It's almost time to register for school

 

August 12, 2015



School is just around the corner. The first day of school in the Mukilteo School District is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 2.

Students who are new to the Mukilteo School District must register at the school that serves their residence. If you are uncertain which school your child should attend, check the attendance boundaries at http://www.mukilteo.wednet.edu or call 425-356-1274.

If a student attended a Mukilteo school last year, has moved out of that school’s attendance area or out of the district, but wants to continue attending that school, his or her parents must complete an in-district transfer request or an out-of-district request in order to be considered as a continuing student at their school of choice.

Registration for classes will be as follows:

Elementary school

Elementary students are always anxious to see who their teacher will be for the coming year. The schools will mail that information to parents the week before school starts.

New students entering kindergarten through fifth grade can register at the school they will be attending in their neighborhood.

To register their child for school, parents or guardians should bring verification of their child’s birth date, proof of residence (such as a utility bill or lease agreement), the names and telephone numbers of emergency contacts and an up-to-date immunization record.
