Required Forms to Complete Prior to the Start of Every School Year
Beginning August 14, 2017, you will be able to log into your Skyward account and complete all the district forms, permission slips and notifications required for the start of school. Parents and guardians will also verify their student demographic information and update phone numbers, email addresses, and emergency contacts. All parents will be required to complete and/or acknowledge all forms for each of their children.
Below is some helpful information on several forms in this online process:
Online Food Service Payment Instructions: As a convenience to parents, the Mercer Island School District now provides parents an easy way to add money to their child’s food service account. Online payments can be made into food service accounts through the Skyward Family Access parent portal they currently use. We have contracted with RevTrak, a national credit card payment processor, to provide a secure site for making payments.
Free or Reduced Price Meal Application: Lunches will be served at no cost or for a reduced price for students who qualify.
Rights, Responsibilities and Due Process: It is the responsibility of all students enjoying the benefits of school citizenship to follow the established rules and procedures governing their school. The community is entitled to expect good citizenship from it’s students and the district’s purpose is to encourage students to learn how to properly exercise their rights and meet their responsibilities of living up to appropriate standards of behavior.

Equity and Civil Rights: Understanding How To Make a Complaint of Unlawful Discrimination in the School District
- What is “discrimination”? Discrimination is the unfair or unequal treatment of a person or a group because they are part of a defined group, known as a protected class. Discrimination can occur when a person is treated differently, or denied access to programs, services or activities because they are part of a protected class. Discrimination can also occur when a school or school district fails to accommodate a student or employee’s disability.
- What should I do if I believe my child is being discriminated against? You must report your concerns to your child’s teacher or principal immediately! This will allow the school to respond to the situation as soon as possible.
Student Insurance Letter: The safety of our students is one of our most important concerns. Even so, accidents do happen and resulting medical treatment (ambulance transport, surgery, hospitalization, etc.) can be very expensive. Please know that the District does not assume responsibility for these costs. However, as a service to you and your child, your school has joined with 1,000s of others by offering you access to a low cost, voluntary purchase student accident/sickness insurance program. Forms are available in the IMS front office.
