Here's what you need to know for this week:

ParentSquare to Unify School-to-Home Communications
Starting Next School Year (2024-25)

Registration for Tahoma’s Extended Enrichment Summer Program (Summer EEP) is now open: Register for Summer EEP Here. The program runs June 26–August 14, 2024 and is open 6 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. daily. Registration is done by the week, and the cost is $200 per week for 3 days, and $300 per week for 5 days. Summer EEP will be located at Shadow Lake Elementary School this year, and more information can be found at the EEP webpage.

Start/End Times for 2024-25 School Year

Beginning last school year, we piloted a 2-year professional development schedule that led to adjusted start and end times Monday–Thursday for all schools, and a two-hour early dismissal each Friday for all schools. That 2-year pilot is ending at the end of this school year. Beginning next school year, all Tahoma schools will be reverting to their previous daily school schedules, including a 90-minute early dismissal on Fridays. See all school start and end times for next school year here:
