Attendance area boundary changes, new school openings, building remodels, open houses, school tours, levy ballots–it’s dizzying to think of all the changes taking place within Seattle Public Schools–and Wallingford seems to have hit the mother lode.
So while you’ve still got school on the brain, I’m curious to know which schools your children will attend in Fall 2010. This question goes beyond those entering Kindergarten, so, for example, if your third grader attends B.F. Day or John Stanford this year, and will go there again next year, please select that as your answer in the handy poll below.
I’ve added B.F. Day to the mix because up until last Wednesday, any child living on the west side of Wallingford Avenue, to the Wallingford/Fremont boundary, was assigned to B.F. Day and will remain there until they finish fifth grade. B.F. Day will also serve as the “linked” school for our neighborhood.
I’ve also included the choice of “other” public schools, since some neighborhood kids go to Lowell or Salmon Bay, and likewise for private school. If you like, feel free to anonymously list the name of your child’s “other” school in the comments section, as it would be interesting to note how many children attend schools “beyond the boundaries.”
The results of this little neighborhood sample will provide me with a snapshot of our schools’ attendance patterns as I prepare to write profiles of each neighborhood school in the coming weeks.
