What is Family Access?

Family Access is a web-based tool designed to enhance parent/guardian and school communication. All information is password protected and each guardian has their own Login ID and Password.

How to get your Login ID and Password:

  • If you supplied your current E-mail address at registration go to the Family Access Login screen and click the Forgot your Login/Password? link. This process will send an E-mail with your Login ID and instructions to reset your password.
  • If you did not supply an E-mail address at registration or you have trouble with the process above, please contact your student's school office. During the summer please contact the District Office at 253-566-5600.


Logins are originally formatted as the first five (5) characters of your last name followed by the first three (3) characters of your first name. If either name does not contain that number of characters, please add spaces to complete the formula. The last 3 digits are numerical, usually zeros. Example: LEE_ _CAT000

Family Access requires the use of pop-ups therefore they must be enabled before getting in. It is recommended to add an exception for Skyward's Family Access rather than disabling pop-ups completely.

This option is found under the Food Service tab in the web version of Family Access.
