Summary: Registration for Jump Start is open!

What is Jump Start?

Jump Start is a FREE week-long experience to welcome new kindergartners and their families to Seattle Public Schools. Children meet their peers and school staff and get to know the school. Our goal is for all students to start school feeling safe, supported, and ready to learn.

When is Jump Start?

August 15-19, 2022

9 am to 12 noon

Will Jump Start be held in-person?

We plan to hold Jump Start in person, but your school will contact you if this changes. Families drop off and pick up their child; no school bus transportation is offered. Students are expected to attend Jump Start independently.

How do we sign up for Jump Start?

Registration for Jump Start at Olympic View is now open. Welcome letters were sent via parent/guardian email on May 11. If your student is enrolled for kindergarten for the 2022-23 school year at Olympic View but you have not received a welcome email, please use the registration link below:
