5th Grade Parents

Tdap vaccination requirement

Parents of fifth grade students: To enter the sixth grade, families must show proof of one dose of the Tdap vaccine (to help prevent pertussis/whooping cough). The deadline to turn in the completion form is June 1, 2019, unless your child has a summer birthday. Children with summer birthdays just need to have a completed form on file by the first day of school.  The form is also available on the district website. If you have any questions, please contact your school nurse


Verification of Residence Registration Changes

As of Feb. 2, 2019, all LWSD schools will require two forms of Residency Verification. Some acceptable documents are mortgage statements, rental agreement, utility bill or government mail. See here for more information.

Starting Thursday, February 7 from 1 to 7 pm

If you have a child who will be 5 years old on or before August 31, 2019, it's almost time to register for kindergarten! To learn about the process and what documents to bring with you to the school for registration, visit the LWSD Kindergarten Registration page.

Now you have the option of emailing the school if your child is absent. Our new attendance email address is DIC-ExplAttend@lwsd.orgPlease be sure to leave your child’s first and last name, teacher’s name, and reason for the absence. We still have our 24-hour attendance line (425-936-2531) available but wanted to provide another convenient option.
