For the 2023-2024 school year, all Tacoma Public Schools students will receive free breakfast and lunch. Students who would previously qualify for fee waivers or extra assistance via our Free or Reduced-Price Meal Application process will now be identified through the Household Information Survey. This survey will be available on the district's website soon. It is important to complete this survey if you would be eligible for financial assistance. Please contact Mrs. Kinney in the Main Office to make financial arrangements for any school-related fees.
If your student needs to take medication at school, including over-the-counter medication, you and your student’s doctor must sign a permission form that will remain on file in the Health Room. The medication must be in its original container. If it is a prescription, it must have your student’s name and current orders/instructions on the label. The medication must be brought to the Health Room by a parent or guardian. If the medication is for a life-threatening condition, the medication and current doctor’s orders must be in the Health Room prior to the first day of school. Please contact Nurse Pratt to make arrangements. For more information about Health and Wellness, please visit the district’s website.
Health History Update & Immunization Records
You may need to bring in an updated immunization record if your student is in 6th or 7th Grade - 11 year olds / 7th Graders are required to have the Tdap immunization before starting school.
We will also need a Student Health History Update Form - This is required for 6th graders to give this to our nurse prior to the start of school if you haven't already.
If for any reason a student’s telephone number or address changes, even temporarily, please email the Guidance Office at MeekerRecords@tacoma.k12.wa.us. Meeker Middle School must have current information for emergency purposes.
