Skyward Family Access
In our ongoing effort to increase communication between school and home, we are pleased to offer Skyward Family Access to our families. Skyward is our statewide student information system, and all families have access to the system. With this online ability, you will be able to view your child’s schedule, daily attendance, quarter/semester grades and grade books, and general and emergency information. The information is on a secure server, and you will access the information using a unique login and password.

Frequently Asked Questions
What if I'm experiencing difficulties with my login/password?
Please contact Mary Newcomer (206-230-6336) and she will be able to help you or refer you to receive additional help.
How often are gradebooks updated in Skyward?
Gradebooks are updated at different intervals by different teachers. All teachers have committed to updating their gradebooks mid-quarter and at the end of the quarter. Many teachers update more often than that. If you have questions about updates, please contact the teacher directly.
What do assignments on the missing list mean?
In Skyward, if an assignment if past due or marked missing it appears on your child's missing assignment list. When looking at those assignments, pay careful attention to any special scores or comments as they may explain the situation further. For instance, there may be a code of TI (Turned In). This means that the assignment is turned in, has yet to be scored, but is not really missing. If you have questions about a specific assignment, you need to contact the teacher.
