Where can I get a COVID-19 test for my student, child or myself?

COVID-19 testing is available by appointment only (no walk-ins) for all Tahoma students, families and staff across the street from Central Services and Rock Creek Elementary at the Legacy Site (Maple Valley Farmers Market grounds). The address of the test site is 25719 Maple Valley Black Diamond Rd. S.E., Maple Valley, WA 98038.

 How will my student's learning be affected if they are ill or need to quarantine?
We always want to support our students, families and staff during times of illness. With COVID-19, we anticipate supporting students for time out of class because of illness, asymptomatic positive cases and quarantines due to exposure. This document provides our shared goals and expectations for staff and students if a student is out of school for any of those reasons. Click here to view.

Grades K-5: If elementary students are only going to be out for a day or two, teachers will be able to get them caught up fairly easily once they return. In this case, parents do not need to arrange to pick up materials from school. Teachers may request that families pick up materials from school for absences that last more than a few days. Click here for a checklist designed to support your student’s learning while they are out of school.

Grades 6-12: In general, students have two days for every day they are absent to make up work. However, when possible, we want students who are healthy and able to keep up with schoolwork throughout their quarantine so they are able to step right back into your classes with minimal disruption. Click here for a checklist designed to support your student’s learning while they are out of school.

⬜ My student is fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Does their school need that information?
If your student is fully vaccinated, they may be not be required to quarantine if they are exposed to someone who tests positive for COVID-19. To support our nurses, and to limit the time that students are out of the classroom, we are asking families to please send a copy (photos are accepted) of their student’s COVID-19 vaccination record to their school nurse at the email address below.

To reach the nurses at our buildings, please use these addresses, as they often work as a team and fill in for one another:
