    Spanaway Middle School is a closed campus: students may not leave during the day without permission. If a student leaves campus for any reason without checking out, they will be considered truant and face disciplinary action.

    If a student lives within a one-mile radius of Spanaway Middle School, they may walk or ride a bike to school. However, students must secure their bike with their own lock on a daily basis in the bicycle port. The district assumes no liability for loss or damage which may occur to a bicycle that is brought to campus.
