TTSD Community Newsletter

March 15, 2021

Dear TTSD Community,

This is a special Monday edition of our newsletter. With all the updates we continue to receive from the Governor’s office, Oregon Department of Education, and the Oregon Health Authority, we held our communication until today to best share any changes that impact our staff, students, families and community. Today’s newsletter will provide important updates for elementary, middle, and high school hybrid in-person reopening.

On Friday, we received notification of Governor Brown’s Executive Order No. 21-06 (here). While TTSD's return to hybrid schedule aligns in large part with the Governor's order, we are adjusting the elementary schedule as follows:

March 29: Preschool, Kindergarten, and 1st grade

April 1: Grades 2 through 5
