Tustumena Elementary Newsletter

September 16, 2019

Dear Tustumena Parents,

We have been receiving questions about the school closure. For any day that school is closed for strike, all activities are cancelled. There will be no Boys and Girls Club that day, all PTO, Site Council, and other meetings are cancelled. The Kasilof Public Library will also be closed on any of those days. When this happens, the school building itself is closed, and therefore all activities on school grounds are cancelled. Please be aware that the Upcoming Events section below will list everything as though school is in session, as we cannot predict the length of this closure. When school resumes, all activities will resume as usual.

In looking on social media, it does appear that some businesses in town have opened up their doors to day camps. There may be others, but we have seen posts about Solid Rock Bible Camp and River City Cheer doing day camps during the school closures. If you are needing a safe place for your children to be during the day while school is closed, we encourage you to look into those options.

If you have any additional questions, please contact District Office at 714-8888.
