Cougar Ridge Kindergarten Information Night

Please plan to attend our parent-only Kindergarten Information Night on Jan, 31, 2023 from 6 - 7 p.m. in the Cougar Ridge Multipurpose Room. We will share information on what a typical kindergarten year looks like, learn about the process to enroll, as well as hear from our nurse, Danielle Kolesnikov, regarding immunization requirements.

Kindergarten Enrollment begins Feb. 1, 2023.  Please stay tuned to the Issaquah School District website for updates.

2023-2024 Kindergarten Registration (Open Enrollment begins February 1, 2023)

It is an exciting time of year as the Issaquah School District begins to reach out to our community in preparation of welcoming the incoming Kindergartens for the 23-24 school year. The Issaquah School District offers full day Kindergarten at no cost to all students. If you have a child who will be a kindergartener for the 2023-2024, please visit the ISD New Student Enrollment website. Students who are turning 5 years old by August 31, 2023, are eligible for enrollment for the 2023-2024 school year.

Schools plan to meet with Kindergarten families in January 2023. Schools will share this information in their electronic bulletins and on their website. Connect with your neighborhood school for more details about that meeting. This meeting will prepare families to complete the online registration. Open enrollment begins February 1, 2023. Please visit the ISD New Student Enrollment website to begin enrollment after February 1, 2023. Once the online portion is complete, you will work with your neighborhood school to completed the enrollment process. If you cannot access the online application, please call or visit your neighborhood school for assistance.

  • Please Note: Students in the Early Childhood Education (ECE) ProgramSLP Program, and those previously evaluated by Special Services (ex. Childfind) must still complete the online kindergarten enrollment process to register for kindergarten. Please start the process as though you are a new student to the Issaquah School District.

School offices are open from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. to assist you. Please note for your convenience, arrival and dismissal times are very high traffic times for the school office. Picking up or submitting required documents at this time may result in longer wait times.

Don't know your neighborhood school? The ISD Transportation Department will be able to assist you in identifying your neighborhood school. Contact Transportation (email) or (phone) 425-837-6330.
