Parents/guardians are permitted to sign their children up for a maximum of two (2) classes per child.
1) The lottery system (see below) will be implemented in the same manner as it has been in the past. However, parents/guardians will now only be able to register their child (or children) for two (2) classes at a time.
2) To allow registration to move at a faster pace and be completed more quickly, parents/guardians must have their registration form fully filled out when their lottery number is called. If a parent/guardian does not have a registration form fully completed when their lottery number is called, their place in line will be skipped until they have completed the form. Registration forms will available onsite, however it is strongly encouraged that parents/guardians have the necessary forms completed before attending registration. This has been implemented to serve in the best interests of all parents/guardians.
Please note: Class fees/payments must be paid by check or money order made payable to POB CSD 4th R. Cash or credit cards are not accepted. Payment must be made upon registration. Once registration is accepted, NO REFUNDS can be given.
How the lottery works: Those parents/guardians who arrive in the lobby of POB Middle School prior to the designated registration start time will be required to submit their name for a lottery. Those people who have submitted their name by the DESIGNATED registration time will draw a random number. (Example: If there are 30 names, there will be 30 numbers placed in the lottery.) There is no first come, first served policy. Names will not be taken until 15 minutes prior to the designated registration start time.
Parents wishing to sign their child up for classes in a building different than the one the child attends must attend registration for the building in which the particular class is scheduled. (Example: If a parent is registering their child for a class at Parkway and a class at Pasadena, they must show up both nights.)
Parents/guardians attending registration will be notified if a class gets closed as soon as possible. Please note that in the event that a class has insufficient registration, parents will be notified of its cancellation by phone.
Parents/guardians must sign up their own children. If a parent is unable to attend the registration they may designate someone else to register their child only if that person is not registering another child. A parent may not sign up their own child or children along with a child from another family. Siblings may be registered together. The 4th R Program cannot guarantee placement in classes with friends/carpools.
