Welcome to Kindergarten

first day of school
  • The State of Washington funds full-day kindergarten at all elementary schools within Everett Public Schools.

    The instructional day is 6 hours 15 minutes and provides time for extended learning experiences.

    All Everett kindergarten programs participate in WaKIDS: Washington Kindergarten Inventory of Developing Skills. WaKIDS is a process for welcoming students and their families to kindergarten, and for assessing children's strengths and development.  During the first three days of the school year, each family - children and parents/guardians - participates in a Family Connection conference with the teacher.  The meeting provides time for the teacher to get to know the student and family as they begin the kindergarten year.

    Kindergarten enrollment for next school year opens on the first Monday of March.

    Visit the Schools Transfers page if your student will attend a school not designated for your resident address.
