Kindergarten Jumpstart Parent Information

Kindergarten Jumpstart is a week long education experience scheduled for August 17, 2020 - August 21, 2020. All registered kindergartners must attend Jumpstart to be prepared for their first year of school.

There will be a Parent Informational Meeting on Monday, August 17, 2020 at 9:30am via Zoom Video Conference. It is critical that every parent or guardian attend this meeting. You will meet our Kindergarten staff, be able to ask questions, and get important information about school and more.  

Every enrolled kindergarten student with a completed registration is automatically enrolled in Kindergarten Jumpstart. This year, it will be online. As we hear more direction from Washington State leaders and Highline Public School District, we will communicate what the school year will look like when school begins in September. The first day of school for grades first through fifth is scheduled for Thursday, September 3, 2020. The first day of school for all Kindergartners is scheduled for Tuesday, September 8, 2020. We will confirm these dates as it gets closer to September. 

We will be emailing more information about computer device pick up day for families who do not have a device, important things you need to know about our school, and the link to the Parent Informational Meeting video call on Zoom. Look for this email information by August 10th. Please contact the office if you have any questions about registrations/enrollment by emailing
