Tustumena Elementary Newsletter

April 20, 2020

We've mentioned before that any field trip money already sent it will be credited toward future field trips, unless parents request a refund. Parents of 6th graders, since we will not have any more field trips with your students here are Tustumena (and we're so sad about that), if you would like your field trip money refunded, please just email TAnthony@kpbsd.k12.ak.us and we will request that refund. If we do not hear from you, the 6th graders' field trip funds will be donated toward other students' future field trips at Tustumena.


While the yearbook ordering deadline is over, this year we ordered extra yearbooks, as we know the ordering process was interrupted and difficult. So if you would still like a yearbook, simply put $15 in exact cash or check in an envelope with your student's name on it with "yearbook order" and we can accept that at materials distribution on Fridays, until all yearbooks are accounted for. We will be allowing everything we receive to sit untouched for a while, as recommended to avoid COVID spreading, therefore checks may sit awhile before being deposited.
