Marysville School District
It is an honor and privilege to serve the students and families of our Marysville and Tulalip community. On behalf of the Superintendent, Board of Directors, our District and School(s) staff, we are excited for the new school year.
Our goal is to provide an exceptional experience for our students and families. One where all feel welcome, treated with dignity and respect, in environments where students are engaged in their learning, feel safe, and cared for by staff. We can do this together by building trusting relationships, mutual respect, and delivering exceptional customer service to all we serve.
Our school district is working hard to improve academic outcomes for students and much work has been underway to align instructional programs, purchase new curriculum, and provide professional development training for our staff to strengthen our programs. In addition, thanks to our voters’ approval of the 2018 Capital Levy, we are completing much-needed upgrades to our aging schools.
Thank you for supporting our schools and the Marysville and Tulalip community. Strong schools make for even stronger communities and we embrace the responsibility with you by our side to produce students who are prepared for all the world has to offer.

September is such a great time to finish up summer projects, get ready for the holidays coming up, and to reflect on the year’s achievements. The Tulalip Tribes recently gave tribal youth students, ages three to high school, over 1,200 backpacks! A huge thanks to Costco Wholesale who helped out by donating 420 backpacks from the Lynnwood Costco Business Center.
Tulalip wants to welcome back all students and is excited for another year of collaborating with local partners, such as Marysville School District and the City of Marysville for upcoming projects, holidays, and community events. Visit our website for more information at www.tulaliptribes-nsn.gov.
City of Marysville
While city government is not directly involved in our public school system, city leaders work with the community to support our students, families, teachers and administration. In late August, Mayor Jon Nehring joined a school bus tour for 40 teachers new to the Marysville community.
“I salute all of these new teachers for choosing such an important career,” Mayor Nehring said, “and am grateful they chose to begin this career here in our community.”
The city also offers support to students and families in other ways. For example, we partner with the community on the back-to-school supplies drive, offering city facilities as drop-off barrel locations. Plenty of city employees also donate school supplies on their own as well. And in one of this summer’s biggest volunteer successes, the Marysville Police records division raised more than $3,000 in its annual yard sale to benefit the Marysville Community Food Bank’s “Food for Thought” backpack program. Through this donation alone, 600 local school children in need will be able to bring home enough food for a weekend’s meals and snacks.
