EDUCATION

FOR THE CHILDREN
To be enrolled in a Washington school, a child must be at least 5 years old on or before August 31st. State law doesn’t require that students enroll in school until they’re 8, so parents can keep them at home or in child-care programs for an additional year or more. Check with the school for other requirements.
