    What is the first day of school for my Kindergarten student?
    The calendar for the 2017-18 school will be released soon.  In general, kindergarten students start the Monday following the first day of school which is usually a Wednesday.  However, if school starts prior to Labor Day, kindergarten students would then start on the Tuesday after Labor Day.

Parents must complete an Open Enrollment Application and submit it to desired school each year.

    Immunization Requirements
    The State of Washington requires all children entering kindergarten or sixth grade to have: 
    • a series of three Hepatitis B vaccinations as well as immunization against Polio, Diphtheria/Tetanus, Rubella, Mumps, and Measles, and Varicella (Chickenpox) before they enter school. Starting with the fall of 2016, all students 9th - 12th grade will be required to have two doses of the Varicella vaccine.
    • a second measles immunization (MMR) is also required before your child can enter kindergarten or the sixth grade
    • sixth grade students are required to have an additional Tetanus (Tdap) vaccine
    If parents/guardians choose to exempt their child from one or more of the required vaccines, they must complete the Certificate of Exemption Form (DOH 348-106). All exemptions must have a licensed health care provider sign and date the form where indicated. A health care provider does not need to sign the form for parents/guardians who show membership in a church or religious body that does not allow medical care from a health care provider. Additional information is available at www.doh.wa.gov/CommunityandEnvironment/Schools/Immunization/VaccineRequirements.aspx.
     
    An additional vaccine called Gardasil is now available for boys and girls ages 9 and up. This vaccine can help protect against some strains of the Human Papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted disease which can cause cancer. Many health officials recommend this vaccine, but it is not required for school.

    To enroll in Bremerton Schools, several forms must be filled out and returned to your neighborhood school or the district office. For your convenience we have linked these forms to our web site.

     

     

    Early Entrance Kindergarten

    Children who turn five between September 1st and October 31st may be eligible for Kindergarten, if they pass an Early Entrance Test. There is an $80 non-refundable fee for this test (a reduced rate is available for free and reduced lunch program participants). No make-up tests will be given. Registration for testing for the 2017-18 school year will open June 1 – July 21st.  Please call Special Programs at 360.473.1061 for more information.
      
    The testing takes 1.5 hours to complete using the DIBELS (Dynamic Inventory of Basic Early Literacy Skills), DIAL (Developmental Indicators for the Assessment of Learning), and Easy CBM.
      
    Release of Student Information / Photo Release

    In accordance with federal and state laws, the Bremerton School District may release student directory information for various purposes. Additionally, the Community Relations Department and district staff may take photographs of students and school activities which may appear in various District materials, including the District’s website (www.bremertonschools.org), newsletters, yearbooks, calendars, etc. Parents and eligible students have a right to opt out of the inclusion of information about their student by completing a Release of Student Information & Photo Release “Opt Out” Form and submit it to your child's school.

     
    Enrollment Options
    Most students in Washington go to the public schools that are closest to their homes. But parents and guardians have many enrollment options for their kids. Students can attend an approved private school, enroll in an Alternative Learning Experience program (such as an online school), be taught at home, etc.. In some circumstances, they also can transfer to other schools within or outside the district in which they live. The Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction has published a booklet to answer the most commonly asked questions about the Learning by Choice law. Learn More
