Mercer Island School District will begin accepting kindergarten registrations on Wednesday, January 20, 2016. For parents seeking information about the district’s kindergarten program and registration process, kindergarten information sessions will be held for each elementary school on Tuesday, January 19.

District staff will be present to answer questions, discuss educational programs available, and distribute registration packets. Families who are unable to attend this information night may pick up a registration packet at one of the schools or district office or visit the district website. Additionally, families uncertain about their home school attendance area can find more information by visiting the district website or by calling Mary Newcomer at 206-230-6336.

You may bring children if necessary but be advised that this is a parent-oriented event.

Elementary Visitations Days in January & May

Mercer Island School District’s three elementary schools will host elementary visitation days twice in 2016, on January 28 and May 13.

The visitation days are primarily for out-of district families thinking about moving to Mercer Island, or residents of Mercer Island considering enrolling their children in our school district. Visitation hours will be from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

The district’s fourth elementary school, Northwood, will open by the start of the 2016-17 school year. Because Northwood is still under construction, its visitation day is planned for June, 2016. It will not be open for tours during the designated visitation days.
