Children whose date of birth is within 40 days of this date may be considered for admission at the principal's discretion, subject to meeting any or all of the following additional requirements:
• For students who may not meet the Hillel Community Day School guidelines, a pre-admission test may be required, at the discretion of the principal.
• Submitting recommendations from the child's pre-school teachers, if applicable, and/or consultation between appropriate Hillel Community Day School staff and the pre-school teachers.
