Krispie Treats. Thank you for your cooperation!
