    Enrollment Requirements and Recommendations

    What you need to register:

    • Your child’s birth certificate
    • Proof of your address (rental agreement, purchase agreement, or utility bill)
    • Your child’s immunization records for measles, mumps, rubella, polio, diphtheria, whooping cough, tetanus, hepatitis B, and varicella (chickenpox)


    • Two emergency contacts, including addresses and phone numbers
    • Physician, dentist, and child care addresses and phone numbers

    If your child has a life-threatening condition, including allergies, asthma, diabetes and seizure disorders, you will need to meet with the school nurse before the first day of school or any of the kindergarten readiness programs. The nurse will confirm all medications, medical supplies and healthcare provider orders are in place.

    Kindergarten Readiness Programs

    Highline offers unique programs for incoming kindergarten students to help them be “ready for kindergarten” in the fall. These programs include Pre-K Play and LearnKindergarten Jump Start, and WaKIDS. The programs are free for registered kindergarten students. For more information, contact Elisa Turner at (206) 631-3190.

    Kindergarten Readiness Activities 

    We also encourage our families to work with their students at home. To help, we've created the Kindergarten Readiness Guidelines. These guidelines are a parent resource designed to help families prepare children for kindergarten. This document does not need to be completed and turned in at the school, but rather is for parents to keep as a guide to kindergarten readiness. If you have questions about the document, please contact Anne Arnold. View the guidelines in other languages.
