Dear Parents and Guardians,
We want to make you aware of some changes coming to Skyward Family Access. There will be a new look and feel to improve the experience for users. You will have access to settings to personalize your account and better set it up to meet your needs.
As you know, Skyward Family Access can be utilized to access your child's grades, view attendance, view discipline, make payments for meals (and view balances and payments), and view your child's schedule, test scores, fees, and health information. You can also email your child's teacher.
You have the opportunity to preview and use the new model now by clicking on the "Preview Family Access" link in the upper left hand corner of the screen. All new changes will go into effect mid-July. An overview of the new access is available on the district website at www.msvl.k12.wa.us - click on Parent tab.
As a reminder, in order to access Skyward you must have a log in and password. For more information or to obtain a log in to your child's account, contact your child(ren)'s school.
Please note that Skyward is sensitive to some internet browsers. We have found the Mozilla Firefox works most efficiently with the program.

Professional Growth Friday's - Teacher Collaboration
The Value of Teacher Collaboration
Highlights from around the state regarding the value of teacher collaboration and its connection to student achievement. Many districts, including Marysville, use the early release Friday's for this purpose.
Calendars for School Years 2014-15 and 2015-16
Marysville School District and the Marysville Education Association
recognizes the need to provide calendar information for the school year
as early as possible. While we have shared a "perpetual" calendar
earlier this summer, that calendar did not include early release and
non-school days. What parents and staff can count on for the upcoming
year is that every Friday will be an early release day for students and
professional development for staff (with a few non-school days also on
Friday's). The calendar is the Parent Calendar which provides additional detail.
The district's goal was to provide staff, parents and community members with the draft calendar to assist in future planning. These calendars include the following dates:
E Link (bus route information - look up by home address - use login: school1, password: search)
Inclement Weather and Limited Bus Route Information (information about delayed start or school closure due to inclement weather and limited transportation bus routes)
