Kindergarten Students

The Tahoma School District has Full Day Kindergarten for all students at each of our elementary schools. If your child will be five years old on or before August 31st of the school year in which you are enrolling, he/she is eligible to start kindergarten for that school year.

Preschool Students

For children who are not yet kindergarten age and have been receiving special education services on an individualized education plan (IEP) such as speech therapy or developmental preschool, please contact the District's Special Services and Programs office at (425) 413-3579. After special education eligibility has been confirmed, you will be given registration and enrollment information.

Home-Based Instruction (Homeschool) Students

Washington state law recognizes the desire of some parents and families to seek a home-based instruction for their children.   

RCW 28A.200.010(1) states that each person whose child is receiving home-based instruction under RCW 28A.225.010(4) must file annually a signed declaration of intent that he or she is planning to cause his or her child to receive home-based instruction. The declaration is to be filed by September 15 of the school year or within two weeks of the beginning of any public school quarter, trimester, or semester with (1) the superintendent of the public school district within which the parent resides, or (2) the superintendent of a nonresident public school district that accepts the transfer, in which case, the student is considered a transfer student of the nonresident district.
