Kindergarten Registration

2024-25 Incoming Kindergarten Registration 

It is an exciting time of year as the Issaquah School District begins to reach out to our community in preparation of welcoming the incoming Kindergarten at their neighborhood school. The Issaquah School District offers full day Kindergarten at no cost to all students. If you have a child who will be a kindergartener for the 2024-2025, please visit the ISD New Student Enrollment website. Students who are turning 5 years old by August 31, 2024, are eligible for enrollment for the 2024-2025 school year.

Schools plan to meet with incoming Kindergarten families in January 2024. Schools will share this information in their electronic bulletins and on their website. Connect with your neighborhood school for more details about that meeting. This meeting will prepare families to complete the online registration. Registration begins February 1, 2024. Please visit the ISD New Student Enrollment website to begin your incoming kindergartner's registration. Once the online portion is complete, you will work with your neighborhood school to completed the enrollment process. If you cannot access the online application, please call or visit your neighborhood school for assistance.

  • Please Note: Students in the Early Childhood Education (ECE) ProgramSLP Program, Early Childhood Education & Assistance Program (ECEAP), and those previously evaluated by Special Services (ex. Childfind) must still complete the online kindergarten enrollment process to register for kindergarten. Please start the process as though you are a new student to the Issaquah School District.
  • Students in Transitional Kindergarten (TK), do not need to complete the online kindergarten registration process to register. Your child will be automatically registered in our system to attend their neighborhood school when they start kindergarten in the fall.

School offices are open from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. to assist you. Please note for your convenience, arrival and dismissal times are very high traffic times for the school office. Picking up or submitting required documents at this time may result in longer wait times.

All incoming kindergartners are registering at their neighborhood school. The Issaquah School District doesn't allow for families to choose the school their students attend. Your neighborhood school is determined by your home address.

Don't know your neighborhood school? The ISD Transportation Department will be able to assist you in identifying your neighborhood school. Contact Transportation (email) or (phone) 425-837-6330.
