Happy new year! This is an exciting time as we prepare for the 2019-20 school year. The resources on this page will help you get ready so you can be ready for learning on the first day of school.
It depends! To help transition students into new grades, some students start on different days. See below to find your first day.

In keeping with our commitment to address school start times, we've made adjustments to school bell time schedules for the 2019-20 school year. Any additional adjustments will be posted once they've been finalized.
School supplies are requested but not required. If purchasing school supplies creates a financial hardship, please contact the office manager and supplies will be provided for you.
We serve meals that are convenient, economical and healthy to our students daily. Our menus are designed to provide good nutrition, variety and the best service possible for your children.
Our Transportation Department proudly transports over 17,000 students to and from school on a daily basis. Bus routes for the 2019-20 school year will be available on August 27.
At the beginning of each year nurses collect student health information to plan for needs during the school day.
When will I receive my class assignment?
Elementary school classroom assignments will be mailed during the last week of August. Middle school and high school families should look to their school's website for specific information on class schedules and registrations. Please contact your school directly with questions.
Do you provide before and after school care?
Thanks to community partnerships, before and after school care is available at all Northshore elementary schools. We contract with the Northshore YMCA and the Champions Program to provide these services to our families.
