    Enrollment Requirements

    Kindergarten Registration      

          Parents of a student who will attend kindergarten may register their child at the elementary school in Eatonville School District.  Registration should take between 15 and 30 minutes.

          Students must be five (5) years old on or before August 31 of the year of enrollment in order to be eligible to attend kindergarten in the fall of that year.  To enroll a child in kindergarten, parents must present the following:

    • The child's certified birth certificate
    • The child's social security card
    • A parent's picture identification with the same name as listed on the child's birth certificate 
    • Proof of residence such as a utility bill, a land contract, etc. (A driver's license is not adequate proof of residence.)  
    • A health assessment report is recommended prior to Kindergarten attendance.

    Immunization Schedule 
          Washington state law RCW 28A.210.080 requires that all children show proof of immunization or certification of exemption to attend school. Students cannot start school without the required documentation.

    Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS) and Certificate of Exemption (COE) forms
          All students must have a completed certificate of immunization status (CIS) or certificate of exemption (COE) form on file in the school office. Parents/guardians must complete the form and turn it in to the school before the student can start school. Students will not be assigned to classes until the information has been turned in with the vaccines required for school attendance documented.

          Schedule your child's vaccination appointments well in advance of the new school year to ensure that your child has received all the vaccines required for school attendance.
