School’s Out June 16th
The Tahoma School Board in March approved an updated version of the 2016-2017 school calendar, including two snow make-up days. The last day of school will now be June 16.
In addition, beginning on April 21, Fridays will be full school days with no early release in order to make up the late starts called due to weather. The exception for grades 6-12 is on May 26, when those students will attend a half-day due to Green Day.
For half-day kindergarten: Beginning Friday, April 21, through June 9, morning and afternoon kindergarten will attend on their regular schedule all five days of the week. On June 16, only morning kindergarten will attend because it’s a half day.
Seniors will attend school from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 20, in order to meet state requirements before graduation. Students and parents should have received a letter from the high school explaining how that time will be used.
The calendar revisions are necessary to ensure that the school district offers 180 days of instruction and 1,027 hours of instruction, as required by law.
