Please be aware that due to high enrollment, the following schools WILL NOT be accepting new transfer requests for the 21-22 school year: Briarwood, Brookridge, Corinth. If an incoming kindergarten student has a sibling currently on transfer to one of these three schools, contact the school principal for consideration.
