6th Grade Curriculum Night – September 22

Please reserve Monday, September 22, 6:30 – 8:00 PM, for our Skyridge 6th Grade Parent Curriculum Evening. Our teachers are looking forward to sharing with you what our newest Skyhawks will be learning and experiencing this year. There will be a planned schedule, so we encourage you to set aside the full 1 ½ hours to join us here at Skyridge. Due to limited space, this is a parent only event and carpooling is encouraged.

Transportation – AS NEEDED Bus Notes

Transportation Request

For those of you who might be interested in obtaining an “AS NEEDED” bus note, there is now a form that needs to be filled out and returned to the bus barn!  The main office can no longer just give you a bus note for the rest of the year for another bus stop other than your assigned one.

If you are considering going to the Jack, Will, Rob Center or need to go to an after school sitter on a regular basis, you will need to have this filled out IN ADVANCE.  It may take as long as two weeks before approval will be given.  Forms may be obtained in the main office or online through the TRANSPORTATION section on the Camas School website or by clicking the link “Transportation Request” at the top of this post.  If you have any questions, see Mrs. Crews or Mrs. Button in the main office.

Parents save time in line, purchase goods online

vmd

Paying for student fees, yearbook purchases, athletic fees, and more just got a little simpler! The Camas School District is now accepting credit card payments online for all of its secondary schools (Liberty Middle School, Skyridge Middle School, Camas High School, and Hayes Freedom High School).

Parents use their Skyward Family Access credentials to log into the system; they then select a student, add items to their shopping cart, and complete their purchase. Transactions are secure, and no data is stored on district servers.

Online deposits to student meal accounts is still accessed through MealtimeOnline.

A link to the secure payment site is available under Parent Corner on the district website at www.camas.wednet.edu and at each school site. Online payments will be charged a 3.5% convenience fee, which will be added to each transaction at the time of checkout. This fee was approved in May 2014 by the Camas School Board to help cover the transaction fees the district is charged by service providers. No fee is added to traditional payments made by cash, check, or money order.
