Kindergarten Registration for the 2017-2018 School Year

The Issaquah School District offers Full Day Kindergarten at no cost for all students. A half day, morning kindergarten option will still be available for families. Half day kindergarten students may still ride the bus in the morning. However, parents or guardians will be responsible for picking their child up at the end of the three-hour, half day morning session. Kindergarten registration begins in February and ends March 10th. Registration takes place at your neighborhood school. For more information about Full Day and Half Day Kindergarten, visit our Kindergarten FAQ below.
