If you have a child that will be entering Kindergarten or High School next year, it's time to start thinking about the school request process for the 2018/19 school year. Minneapolis Public Schools school request lottery opens November 15, and the deadline is February 3, 2018. All students entering kindergarten, middle school (unless at a K-8) and high school will need to complete the school request process. If you or someone you know is interested in touring Lake Harriet Community School (LHCS) please sign up for one of our scheduled tours. In an effort to cause as little distraction in the classrooms as possible, we cannot accommodate drop in tours. Visit our school website to sign-up for a tour.  Lake Harriet has experienced substantial waiting lists for those students out of the attendance area or trying to enter after the Kindergarten year.  To help you better understand the school request and placement process, please follow the link to the Minneapolis Public Schools Website - School Placement Process at  If you are unsure of your school area zone, please follow the link to Minneapolis Public Schools Website - School Attendance Zone Map. If you have questions about school request or enrollment, contact MPS Student Placement Services at 612-668-1840.
