A NOTE FROM MS. GARCIA

Dear Parents,


We are excited to report that we will be distributing computers to Truitt face to face students on Tuesday, February 9th. All students should have received a permission slip. Please make sure you return your permission slip on Monday so your student can receive their laptop on Tuesday! Starting February 10th all face to face students are required to bring their laptop to and from school everyday.


On February 12th and 16th connect students can pick up school supplies at Truitt. Please check below for more information.


Please remind your student about the importance of wearing their mask at school. We are trying to keep all students and staff safe.
