TTSD Community Newsletter

February 26, 2021

I begin today’s communication in deep reflection as Sunday, February 28, marks the one-year anniversary of the first positive case of COVID-19 in Oregon and as our nation surpasses the 500,000 mark for loss of lives. My heart is with everyone within our TTSD community and beyond who has suffered loss. I continue to be deeply humbled and grateful to our staff who are proactively connecting with and responding to our students and families as they navigate through these challenging times.

Today, Washington County moves into the “moderate risk” category. This is a strong sign of hope that our community continues to do the right things to fight the spread of infection. We continue to see more and more life return to our neighborhoods and to our schools. I am filled with pride watching our staff bring students back into our buildings. As Director of Student Services Carol Kinch shared with me this week, “You can tell the staff that are working with students right now by the big smiles on their faces.”

Next week is the start of one of our favorite times of the year. Beginning on March 1, TTSD elementary schools will begin online enrollment for our class of 2034! If you have a preschooler who will be five years old on or before September 1, 2021, please find additional information here. Complete Message Here

Three Rivers League Athletic Events Spectator Statement

As we embark on the first interscholastic sports competitions in almost a calendar year, we are excited to offer the chance for our student-athletes to participate in athletic competitions.

In preparation for the season, our principals, athletic directors, coaches, and other support staff have spent a great deal of time reviewing the guidance provided by the Governor, OHA, and OSAA and planning for our athletic events’ safe conduct.

Based on the restrictions placed on interscholastic activities as a result of the pandemic, the TRL has determined that only certified coaches, athletes, and approved event personnel will be allowed to attend contests in person. If unauthorized persons attend a competition, play will be suspended until that individual leaves the premises. Full Message and details

The Book Itch

By Vaunda Micheaux Nelson, offers a child's-eye view of a historic business, opened by the author's great-uncle in the 1930s, that played a key role in the civil rights movement. The picture book, illustrated by R. Gregory Christie, won a 2016 Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor. It highlights agents of social change such as Muhammad Ali and Malcolm X and discusses the assassination of Malcolm X and the unjust treatment of African-Americans. Parents should be prepared to talk about racial discrimination, the legacy of the civil rights movement, and the assassinations of people in the movement.” From Common Sense Media
