Enrollment Process

New Student Enrollment is now available for the 2020-2021 school year.

The Monroe School District has an online process to enroll new students. This process is only for new students to the district, not students transferring to another school within the district. Prior to using the online application process, families are advised to have the required documents available to upload into the application. You may save as you go and do not have to complete it all in one sitting. The completed application, once submitted online, will be available to the school for approval. Submitted applications will not be approved until all required documents are received by the school. 

If you cannot access the online registration, you can obtain the paper packet at any school office or at the District Administration Office, located at 200 E. Fremont Street, Monroe.

The documents listed below will need to be uploaded during the registration process or brought into the school office. If you are enrolling your student to start in the 2020-2021 school year, please scroll down to read about the new immunization law and how it may affect your student's enrollment. Please contact your school if you have any questions.

Immunization Requirements

Per WA State law, all students new to the district on or after 8/1/2020 must have all of the immunizations they are eligible to receive. These vaccinations must be medically documented and on file with the school before the student can attend school. If a student is missing any immunizations they are eligible for and there is no documentation from a provider, then the student may not start school. A medically verified record is:

  • A Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS) printed directly from the Washington State Immunization Information System.  Any parent whose kids have 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 WA State CIS card

Transportation

If you live within district boundaries and more than a mile away from your child's assigned school (other than Fryelands Elementary), your child is eligible to ride the bus. Students who are enrolled and eligible will be assigned to a bus stop.
Please visit our Transportation Department to learn about bus routes.


Transfers

If you would like to attend a school other than the one you are assigned to, please read more about requesting a transfer.

*At this time, Park Place Middle is at capacity and therefore, not accepting any further in or out of district transfer requests. 


Home-Based Instruction

If you would like to provide home-based instruction for your child(ren) instead of enrolling in our public schools, an approved private school or an extension program of an approved private school, you must file an annual declaration of intent to provide home-based instruction. Learn more here
