    Kindergarten Information

    LWSD offers free all-day kindergarten for all students
    All kindergarten classes are all day classes. The state of Washington requires that school districts provide the option of kindergarten part-day attendance. Parents/guardians interested in part-day attendance for their child should contact their principal. Mid-day transportation will not be available.

    Children younger than five may qualify to enter kindergarten early
    Some students do not meet the state age guidelines for kindergarten but they may still be highly capable and ready for school. The Kindergarten Early Entrance process uses a formal and informal assessment to determine if your child meets or exceeds specific criteria in the areas of mental ability, gross motor skills, fine motor skills, auditory discrimination, visual discrimination, and emotional/social development. Parents who are interested in this option for their child should follow the instructions for early kindergarten entrance.

    Emerson K-12 is a parent partnership program that partners with families to educate children under the auspices and with the support of the LWSD.
