Open House Monday, January 30, 2023

For 2023-24 incoming students and prospective parents, we will have an open house on Monday, January 30, 2023 from 6-7pm in our library. SPS Open Enrollment for School Choice will be the month of February, so this is the perfect time to learn about Greenwood Elementary.

Kindergarten Enrollment
If your child will be five by August 31, 2023, you are eligible to register them for kindergarten. Registration for 2023-24 for incoming kindergarten students and students new to Seattle Public Schools begins on January 3rd, 2023.

Students New to Seattle Public Schools
All new student registration, including kindergarten, is completed online. Visit our Enroll My Student webpage.

Every student in Seattle Public Schools is automatically assigned to their attendance area school, which is determined by where they live. Families can also choose to apply to request that their student attend a different school through the Open Enrollment for School Choice Process.

Items you will need to register new students:
Parent or guardian photo ID
Child’s passport or birth certificate
Two (2) proofs of home address dated within past eight (8) weeks
Child’s immunization (shots) record.

Applying for Another School – Open Enrollment for School Choice
If your student wants to apply to attend a school that is not their assigned school, you must submit a School Choice form. We encourage families to apply during the Open Enrollment period. Only forms submitted during Open Enrollment will receive tiebreakers. Applications received after Open Enrollment are prioritized based on the date the application is received.

School Choice forms will be available on February 1st, 2023 online or at the John Stanford Center. More information and the forms are available on the School Choice and Open Enrollment page.

The Enrollment Services is here to help. Bilingual staff speak Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Amharic, Oromo, and Somali. You can reach us by phone at 206-252-0760 and our Customer Service Help Center. Assistance is available for families living in transition; please call 206-252-0660.
