Tarvin Times

Oct. 8, 2021


We have finished the very first nine weeks at Nancy Tarvin Elementary today. You will have access to your child's report card on Wednesday, Oct. 13th in Home Access Center. It has been a great 9 weeks and we appreciate your support and for sharing your children with us!

At the board meeting last night, Dr. Gearing announced that we will be moving to the yellow phase for Covid protocols. This means we can host events on campus and allow volunteers. We still ask that you don't come to eat lunch since that is a time masks are off. Once we move into the green, then we can allow visitors for lunch.

I hope everyone has a wonderful long weekend as our staff is given the opportunity to do some new learning in areas they want to improve. This also brings more excitement and new ideas into the classrooms.

We will welcome students back on the 13th.

Together in Learning,

Christy Hilbun
