Kinder Registration for 20/21 school year:

Registration begins March 2, 2020 and continues the remainder of the school year. You can pick up a packet in the school office. In this case turning it in sooner is better than later, as those who wait until the next school year begins may find there is not room at their boundary school and will have to be placed at a different building with room. Please note students will not be able to start school unless they are "current" on their immunizations.

Changes to State Immunization Rules for Schools and Child Cares Effective August 1, 2020

The State Board of Health (SBOH) has approved changes to Chapter 246-105 of the Washington Administrative Code (WAC) concerning school and child care immunization policy. These rules apply to all public and private schools and licensed child care centers in Washington State.

The update to Chapter 246-105 WAC has three major focuses:

  • It now requires medically verified immunization records for school and child care entry.
  • It clarifies conditional status in regards to school and child care immunization requirements and implementation.
  • It changes the Tdap immunization requirement to 7th through 12th grades.
