As you might imagine, we encounter a variety of interesting situations when processing thousands of applications each year. Our staff recently voted that the most unique scenario this previous quarter was a single-page paper application received in the mail... for the 2008-2009 school year! The application was so old, we didn't recognize it at first! The applicant was actually applying for the upcoming school year and was given an old application by the school to fill out. As you can imagine, a lot has changed since 2008 with the information we request of parents.
While this is rare, we received a high number of applications in 2019 for the previous three school years because those were the applications the schools had on hand and provided to the parents. Unless they are for the 2019-2020 school year, we kindly ask that you throw out all paper applications you currently have sitting around. Encourage your parents to apply online. Though some parents are intimidated, the process is simple. It is much more time efficient, and it will also save them a few extra dollars!
If need be, the newest CFS Application forms can be easily downloaded using the "Download Forms" tab from the School Admin Portal.
