TSD Family Updates

May 19th , 2023

Dear Tumwater Families,

We are only 5 weeks away from the end of the 2022-2023 school year! Please see below for all of the important things coming up!


Health Reminder

This time of year, with allergies on the rise, it can be easy to ignore symptoms that can be associated with cold, flu and/or Covid. Our flu and Covid cases have significantly decreased based on last year’s numbers, however we have seen a rise in cases in our schools over the past week.

This is a reminder that if your child is ill or has Covid-like symptoms, please keep them home. Students and staff may return to school with a negative Covid test and an improvement in symptoms. All positive Covid tests should be reported to your school's healthroom staff. There are still at-home tests available in each of our schools if you would like to test for Covid.

Proper handwashing and masking remains the best way to keep from spreading germs. Thank you for doing your part to help mitigate illness in our schools.
