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.
2023 Upcoming Enrollment Information Nights
Thursday, March 2, 6 – 8 p.m.
Wednesday, March 8, 6 – 8 p.m.
Location: Lincoln Cafeteria
Childcare provided by donation
Observation week: Guardians/Parents are also invited to observe classrooms between 9:00 – 11:30 a.m., March 13th-16th. We ask that only adults attend to observe classrooms to minimize disruption to the learning environment.
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.
For questions, please email Aly Long at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (520) 820- 5390.
Additionally, the Olympia School District is hosting an informational event for families who will have children in kindergarten in the 2023 – 2024 school year. This event, ‘Countdown to Kindergarten’, will be held on March 4, from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. at Capitol High School. Please check the OSD website in February for more information regarding ‘Countdown to Kindergarten.’
