Attention Families-To ensure that all children have access to nutritious meals during the pandemic, the USDA has approved schools to revert back to Summer Feeding programs. Starting this coming Tuesday September 8th, 2020 and continuing through to December 31st, 2020, all students will be able to receive a FREE breakfast and a FREE lunch each day at school. We are working on extending this service to our community members 0-18 years of age and not attending TSD schools in person.
***Please note: Because this program has only been approved through December 2020, please continue to fill out and send in free/reduced applications. This will ensure your student(s) will be qualified to receive free or reduced meals at the start of the new calendar year.
Car Rider Drop Off and Pick Up! !
Parents are to stay in their cars when dropping off and picking up their children. Students will be required to enter the building wearing a face-covering.
When picking up your child, please write their name on a sheet of paper, so the staff member can retrieve your child quickly and expedite our afternoon process.
FACE COVERINGS ARE MANDATORY
FACE COVERINGS MANDATORY IN SCHOOL
All students will be required to wear a face-covering during the school day. We will do our best to provide mask breaks to students, but at this time ALL STUDENTS will be required to wear face-coverings on the bus and once they enter school. Please see the State Department of Education's Frequently Asked Questions link below for more information.
Last week, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) released an update to their guidance in regards to face coverings being worn at all times to help mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Prior guidance we released in collaboration with The Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) stated students in schools could remove their face coverings as long as six feet of social distancing could be maintained. Given this recent change from the AAP, and consistent with the Secretary of Health’s Face Covering Order issued on July 1, 2020, DOH is requiring students to wear face coverings at all times while in school, even when six feet of social distancing can be achieved. There are limited exceptions.
All students will be required to wear a face-covering during the school day. We will make every attempt possible to provide the students with multiple mask breaks during the day, but at this time it is required by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and Department of Health that all students wear a face covering.
