Bell Schedule

Tahoma runs on a block schedule made up of Blue and Gold Days. Blue days are 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th periods. Gold days are 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th periods. On Fridays, we have a 90-minute early release for students so that teachers and staff can participate in staff development. On days other than Friday, the lunch period is 60 minutes long which allows students to participate in academic support or clubs and activities during the school day for 30 minutes, and still have a 30 minute lunch (students self-select which 30 minute block comes first).

    How do we know which of these schedules to use? Is Friday for every Friday even when it is full day?also how do we know if the assembly is in the am or afternoon?

      Friday bell schedule is in effect on all Fridays, except when announced to students and parents. For students it will be noted in the daily announcements that play on the screens in the school, and for parents it will be noted in the Bear Bytes and sometimes in standalone emails (like this Friday).

      For Assemblies, students will be informed whether it is AM or PM assembly schedule during their first class of the day.
