A Message from the Principal

Dear Parents & Guardians,

I am definitely hoping that spring is on the way! I can’t wait to get our students back outside regularly for recess and gym. As the tricky weather continues, please be sure to have your child dressed appropriately.

As always, Tuscarora is seeking ways in which we can improve our school. If you have suggestions or recommendations, please never hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher, or myself. The easiest way to communicate with me is via email: tlong@k12.wv.us. We always welcome to new ideas and thoughts!

As mentioned elsewhere in the newsletter, we will be hosting some exciting events in the coming months, starting with our annual Dr. Seuss Day on March 1st. Our 1st grade concert will take place Tuesday, March 26th @ 6:30 at school. We hope that we will have many families join us for the concert!

Lastly, as of today, report cards for the 3rd 9 weeks will go home on March 26th.


Dr. Tyler Long, Principal
