Learn All About Kindergarten Day

On Saturday, February 20, the Olympia School District will hold its annual “Learn All About Kindergarten” informational event starting at 10 a.m. at Capital High School. If you know of anyone in your neighborhood that has a child entering kindergarten in fall 2016, please share this information with them and encourage them to attend.

The event begins with a welcome by Superintendent Dick Cvitanich and general overview in the school theater followed by an information fair until noon in the Commons. During the event parents will learn about a variety of topics related to kindergarten and school in general, including how to register for kindergarten, kindergarten program options, riding the bus, and how to use the district’s Family Access student information system to stay updated on everything from grades to lunch accounts.

A reminder that children should be 5 years old by August 31, 2016 to be eligible to start kindergarten this fall. The event is geared for adults of incoming kindergartners in the Olympia School District. Childcare is not provided. Capital High School is located at 2707 Conger Ave. N.W. in Olympia.

Safe Schools Alert

Safety is our top priority.  SafeSchools Alert is a reporting system that allows students, staff, and parents to submit concerns to our administration in four different ways; phone, text, email or via the web.  Anyone may easily report on bullying, harassment, alcohol/other drugs, vandalism or safety concerns through the SafeSchools Alert process.  Tips may be submitted anonymously.

Instances of harrasment, intimidation or bullying may also be reported by completing the "HIB Incident Reporting Form" found here on the OSD website.  After completing this form it may be delivered in person, by fax, or email attachment to the school principal.

If you have questions, contact your school principal or the District Compliance Officer, Jeff Carpenter at (360) 596-8544.
