Seniors & Senior Parents:  Seniors, be sure to place your order for caps and gowns for this year’s graduation now!  You should have received an informational packet from Jostens explaining how to order online at  by Saturday Oct. 16th.  Jostens will bring your Senior Gear and the items you have ordered early (T-Shirts, Hoodies, Key Rings, Extra Tassels) on Oct.19th during lunches.

Student Drop Off/Pick Up: A few tips and tricks to quickly navigate drop off and pick up: carpooling so fewer cars are lining up, consider having your student ride the bus or walk, and/or pick your student up in the skate park or off school grounds. Please remember the flow of the parking lot for pick up/drop off is the use of two entrance lanes into the school parking lot and one exit lane. Thanks for your help as we work to solve the congestion together!

Parent/Teacher Conferences:  Tahoma High School’s Parent/Teacher Conferences will be the evenings of November 9th and 10th and will be remote via Zoom.  Parents will receive an emailed Progress Report the week of November 1st and may schedule a conference with any teacher after that time.  Space is limited, so we encourage a conference only if your student is struggling academically. 

Attendance: Parents, PLEASE give attendance at least a 1-HOUR advance notice when you need to have your student excused and WHICH ENTRY you’ll be at; voicemails/emails DO get received and dismissal slips get sent to students much easier with advance notice. Students will meet you at your car! NO need to come to the doors! Students arriving late, please advise attendance as soon as possible. Contact (or) call 425-413-6209 to arrange the details.
