Registration Forms and Procedures
Are you new to Tumwater School District? Have you moved to a new attendance area or different school district? We welcome you to our district and look forward to meeting you soon.
Registration/Enrollment Forms: You may download and print basic registration and emergency health forms forms (en espanol) (see your school's website for their complete registration packet). Home language survey forms are available in many languages. CLICK HERE to find the right form for your family. Hard copies of all forms are available at each school. If you need forms translated into another language, please contact the District Office at 360-709-7000.
Children who will be five-years old on or before August 31 are eligible to attend kindergarten. The child’s birth certificate, immunization records and proof of residency are required for enrollment. Please contact your local school for more information and/or to schedule a time to register your child. We begin accepting kindergarten registrations on March 1st of each year. Please keep in mind that you may need to order the birth certificate online.
Children who will be six-years old on or before August 31 are eligible to attend first grade. Immunization records, proof of age and proof of residency are required.
Enrollment for All Other Grades
Students new to the area should register at their local school as soon as possible. Please check your school's website for summer hours. When schools are closed, parents may pick up enrollment packets at the District Office. However, actual registration occurs at each school. Parents need to bring their child's birth certificate, immunization records and proof of residency when they register. You may be asked to present a driver's license or picture ID coupled with a signed rental or lease agreement, a utility bill in your name, or a tax statement in your name. The school will then request the student's records from the previous school they attended.
