Frequently Asked Questions

Madrona Lottery Process


When will you be doing the lottery? 

The Kindergarten lottery for 2019-20 will take place in early February. You must take a tour by January 31st to be eligible for the lottery.


How will I know if my child was drawn in the lottery?

Calls will go out immediately after the drawing in February.   If you do not receive a phone call from our office by early March, unfortunately, you were not drawn for the 2019 Kindergarten lottery. 


Should I call the school office?

No need to call our school office, we will contact you by phone if your child was drawn in the Lottery.


I need to know if my child got in so I can register my child for our neighborhood school.

Register your child for your neighborhood school.  Do not wait to hear from us.  It is easy to withdraw your child if you do happen to get “the call”. 


What if I have a child in the lottery for a grade other than kindergarten?

Lottery enrollment at all other grade levels is dependent on available space and therefore unpredictable. We only draw from the lotteries when space is available. Once the sibling lottery pool is exhausted for a grade level, then we would draw from the general lottery pool.

Does Madrona have a 'Kick of to Kindergarten' event like neighborhood schools?
No,  Madrona does not have a "Kick off to Kindergarten" event.  We will have an orientation with the Kindergarten teachers sometime in April.

Do I need to tour each year?
No, you only need to tour one time. Your lottery application will remain in the lottery pool until the child ages out, after 8th grade.
