Jumpstart 2022

Jump Start will take place August 15 – 19, 2022

The transition to school is a big step in your child’s life. It’s natural to have some anxiety. That’s why, even before school officially starts, we want to begin a connection with your family.

Jump Start orients kindergartners and their families to their new school community. Children come to their new school, meet staff and peers, and practice kindergarten routines. Jump Start is a voluntary summer program.

Jump Start Registration

In late April or in May, each participating Jump Start school 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 their office directly at 206-252-6000 to ask how to register. Wait listed students will attend Jump Start at whichever school they are assigned to as of Jump Start week. 

If you register for Seattle Public Schools during the summer and your kindergartner’s school is offering Jump Start, please call 206-252-6000 to request a registration form, or visit the Early Learning Resources page to download a registration form and return it to the school.

Everyone who completes and returns a form is accepted into the program. You do not need to wait for an acceptance confirmation.

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

For more information please visit the SPS Jumpstart page.
