Families urged to enroll now for kindergarten

Kindergarten enrollment is now underway for the 2018-19 school year in the Mercer Island School District. Families are asked to please not to delay completing their online registration packet.

“Although kindergarten doesn’t begin until September, it will assist the District greatly if families would enroll their children soon so that we can staff appropriately for the numbers of students registered,” said Assistant Superintendent Fred Rundle. “Given the shortage in the teacher job market, we want to be able to hire the very best candidates as early as possible!”

Children must be five years old by August 31, 2018 to enroll for the 2018-19 school year.

Elementary students will enroll in their home school. To verify which school your student will attend, based on your home address, links to the boundary map and transportation E-Link are online at mercerislandschools.org. Contact the Transportation Department at 206-236-3335 for questions about school boundaries.
