Principal Message


We had a great week! We look forward to spending one last week with the students before the Thankful Break. Thanksgiving is a time everyone shows their love and appreciation, their gratitude, for others and things. I want you to know that I am grateful for: Our staff, students, THE families, and my own family. It is with all of you that I find joy in being a principal. Thank you for trusting us with your children and choosing Tuscany as your school home.

Let's enjoy the week and we look forward to seeing everyone return on the 28th.

Also, on November 28, 2016, if you submitted a form, we will call your student in for the flu shot and return him/her to class. We are scheduled to give the flu shot between 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

If you have any questions, you can email our School Nurse, Mrs. Donna Hunsicker BSN, RN, CPN at

Please keep in mind, this flu shot is strictly voluntary.

Thank you,

Tara Bailey
