Lake Washington School District holds an open enrollment period once each year for parents who want their children to attend a school other than their neighborhood school. Parents may apply between February 1-28 for a change to the school assignment for the 2019-20 school year for their student in grades 1-12.

As you may be aware, on January 25, Governor Inslee declared a public health state of emergency after reports of 31 confirmed cases of measles were identified in the state. We currently do not have any cases of measles in Lake Washington School District. 



    Kindergarten Registration begins February 7

    Register at your neighborhood school

    Redmond, Wash. – If you live in Lake Washington School District (LWSD) and your child will be five years old on or before August 31, 2019, it is time to register them for Kindergarten. Registration takes place at your neighborhood school.

    Registration details
    Parents will be able to register their children for Kindergarten beginning February 7 from 1 p.m. – 7 p.m. and 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.
