Jump Start for Incoming Kindergartners

Jump Start at Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary

Jump Start will take place in person on August 15-19 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. at Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary.

Jump Start is a free school orientation for kindergartners so they start the school year feeling safe, supported, and ready to learn. Students are introduced to the school, meet the staff, and get to meet their peers.

Jump Start Registration

Please note: families must complete the SPS registration form and receive a school assignment prior to signing up for Jump Start.

In May, Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary will reach out to its assigned kindergarten families with information about how to sign up for Jump Start. If you do not hear from your school, please call the office directly at 206-252-6770 to ask how to register.

If you register your kindergartner for Seattle Public Schools during the summer, you will need to request a registration form:

  • Download the registration form and return it to the school
  • Call 206-252-0127 to request a registration form
  • Drop by the Admissions Office to pick up a form
