    This three-day opportunity offers a safe and welcoming introduction to elementary school for families and students, relieving many first-day anxieties (for students and their caregivers!).

    Students will become familiar with the school campus, the school staff, and their kindergarten peers before the start of school. Principals will also provide families with an opportunity to meet staff, discuss kindergarten readiness and receive educational support around helping their student transition to kindergarten.

    Bus transportation will be provided (if registered prior to the end of July) for families who need it or for those who want their student to practice riding the bus before the first day of school.

    Please RSVP to help with our planning and to make sure transportation is set up for your student if needed.

    We are looking forward to welcoming your kindergarten student to Ready for Kindergarten and a fantastic first year in elementary school. Welcome aboard!

    2023-24 Enrollment Packets

    Enrollment packets are available as fillable PDFs in English, Spanish, Russian and Ukrainian.

    Additional Items

    • Completed Enrollment Packet
    • Birth Certificate (official copy, not the keepsake provided by the hospital)
    • Proof of Immunization

    Due to overcrowding in Lake Stevens School District's schools, new enrollment for the 2023-24 school year is limited to those students who live within the school district boundaries. This means that new non-resident variances for students—including kindergarten—will not be approved.
