FORT MYERS, Fla. — UPDATE 1/18/22: As of Tuesday morning the main open enrollment website is active and accepting submissions. Remember that you still need a PIN number, which was mailed to eligible parents, to apply. Open enrollment ends Feb. 25.

Our original reporting continues below:

Parents in the Lee County School system who were expecting to make enrollment changes for their 5th through 8th grade students are being met with frustration Monday morning.

Today is supposed to be the day for the school system's online open enrollment, but as of 8:30 a.m. the entire district website is displaying a server error message.

When functional, the website will allow parents to select the campus of choice for their children.

As part of the annual open enrollment period, the district sent PIN numbers to eligible families last week.

Lee County Schools officials released the following statement:

We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with our website and are trying to resolve the issue. We will let you know as soon as the site is available again.

For families participating in open enrollment with the PIN number provided last week, you can use this link to register your school choices: https://studentassignment.leeschools.net/ Please remember that due to the enrollment lottery system there is no advantage to turning in your choices early. All requests are processed at the same time.

We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
