Library - Mrs. White​


We understand there are a lot of unknowns surrounding school closures. Teachers have done a fantastic job of providing links and resources families can access during the time schools are closed.  These are not meant to be substitute for classroom instruction.  We felt it was also important to provide parents and caregivers with best practices to implement the use of these tools. Hopefully this will ease some anxiety and help give students structured routines that are proven to help them be successful. 

Drive-Up Meals: 

The district recognizes that families who may not currently qualify for free or reduced lunch may find themselves in hardship as more employers choose to quarantine. Therefore, free breakfast and lunch will be made available for ALL Tacoma Public Schools students. The closest location in our community is Meeker Middle school. 

  • Meals will be served between 10 a.m. and noon. 
  • Each student will receive two meals: lunch for the day and breakfast for the following morning. 
  • Please enter through the school's bus loading zone. Our Nutrition Services staff will serve drive-thru style. Walk-ups are also welcome. Please look for our onsite sandwich boards for additional directions. 
  • Other locations that may be nearer to a caregiver can be fund here: ​​

Expanded meal service: During the first week of meal service we provided 23,134 meals to kids. Starting the week of March 23, we hope to serve more students by expanding our FREE meals for kids' program. Buses will make scheduled stops throughout Tacoma neighborhoods and at all elementary schools where kids ages 0 to 18 get a free lunch and breakfast for the next day. We'll still have our 10-middle school "drive-through" meal sites.  Check out the map to find the location and time closest to you. 

Community Food Resources: 

  • Pierce County Food Banks
  • Browns Point United Methodist Church Food Bank (5339 Browns Point Blvd, NE) 2nd and 4th Friday of the month from 4:30-6:00pm 
  • The Harmon (1938 Pacific Ave, 98402) is offering free meals for kids 12 and under with the purchase of an adult meal. This is available all day long, seven days a week until school is back in session.  
  • Tacoma Mutual Aid has sent the following message. “If you are sick, quarantines, immunocompromised or elderly and would like food or other supplies dropped off on your porch, please use this form and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. Our approximate budget is $50 per family.  

Please contact Gina Coheley, School Counselor, if you do not have transportation to pick up the free breakfast & lunch at Meeker Middle school Monday - Friday from 10am -12pm. 
Call or email Ms. Coheley if you need other food items, toiletries or resources. 

At-Home Learning

Comcast free internet ​offer for 2 months for low-income families  

Schedule Suggestion:  

As educators we recognize the value of consistency. Students tend to be most successful when following a consistent schedule. We understand that every family is unique and that the time frame in which you are available to support students academically may differ but know that trying to create a routine will help ease anxiety and offer stability. 

  • Morning Activities Reading and Math: ½ hour for each subject is recommended 
  • Brain Break This is when most students would have recess and lunch. Allowing time to decompress and fuel their bodies for more learning. 1 hour is the recommended time for these activities 
  • Afternoon Activities Writing and Math: ½ hour for each subject is recommended Most grade levels are working on “opinion pieces” This looks different for each grade level. Essentially ask students their opinion on a subject. Younger grades often draw a picture and will copy 1-2 sentences filling in a blank. An example could be (I like snow because____.) Older grades are asked to write at least 5 sentences. 1 sentence stating their opinion, 3 supporting sentences followed by a closing sentence. 
  • Specialists P.E. Music and Library: Rotating these throughout the week and allocating ½ hour is recommended 

Below are a few links to help get you started, each student will be provided with a more comprehensive list that includes login information and passwords from their teachers. You may also visit your teacher's classroom website or The Tacoma Public Schools​ website for more resources.


​ ​Urgent Information!


When is your child too sick for school?                  

There are many infectious diseases that require a child to remain home, however, the flu season is upon us and we are seeing the spread of illness in our school. Please do your part in protecting our staff, students, and community by keeping your child home when they are not feeling well. Their absence will be excused and missed assignments can be completed and turned in later.

Keep your child home if he/she has:

  • A fever: A temperature of 100.4 along with behavior changes or other signs and symptoms such as a sore throat, rash, vomiting, diarrhea, earache, irritability or malaise. Keep home until all symptoms are gone and he/she has no fever (less than 100°F without using fever-reducing medicine) for at least 24 hours.

  • Vomiting: Two or more times within a 24-hour period

  • Diarrhea

Health Promotion Tips/Disease Prevention:

  • Wash hands: Hand washing is the single most important method of preventing the spread of disease according to public health agencies.

  • Cover coughs and sneezes: Cover coughs and sneezes and wash hands if facial tissue (i.e. Kleenex) was used:

  • Vaccinations: Consider getting a flu vaccination! The numbers don’t lie. There is a steady increase in 2019-2020 flu-related urgent care and emergency department visits. The single best way to prevent the flu is to get a flu vaccine.

Please contact our school nurse Rhonda with any questions at (253) 571-6943.
