Tarvin Times

Sept. 9, 2021


What a great week of engaged learners! I love visiting classrooms, and students are excited to show me what they are learning. Shout out to the 5th grade for giving us feedback on traditions and events we should start at Tarvin. We will take their input to the leadership team and start making plans.

Together we can keep our students healthy and safe. If your child has a fever (100.0◦F or higher), please keep them home. If they have 2 or more of the following symptoms, please keep them home.

  • Symptoms include chills, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, trouble breathing, fatigue, headache, congestion or runny nose, muscle or body aches, new loss of taste or smell, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea.

We are doing our best here to sanitize, wash hands and keep masks on. Thank you for your assistance in keeping Tarvin safe and healthy.

Together in Learning,

Christy Hilbun
