Welcome to Puyallup School District 2017-2018 Kindergarten Registration
Kindergarten online enrollment registration begins on January 17th for students who will enter the district for the first time in fall 2017. Parents are able to use the new Online Enrollment system to register their incoming kindergartner. Beginning on March 1, 2017 - paper copies are also available at all our schools for parents who do not have access to a computer.
We are happy to welcome your child to kindergarten and share your desire that this first school experience is a happy and successful one!
Parents of all students entering kindergarten should register at their neighborhood school. If you plan on enrolling at the school near your daycare center, you will also need to complete a Request for Intra-District Transfer or Non-Resident Waiver application. These are available at each elementary school and on the Registration and Enrollment page of this website. Elementary transfer requests for the next school year will not be accepted before February 14 (applications submitted before this time will be automatically denied). Parents will be notified of acceptance or denial of the application by April 15. All Transfer Requests must be approved before being allowed to register at your requested school. Waivers to schools other than your attendance area school will be granted on a space-available basis and must be approved before you can register.
On March 28th and May 16th – parents that are needing to bring in required documents that were unable to attach to the online enrollment form can bring them in to their home school from 4:00-5:00 p.m. Parents are also able to turn in these documents during regular registration hours at their home school. These evening events are not intended to be for registration.
Three Parent Information Meetings are scheduled in February 2017. Click here for the details. We look forward to meeting you!
