    Choosing a different school
    If you are interested in having your child attend kindergarten at a school that is outside of your designated neighborhood (residence) school attendance area, please view the School Transfer Information Page, or call 425-385-4070.

    Please note:
    • Notification of school transfer approval or denial may not come until the end of August, just before school begins.   
    • Parents must provide transportation for kindergarten programs outside their neighborhood school area.
    • Due to high enrollment, many elementary schools are closed to school transfers. Check the list of schools closed to transfer for the most current list of schools that are accepting transfer request submissions.

    To request a school transfer for kindergarten:

    1. Enroll your child for kindergarten at your neighborhood school or via Online Enrollment.
    2. Submit an online school transfer request for the school you are requesting to attend.
