Trojan Day Info: The Details

Parking Info

Parking is LIMITED

If you have been by the school, you will notice there are new portable classrooms where some seniors used to park. There is also construction that will take up a portion of the staff parking lot. This year, we will be short a few of the parking spots that we normally have in both lots, which will affect the number of parking passes we will be able to sell.


Because parking is limited, seniors take priority for available spots which can be purchased at Trojan Days. After senior Trojan Day, remaining spots will be available to the juniors (first come first serve until spaces are gone). If there are spots still open after juniors have been processed, they will be made available to the sophomores. Any student wishing to get a parking pass must have a current driver's license. Additional spots will go on sale when the STEAM center is completed and the portables are removed later this year.


If you are wanting to purchase a parking spot,

1. Fill out this form prior to coming to Trojan Day. If you are a senior who qualified for parking lot painting you also need to fill out the form.


2. Bring a copy of your drivers license to Trojan Day (driver's permits not accepted)


3. Pay $25 at Trojan Days

Returning Students

Returning students maintain their prior year’s free or reduced eligibility for the first 30 school days, or until a new application is processed.

Please notify Toni Barnett, Manager of Food Services (253.517.1000) if a returning student has a newly enrolled sibling so that we may extend the 30 school day eligibility to the new student. Families will still need to complete a new application to avoid any unnecessary charges.

Skyward Update, We need your updated info!

Your child's school will use the current information on their info screen to send mailings home, email notifications regarding school events & information, or in the event of an emergency situation call parents or emergency contacts.

  • Update your contact information (ie; home address, Email address, cell phone number, emergency contact numbers).
  • To look at the information in Skyward log into your Skyward account, then go to Family Access, scroll down to the Student Info tab and look over ALL your information.
  • Make sure your student's name is spelled correctly. The way your child's name appears on this screen should be their legal name as this is used to print their high school diploma. (The middle name will only appear as the first letter of the name so you'll want to make sure that the full middle name is spelled correctly before diplomas are printed.)
