New Student Enrollment is open for the 2021-2022 school year.
The Monroe School District uses an online process to enroll new students. This process is only for students new to the district, not students transferring from one school to another within the district. Before using the online application process, families are advised to gather the required documents so they may be uploaded directly into the application. During the process, you may save as you go; you do not have to complete it all in one sitting. Once completed and submitted online, the application will be sent to the school for approval. Submitted applications will not be approved until all required documents are received by the school.
- New Families: to begin registration click, visit our Online Enrollment page
- Families with children currently enrolled: log into Skyward Family Access to enroll additional children
If you cannot access the online registration, printed paper packets are available at all school offices as well as the District Administration Office located at 14692 - 179th Avenue SE, Monroe.
Documents Needed for Enrollment
The documents listed below either need to be uploaded during the registration process or brought to the school office. If you are enrolling your student to start during the 2021-2022 school year, please scroll down to read about the immunization law and how it may affect your student's enrollment. Please contact your school if you have any questions.
- Proof of Age - Birth Certificate or Passport
- Residence Verification – Purchase Papers/Property Tax Statement/Lease Agreement, Gas, Water or Electric. This bill must include the parent/guardian name, the address, and be dated within 30 days. If you are renting/leasing a residence in which all utilities are included in rent, you can provide the rental agreement on property management letterhead.

Per Washington State law, all students new to the district on or after 08/01/2020 must have received all of the immunizations for which they are eligible. These vaccinations must be medically documented and on file with the school before the student can attend. If a student is missing any immunizations, and there is no documentation from a provider, then the student may not start school. A medically verified record in Washington is:
- A Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS) printed directly from the Washington State Immunization Information System. Any parent whose student has been immunized in Washington State can access this at MyIR.net. If they do not already have an account, they can create one to access their child’s immunization information.
- A physical copy of the CIS form with a healthcare provider’s signature
- A physical copy of the CIS form accompanied by medical immunization records from a healthcare provider verified and signed by school staff
If the student is coming from another state, an acceptable medically verified immunization record will be:
- Printed from their state’s immunization registry, OR
- Printed by the office of their licensed health care provider with the provider’s signature and then attached to a Washington State CIS card
If you live within district boundaries and are more than a mile away from your child's assigned school (other than Fryelands Elementary), your child is eligible to ride a school bus. Students who are enrolled and eligible to ride the bus must submit the online request form to be assigned to a bus stop.
Please visit our Transportation Department to learn about bus routes.
If you wish to attend a school other than the one to which your neighborhood is assigned, please read more about Requesting a Transfer.
If you would like to provide home-based instruction for your child(ren) instead of enrolling in public school, an approved private school, or an extension program of an approved private school, you must file an annual Declaration of Intent to Homeschool form. Learn more here
