If you are the parent or guardian of an incoming kindergartner in the 2019-20 school year, or if you know someone who has a child entering Olympia schools as a kindergartner this fall, please share with them about this event and make sure they mark the new date — March 2 — on their calendar.

The annual event will be held from 10-11:30 a.m. at Capital High School, 2707 Conger Ave. N.W., Olympia. It begins at 10 a.m. with a welcome and presentation by Olympia School District Superintendent Patrick Murphy.

An information fair follows in the school Commons where parents/guardians can meet staff from elementary schools around the district. The event is also a chance to learn about registering for kindergarten, using Skyward Family Access (Student Information System), riding the bus, alternative kindergarten options, before- and after-school child care, and community partner services.

Kindergarten registration for the 2019-20 school year begins on March 4, 2019.
