Reopening Report ------- Friday, August 13, 2021



The 2021-2022 School Year commenced this week. Trussville City Schools welcomed back thousands of students for what we know will be an incredible year of teaching and learning. We want to thank our students, parents, teachers, and staff for being phenomenal in helping us reopen schools under a new set of health guidelines. It truly takes a community effort to accomplish our purpose in educating all students in a safe environment. We couldn't do it without a strong team of teachers, administrators, and board members - along with parent and community support!


PAWS for a Cause Gala - Saturday, August 14, 2021

The 12th Annual PAWS for a Cause Gala will take place from 6:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 14, 2021, at the Trussville Entertainment District (101 Beech Street). This annual event brings the entire city together for the benefit of Trussville City Schools. From a silent auction to bingo, there's something for everyone. To top it off, one lucky winner will go home as the winner of the coveted "$10,000.00 Drawdown." See this page to purchase a ticket and for more information on the TCS Foundation PAWS for a Cause Gala.


The Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) provided the "Back to School Guidance 2021-2022" document for reopening Alabama schools. This is known as the "ADPH Toolkit." You can see the Toolkit in its entirety on the ADPH website.

We want to call your attention to the COVID-19 Exposure Notification for Parents and Guardians. This is page 15 of the toolkit. If your child is believed to have been exposed to COVID-19, we will let you know by sending this letter via email. We wanted you to see the letter ahead of time, so you can view it below or to go directly to page 15 in the Toolkit.

If you receive an Exposure Letter, you may need to keep your student home. Students who have been "fully vaccinated or previously diagnosed with COVID-19 in the last 3 months" may be exempt from quarantine.

As a reminder, if your child is sick or has COVID symptoms, please keep your child home. See the symptoms list below or page 9 of the Toolkit.

Thank you for your help and cooperation. We have had an outstanding three days of school and we are beyond thrilled to have the students back in our classrooms. Be careful this weekend and stay safe!
