    We did it! Thank you so much Syre Wildcats for once again stepping up and making 2018 a super successful food drive..... We not only met our 550 target, we smashed it and collected 649 boxes of cereal!! The Holiday Basket event was this past weekend and you helped to make hundreds of families within our community feel supported. Thanks again to everyone involved. Happy Holidays to you all....


    Date: Saturday, Jan. 26, 2019

    Time: 10 am to 12 am

    Location:  Shoreline Center, Shoreline Room (18560 1st Ave. NE)

    Kinderfest is a great opportunity for families with children starting kindergarten in the fall of 2019 to hear and learn about the programs offered by the Shoreline School District such as: Food Services, Transportation, Nurses, ELL/Special Services, Highly-Capable Program, & PTA.   Each elementary school in the Shoreline School District will be there for a meet and greet and to answer questions. Spanish, Amharic, Mandarin, Korean and Vietnamese interpreters will be available.

    Limited, no-cost childcare will be available on-site for children over 2 years old who are potty-trained  (sponsored by the Shoreline Children’s Center). Please note that food will not be allowed in the childcare room due to possible allergies.

    Kindergarten registration will begin on Monday, February 4, 2019 at your neighborhood school. In order to attend kindergarten in the fall, your child must be five (5) years old by August 31, 2019 and reside in the cities of Shoreline or Lake Forest Park.


    The District is adding text messaging functionality to our School Messenger mass notification system. Text messaging will not replace the use of phone calls or emails, but will supplement them in appropriate situations. This could range from simple reminders for school events to updates about emergency situations.  

    To sign up for text messaging please go to: https://www.shorelineschools.org/site/default.aspx?PageType=3&DomainID=4&ModuleInstanceID=26&ViewID=6446EE88-D30C-497E-9316-3F8874B3E108&RenderLoc=0&FlexDataID=20123&PageID=1
