Services for students during school closure

Following a new directive from Washington State Governor Jay Inslee, we will close all Renton School District schools beginning Monday, March 16 through Friday, April 24. 

We're constantly updating our school closure/coronavirus webpage. Here are services for students/families during closure:

Meal Services
Beginning Tuesday, March 17, 2020, meals will be available for any child, ages 1-18, in the front lot of each Renton School from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm daily during the school week. We are committed to providing access to meals to help ensure that all students’ nutritional needs are met during the closure. Meals are “grab and go” - Students will not stay on-site to eat; meals are intended to be taken off campus and can be picked up through car windows.

Additionally, meals will be available at the following locations daily from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm daily:

Learning During Closure
Renton Schools have provided resources for at-home learning during our closure. We are committed to providing equitable learning experiences for our students. These resources are intended to support skill maintenance and development. Paper copies were distributed to students at all schools on Friday, March 13 and directions posted on the district website page for students and families. Additional copies will be available at schools during meal service.

State Testing
The state's education office (OSPI) is cancelling all state testing for the 2019-2020 school year. This includes the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA), the Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science (WCAS), the Washington Access to Instruction and Measurement (WA-AIM), and WIDA Alternate ACCESS for English learners.

Childcare
We are working with our local partners and with the state education office (Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction - OSPI), on clear guidance to provide childcare during the school closure. Details to follow.

Building, Field, Pool Use During Closure
Our schools, buildings, fields and pools remain closed to outside organized teams/groups through the end of March.

Kindergarten girl thumbs up

Registration for new kindergarten students began in January 2020. Parents of eligible students can visit their neighborhood school to pick-up a registration packet. A child must be five years old by August 31, 2020 to be eligible for kindergarten enrollment.

Parents can fill out the necessary paperwork and register their child now. Tours of schools and meetings with teachers will be conducted in mid-April during the “Ready for Kindergarten” events being held at each school where staff will share expectations for students as they enter kindergarten and provide families with some fun activities to help ensure that your child is prepared.

We offer free full‐day Kindergarten programs in all our elementary schools. Kindergartners attend school on the same schedule as students in grades 1-5:

  • Core curriculum of reading; writing; mathematics; science; social studies; Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM); and additional experiences in art, music, PE
  • Transportation is provided to students on an established bus route
