Hello TMS Families, As we gear up for the first days of school, we wanted to communicate the current status of student schedules. We had an amazing turnout at open house, which was awesome! However, the drawback is that we have had a great amount of schedule change requests! We will continue to work on schedules throughout the holiday weekend with the intention of filling requests, and balancing class sizes. That being said, we are full this year! Which is great, but it may turn out that first choice of electives may not be available. Don't worry, if your student does not get their first choice during the 1st semester, we will do our best to make sure they can 2nd semester. Have a great long weekend! We are excited to get started! See everyone on the first day of school, Wednesday, September 5th!

We are happy to report that Skyward is now up and running and parents are able to access Family Access. Now that we are able to access our system, it will take district staff some time to manually input data from the last few days, but we are working diligently to make sure the information is accurate. Thank you for your patience these last few days!
Skyward Update: Good Afternoon! We received the following info from our Information Processing Cooperative: The WSIPC engineering team and contractors worked to restore full services through the night. Installation of hardware is complete, but the testing process is taking longer than expected. For now Skyward is still down, but we are hopeful that services will be restored soon. We'll keep you posted!
FYI...Due to a system outage within WSIPC, (Washington Schools Information Processing Cooperative), Skyward is temporarily experiencing a service disruption statewide. This means Skyward Family Access as well as the ability to post to student lunch accounts will be unavailable until the issue can be resolved. WSIPC understands the widespread impact this will have on district operations and has directed all available resources toward resolving the issue as quickly as possible, but the impacts of the outage may last several more days. We will keep you informed as they continue to secure a resolution. Thank you for your patience!
