• Child Care During Extended School Closure

    The Boys & Girls Club of Thurston County, YMCA’s Y-Care, and Tumwater Parks & Recreation, will offer child care to Tumwater students/families during full-time distance learning. Each organization will have your child bring their District Chromebook and charger to participate in learning or may have a District Chromebook cart on-site.

    When conditions in Washington State and/or Thurston County allow, the District will begin in-person learning with a hybrid model that allows students to be in class two days a week and remote learning three days. We will continue to partner with these organizations, who are ready to make adjustments to ensure students can continue receiving care and educational support.
