Back to school!

The beginning of the school year is nearly upon us, and we want to be sure you have access to these documents when you need them, even before school offices open.

  • Our 2018-19 CSD Calendar now reflects secondary late start dates. On late start dates, middle and high schools will start 2 hours later than usual. Please Note: Next year, we will no longer be sending reminder emails, phone calls, and texts on late start dates to families for two reasons. 1) Frequency: They are now one day at each occurrence, but they occur twice a month and 2) Pattern: They occur every 2nd and 4th Thursday when school is in session with the exception of November, which, we hope, will be easy to remember.
  • View our Summer Schedule to learn about opening dates, back-to-school events, and more.
  • If your student has a district-issued Chromebook, click here to learn about Summer Care.
  • 2018-19 bus pick-up and drop-off schedules will be available online by Monday, August 6.
  • Remember, beginning next year, school start times for elementary and secondary schools have changed.

It is time for Kindergarten registration for the 2016-17 school year! Listed below are the dates for registration and orientation events for each school. The purpose of orientation is to meet teachers and staff, learn about the kindergarten curriculum, and take a ride on a real school bus! If you are not sure which school your child will attend, or would like to make a registration appointment, please call 360-833-5410 to speak with Shanna Michelle and Becky Stauffer, district registrars. They will also be onsite at the orientations for your convenience.  You may access registration paperwork online at www.camas.wednet.edu/registration.

Please note: in addition to the registration forms, you will need to submit the following paperwork:

  • State-issued birth certificate
  • Immunization information.  Students must be fully immunized including “kindergarten shots” or an exemption needs to be on file in order for your child to be registered.
  • Proof of residency (2 items), i.e., utility bill, payroll check, signed lease agreement, etc.

Please let us know if you plan to attend the kindergarten orientation.  And if you know of any future Camas kindergarten students in your neighborhood, preschool, etc., please share this information with them.
