It's definitely an option in WA, in fact, its the law that any public school that would sccept your child as a full time student accepts him or her as a part time student. That said, it's not always easy to get the schools to DO it.
There are a lot of homeschool families around here who send their kids to school for certain classes- spanish, gym, music, like that. We have friends whose 4th grader goes to school one day a week, rides the bus and everything. That was fairly complicated to arrange, but is working out well enough. It seems easier, understandably, to arrange attendance just for the special classes, rather than part time in the regular class.
