Families living in the Lincoln Service Area* and siblings of currently enrolled students, who are entering at kindergarten level are not required to participate in the lottery, but can register directly into the Lincoln Options Program through the school office. We also welcome new families in the Olympia School District residing outside the Lincoln Service Area who are interested in our alternative program. A lottery, which takes place in the spring, determines the priority for enrolling new students.

We ask that all new families attend one of the following Enrollment Information Night meetings to help in making an informed decision about whether the Options Program is the right fit for their needs. Additionally, at the meeting, families will learn about the lottery process, and have an opportunity to meet the staff and ask questions. 

Enrollment Information Nights

Thursday, March 3, 6 – 8 p.m. via Zoom

Wednesday, March 9, 6 – 8 p.m. via Zoom

Children must be five years old on or before August 31 to attend kindergarten and participate in the lottery.  Out of service area families who are offered a position through the lottery will be asked to provide proof of residency prior to enrollment.

Please email Aly Long at lincolnenrollment@gmail.com or check the OSD website in February for more information regarding how to sign up for Lincoln’s Enrollment Information Night meetings. https://osd.wednet.edu
