Beginning Feb. 7, parents with children who are 5 years old or will be by Aug. 31 will be able to register their children for kindergarten in the Lake Washington School District.

Registration takes place at residents’ neighborhood schools.

Parents will be able to register their children from 1-7 p.m. Feb. 7, continuing during regular school hours through the beginning of the 2019-20 school year. While registration will continue throughout the school year and summer, parents are highly encouraged to register students as soon as possible. Doing so helps ensure class sizes are balanced and adequate staff are hired in time for the new school year.

To register a child for kindergarten, parents should bring the following items:

  • Proof of residency (such as a purchase/rental agreement or utility bill).

  • Proof of the child’s birth date such as a birth certificate or passport.

  • Child’s health history, including current immunizations.

  • Emergency contact information.

Visit the kindergarten registration page of the LWSD website to watch a video and learn more about the registration process.

To determine your neighborhood school, check the district website, or call the district’s transportation office at 425-936-1120.
