(When schools are closed in the summer, contact the District Office at 425-831-8000.)Kindergarten Program:Starting January 15, 2019, families are invited to begin enrolling students in Kindergarten for the 2019-20 school year using the Online Enrollment process (described above). In addition, all Snoqualmie Valley elementary schools will host a Kindergarten Orientation event on Tuesday, March 5, 2019, at 6-7:30 p.m., which parents are encouraged to attend. Families will be able to meet Kindergarten teachers, schedule a "screener" assessment, and ask questions.When registering for Kindergarten, students will automatically be placed in the full-day program. While the full-day program is recommended for students, parents may contact their school to request a half-day program if preferred.
Attendance BoundariesStudents should live within the attendance boundary of a school in order to enroll. To verify which school your student will attend, based on your home address, visit the District Maps webpage. (Check out the transportation tool called E-Link which helps families verify their student's school and the school bus stop location nearest to their home address.) Contact the Transportation Department at Transoffice@svsd410.org or call 425-831-8020, for questions.
- Full-Day Kindergarten: As a district, Full-Day Kindergarten is offered to all students free-of-charge to parents. All students who turn five years of age by August 31 are eligible for the state-funded full-day program. The Snoqualmie Valley School District believes in the Full-Day Kindergarten model as a holistic approach that will set students up for success in school and their future endeavors.
- Half-Day Kindergarten: In addition, a morning Half-Day Kindergarten is available for families who prefer this option. Parents who are in a position to offer their child support at home and complement what their child experiences during the half day they attend kindergarten are best suited for this option. Half-day students will be placed in a full-day kindergarten classroom at their home school in the morning, and go home midway through the day. Parents who opt to enroll their students in the AM half-day program versus the full-day program will undertake the responsibility of supplementing their child’s academic and social-emotional experiences in order to best prepare him/her for their transition to 1st grade. Kindergarten teachers will work to meet each child’s individual needs during the time they are present at school, however, the afternoon instructional time and subject matter that half-day students miss will become the responsibility of the parent. Parents who choose the half-day program will need to transport their student home mid-day.
If a student in the District wants to attend a school outside of their attendance boundary, a request for an in-district transfer must be submitted for consideration each year during the "Open Enrollment" period. Space must be available at the receiving school. For more information about transfer requests, contact the District Office.Immunization RequirementsWashington State Law RCW28A.210.080 requires school age children to receive specific immunizations in order to attend school. Proof of immunizations from a family physician or local health department is required. The parent/guardian needs to transfer this information to a Certificate of Immunization (CIS) form and sign the certificate to verify its accuracy. See the state Immunization Requirements.
Consent for Exchange of Information
If a student is transferring from another school, the parent or guardian must give their consent to transfer records from the student’s previous school. Parents will need the name, address, and phone number of the previous school to upload into the application.
Transcript or Academic History
Students transferring from another school should have their academic records to upload. The application will also ask if the student has been in any special programs in their previous school.
