Kindergarten registration for the 2014-2015 school year begins on Monday, March 3, at the district's elementary schools. The district's kindergarten program includes a strong emphasis on the development of academic skills. In addition, we provide children with the opportunity to explore, discover and experience the joy of learning.
Full-day kindergarten - The full-day kindergarten program is optional and provided on a limited, space-available basis. The core curriculum is the same as in our half-day kindergarten program. However, there is additional time for extension and enrichment activities. Students will attend class Monday through Friday according to the district's schedule.
The fee for the 2014-2015 school year will be $2,950. Several payment options are available to families. A $200 advance deposit and a completed registration packet must be received at the school no later than Wednesday, April 30, to hold the student’s place in the class. (Note: A full $200 refund will be given to those families whose children we are unable to accommodate into a full-time program due to class-size requirements.)
Half-day kindergarten - The half-day kindergarten program offers the same core curriculum as the full-day program. However, there is less time for extension and enrichment activities throughout the week. Students will attend class every Monday through Thursday in the morning or the afternoon. Kindergarten students attend class every other Friday depending on the district's schedule.
There is no fee for the half-day kindergarten program.
For more information on kindergarten registration, please contact the elementary school your child will attend. If you do not know which school your child will attend, please call our Transportation Department at (360) 563-3525.

We invite you to join us as National Teacher of the Year Jeff Charbonneau from Zillah, Washington shares how he approaches the challenges of teaching students in the 21st Century and what is at stake. He will share his ideas on innovation and how to not take “No” for an answer by asking “What it would it take for you to say ‘Yes’”? Please click here to complete the registration if you plan to attend this free community assembly on March 21.
Pottery, renewable energy, astronomy, robotics, aeronautical engineering and painting are just some of the many exciting topics students entering grades 1 through 8 can investigate in through the district’s summer program – the Science and Arts Academy.

Are you prepared for a winter that could be colder and/or more wet than normal? The Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management suggests that you should expect the worst and be prepared. Stock up on extra food, medicine and other high-demand consumables; keep gutters, drains and ditches free of leaves and debris; trim deadwood branches from trees and get yourself a good snow shovel.
Below are important district links and information to help you prepare. We encourage you to print out and familiarize yourself with this important information:
