Sunnyland Elementary

"The Scoop"

A Note from the Principal

Greetings Sunnyland families,

As we head into spring, we have a lot of exciting things coming our way. One of those is the start of construction for our new school. We are on track to open fall of 2022! In preparation for groundbreaking, we are moving four of our portables from their current location to the north end of our school on E. Illinois. One of the impacts of that move will be a reduction in parking spaces on E. Illinois. Additionally, once construction is under way we will have added traffic to and from Sunnyland with construction deliveries, etc.

I’m sure you all recognize the level of congestion that we have, especially on King St, during drop off and pick up. With construction beginning we can expect the congestion to increase. As that happens, I ask that we all please be extra aware of our Sunnyland neighbors. They need to be able to enter and exit their driveways at any time of day. Thank you for not parking on King Street. If you are in the driving lane on King St, as you progress forward please watch and wait, and do not block any driveways. If there is a parked car, instead of pulling along side the car, wait until the line has moved far enough forward for you to drive around the car. Last week our bus was stuck and unable to reach Sunnyland because King St was blocked with family traffic.

I know that many of you are already doing all of these things, and if a driveway does get blocked, I assume that it is an accident – we are all human! I appreciate the extra level of awareness and consideration for our neighbors and for each other during these times.

Thank you.



Important Dates to Remember

Kindergarten registration is open for fall 2021

Registration for kindergarten has begun in Bellingham Public Schools. All children who will be 5 before Sept. 1, 2021 can be registered for kindergarten. Families can register their kindergartner online through the link on our kindergarten webpage. Registering now helps us hire staff, balance our classes, connect with families and ready our schools to welcome our kindergartners.

All children who are currently enrolled in Promise K will automatically be enrolled in kindergarten for the fall and do not need to re-register.

We plan to start in-person learning at every elementary school this fall with strong safety protocols in place. We will be ready to support our early learners and welcome the class of 2034 to our schools.

Kindergarten open house videos and virtual tours will be posted on school websites and sent to registered kindergarten families in May.

To find out more about attendance areas, registration and childhood immunization schedules, please visit or contact our elementary schools directly. And thanks in advance for letting a friend or neighbor with a future kindergartner know the registration window is open and ready for them!
