From the Principal's Desk

February 15, 2021

Greetings FWAFA Family,

This message from Dr. Vaughan.

TCA+A Schools of TeSA and FWAFA will be closing schools for Tuesday, February 16 and Thursday, February 17, due to the continued dangerous weather conditions and rolling blackouts.

All TCA+A buildings will be closed and there will be no school for in-person nor at-home learning on Tuesday and Wednesday, February 16-17, 2021.

With a lack of reliable power for all involved, we want you to focus on being safe and warm as well as not further being a burden on the electric grid. The impacts of this weather could likely extend past Wednesday. We will continue to provide updates about the rest of the week as soon as possible to give everyone time to plan.

Thank you for your flexibility as we strive to keep everyone safe during this winter storm.

Stay warm!

Dr. Jackson
