Do you live in Shoreline or Lake Forest Park and have a child who will be 5 years old by August 31, 2020? If so, Kinderfest is the place for you!

Kinderfest is an opportunity for parents and guardians of incoming kindergartners to learn about the programs offered by the Shoreline School District. Join us on Saturday, Jan. 25 from 10am - 12pm at the Shoreline Center, 18560 1st Ave. NE, to receive information on Food Services, Transportation, Nurses, English Language Learners, Special Services, Highly Capable Program and PTA. Each elementary school will have representatives available to answer questions. Spanish, Amharic, Mandarin, Tigrinya and Korean interpreters will be available.

Presentations will begin at 10am including a message from our Superintendent, Dr. Rebecca Miner.


Limited, no-cost childcare will be available on-site for children who are over two-years-old and potty-trained. Please note that food will not be allowed in the childcare room due to possible allergies.

Kindergarten registration will begin on Tuesday, February 4th at your neighborhood school. Registration is not on a first-come, first-served basis. All students registered by the close of business on February 28th will be put in a drawing to fill Kindergarten spaces available at their neighborhood schools. Incoming kindergarten students who have a sibling at their neighborhood school will be given priority placement (at their neighborhood school) if registered prior to the close of business on February 28th. Those registering after February 28th will be added to their neighborhood school's wait list as they register.


In order to attend kindergarten in the fall, your child must be five years old by August 31, 2020 and reside in the cities of Shoreline or Lake Forest Park.
