    Do you or someone you know have an incoming kindergartener? Don’t forget to register your kindergartener now! Early registration helps the district predict staffing for the new year, and ensures you will get all applicable kindergarten information coming from the school in the spring. 

    If your child is not planning to attend Montlake in the fall and you live in Montlake's boundaries, please contact the office at 252-3300. 

    June 8th: Popsicles at the Playground

    August 20-24th: Jumpstart

    Everything you need to know about Jumpstart can be found at the District Jumpstart program webpage. Registration required. 

    Jump Start is a FREE week-long experience for Kindergartners to learn about school. Children will become familiar with their new school building, staff, typical school day activities and practices.  Other key aspects to know:

    • Jump Start runs from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. each morning for one week

    • A parent/guardian meeting with the school principal is scheduled during the week

    • Bilingual staff will assist children who are English-language learners

    • Extra support is offered for children with special needs 

    • No transportation provided, so families need to drop off and pick up children each day. See LAUNCH childcare program in Resources section for help with drop off/pickup.
