Dear Tillicum Incoming 6th-grade Students and Families,

I am writing to inform you that the Live Student and Family Orientation scheduled for Friday, June 12 at 1:00 PM is cancelled and will be replaced by a recorded event that will be posted to the Tillicum and District Website early next week, likely by Monday afternoon.  The content and information will remain the same.

This change is prompted by Tillicum’s commitment to support our students and families who may wish to participate in community rallies that are occurring during same day and time. After much deliberation, we came to the conclusion that it would be unfair to expect students and families to choose between attending this school-related event, which can be rescheduled, or participating in a day of community action.  We believe this decision is consistent with our District vision to affirm and inspire each and every student to learn and thrive as creators of their future world.

Please reach out directly to me with questions at

In partnership,

James Peterson
Tillicum Principal
