COVID safety protocols led to a different looking Lake Washington School District (LWSD) Culinary Competition this year. The event took place virtually with students cooking from their own kitchens.
Skyward Family Access Support
Parents/guardians can submit and verify their student’s demographic information, including health information and emergency contacts through Family Access. Family Access also allows change request of their student’s information. Families who do not go online to verify the information will receive a paper form to complete the process.
In some instances, the requested information updates will require a staff member to "Approve" the change. An example is a change of address requires proof of residency.
If you can't find an answer to your question on this page, please contact ParentQuestions@lwsd.org for further assistance.
