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 2015 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.

    My son and I are relocating from Renton (King County) in the summer of this year. He will be starting in your location in the fall, for 4th grade. I would like to get info regarding enrollment requirements, including immunizations needed. Also, I would like to know if there are local child care centers that bus the students to and from the school to the center.

    I really do appreciate the information. You may contact me via email at livy0915@hotmail.com or cell 757-633-5535.
