News and Events

Do you have a new Kindergartener starting next year?

Seattle Public Schools will hold a series of EARLY kindergarten enrollment events at several area sites.  If you will have a NEW kindergartener entering school September 2015, please attend one of these events!  You will also be able to enroll for the August 2015 Jump Start program.

Jump Start in a week-long, half day program to let entering kindergarteners meet teachers, see the school, and experience being in a school setting rather than home or play-based pre-school.  The Seattle Public School District has found that this program helps new students transition into full-day kindergarten more successfully than those who do not attend.  There is no cost to this program, but students must be pre-enrolled.

Early enrollment in kindergarten also helps ensure students will be in school starting the very first day.  This enforces the value of school, and helps the student identify from the first day the group which she or he will be an active part.

You may attend ANY enrollment session anywhere in Sseattle that is convenient to you. You will need to bring with you the following:

Child's birth certificate or passport
Certificate of Immunization (vaccination record)
2 documents, such as rent or utility bills, showing current address and parent's name and dated within the 8 weeks prior to the session you attend.  You may use a letter of Transitional Housing.
Photo ID for the parent or gardian
SPS admission form (get at an event or download at www.seattleschools.org/enrollment)

DROP OFF time is 8:15 AM, Even on rainy days!

Please do not drop your children off at school before 8:15 AM.  There is no adult supervision before then and we have a number of students who are wandering the halls and playing in the building before teachers arrive for work.

On Rainy Day Mornings

 

We will call rainy day morning at 8:15 if there is heavy rain, thunder, or lightning. If it is a light drizzle, we will have outdoor recess so make sure your child dresses appropriately with rain gear. If the office staff calls rainy day at 8:15, there will be supervision in the following areas:

  • Grades 4/5 in the gym
  • Grades 2/3 in the library
  • Grades K/1 in the lunchroom
