Parents, plan for your public school tours

January 3rd, 2011 · 3 Comments

Now that the kids are going back to school after a long break, it’s time to break out the calendar and plan for public school tours if you have a child who’s entering kindergarten, middle school or high school this fall.

The Seattle Public Schools changed its student assignment plan, beginning in Fall 2010. Now all children are guaranteed a spot in their attendance area school, but parents can still apply to other schools (and cross their fingers that any space is available).

These are the elementary schools that feed into Hamilton Middle School and their tour information. If you don’t know your attendance-area school, find it using your address here. Wallingford families will be assigned to John Stanford, McDonald or B.F. Day if they don’t request another school during open enrollment.
