Seattle Public Schools

Below are several Seattle Public Schools (SPS) resources to help you and your student prepare for the start of school. You can also always reference the Family Resources Quick Links page or the District Calendar for important dates.

You can find your student’s school bell times on our 2018-19 Bell Times webpage or your school website.

Many of our schools also have onsite before and after school care. View the list of school-based and nearby childcare providers and contact them directly for availability.
