Enrollment Forms

IMPORTANT: Before filling out these forms, download and save them to your computer (the fillable features are not compatible in some browsers).


New Student Enrollment

If your student is an incoming kindergarten student or new to the Bellevue School District please complete the following forms for enrollment:

  1. New Student Enrollment Packet: English (PDF) / Spanish (PDF) / Simplified Chinese (PDF)
  2. Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS form): English (PDF) / Spanish (PDF) / Simplified Chinese (PDF)
  3. Birth certificate or passport (New kindergarten and 1st grade students only-see Additional Required Documents below)

 

An important note on immunizations:

  • A new Washington State Law requires all students starting school in September 2020 have their Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS) form signed by a doctor. If your student has received all their immunizations in Washington State, you may be able to simply download your student’s immunization form from the Washington State Department of Health website here. If you do not have a medically signed immunization form, please reach out to your student’s doctor to arrange for vaccinations; it is our understanding pediatricians are still vaccinating students. If you can quickly get in, wait to enroll until you have the vaccinations.
