TTSD Community Newsletter

April 16, 2021

Happy Friday! Today I spent the day visiting our middle and high schools. Teacher and staff excitement was evident as I walked through carefully prepared classrooms ready to welcome incoming hybrid students on Monday as well as continue to support our online students. My thanks to our administrators, teachers and teaching staff, office staff, coaches, food service, and, of course, our custodians -- the buildings are shining and ready to go.

As our families prepare to send students back into our buildings, a couple of important reminders:

  • Please create a morning practice of checking your student for health symptoms and keep them home if they have any signs of illness. You can find our home check guidance here.
  • Please make sure your school office has your current contact information.
  • Watch for information coming from your principal and your school newsletter. There’s a lot of information being shared right now. If the information you are looking for is not included in these communications, please reach out to your school principal or office.
