Families in the Lincoln Service Area and siblings of current students are guaranteed access to the Options Program at Lincoln School. We also welcome new families in the Olympia School District residing outside the Lincoln Service Area who are interested in an alternative program. A lottery, which takes place in the spring, determines the priority for enrolling new students. Attendance at a Lincoln Information Night is recommended for all potential students and required for out of service area students.
Children must be five years old on or before August 31 to attend kindergarten and participate in the lottery. Out of service area families who are offered a position through the lottery will be asked to provide proof of residency prior to enrollment. Siblings of students currently enrolled must be living in the same household to be eligible for participation in the lottery. Out of service area siblings must begin the program in Kindergarten, or they will need to go through the lottery for enrollment in grades 1 through 5.
We invite you to attend orientation meetings and to complete a program application. For more information about the Options Program and enrollment information, including schedules of classroom visitations and information about the Lincoln Options lottery process, please call Lincoln Elementary School at (360) 596-6400.
Enrollment Information Nights* will be held in February and March of 2017 in the Lincoln cafeteria.
Observation Week: Both returning and new families are invited to observe in the classrooms during the mornings one week in March. If you come to observe in the classrooms please sign in at the table in the office.
*Attendance at a Parent Information Night is required to participate in the lottery. The lottery will take place in March.
