The Snoqualmie Valley School District announced on October 28, 2015, that the committee charged with selecting new elementary school boundaries for the 2016-17 school year has landed on its preferred option – attendance boundary option B2.
The committee recommended the new boundaries to the superintendent this week and it will go to the school board at tonight’s (October 29th) meeting.

- Moves the Mount Si Road and parts of North Bend Way to NBES (from OES)
- Moves Deer Park and Aster Creek to Elementary #6 (from NBES)
- Moves Eagle Point area and SE Vaughn to Elementary #6 (from FCES)
- Moves the Heights and “K-North” areas to Elementary #6 (from SES)
The committee also recommended that next year’s fifth grade students be allowed to stay and finish at their current schools if they choose, commonly referred to as being ‘grandfathered.’
The district reported that siblings of those fifth graders choosing to stay would also be allowed to continue at their current school – but for one year only. Parents who request this option would responsible for providing transportation for the 2016-17 school year for “grandfathered” students.
This boundary change also sets up a futiure feeder system when the district returns to three middle school at the start of the 2019-20 school year.
The feeder schools are:
- Elementary #6 and FCES students attend Chief Kanim Middle School
- OES and NBES students attend Twin Falls Middle School
- SES and CVES students attend Snoqualmie Middle School
