Mercer Island kindergarten registration opens for upcoming school year

The Mercer Island School District recently made the announcement on its website.

Kindergarten registration is now open for the 2020-2021 school year, the Mercer Island School District (MISD) has announced on its website.

To register, go to the school district’s enrollment site at https://bit.ly/2AuQAZf. Families who have children currently enrolled can log in at Skyward Family Access site at www2.nwrdc.wa-k12.net.

Parents are required to read the Establishing and Verifying Residency Form (3120 F1) before enrolling, and have necessary documents ready to upload.

These documents include a copy of an official birth certificate or passport, two proofs of residency and a completed immunization certificate. If applicable, restraining orders and custody/court orders are also required for submission.

The MISD is encouraging families to enroll as soon as possible. By forecasting class sizes, the district is better able to plan for staffing needs.

To register for the coming school year, a student must be 5 years old by Aug. 31.

Elementary students are required to enroll in their home schools. A boundary map, as well as an e-Link resource, can be used by families wanting to verify their student’s school. These tools can also be used to identify the nearest bus-stop location.

Contact the transportation department by email at julie.naylor@mercerislandschools.org or by phone at 206-236-3335 for boundary-related questions. Visit mercerislandschools.org for immunization requirements.
