Beginning August 25, Girls Cross Country practice will be from 3:00-4:30 PM. There will be no practice on Friday, August 29. Football practices remain the same.
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.
Please mark your calendar with the following:
Wednesday, August 27: 6th grade/New Student Orientation 5:30-8 PM (Parents and students should plan to stay for the entire event)
Thursday, August 28: 7/8th grade students may drop-in to pick up schedules and pay fees. 8 AM-3 PM
The Skyridge school office is now closed for summer break and will open on Monday, August 18, 8 AM-3 PM.
