TSD has created a relief fund to support our students and families devastated by the catastrophic flooding wrought by Hurricane Harvey. We are reaching out for your assistance to help our 140 students and their families, each of whom are struggling in different ways, in response to the devastation they have experienced.
In response to many of you who are reaching out to TSD asking for how you can assist TSD students, families and others in the Deaf community who have been affected by the recent storm, we very much appreciate you contacting us with offers of support. Very soon, we will have identified and will post updates on our TSD homepage directing donations to directly assist affected TSD students and families.
TSD will have a 2-hour delayed opening tomorrow, Monday, August 28th. Austin area buses will be arriving two hours later than the pre-scheduled time. If your student does not ride a TSD bus, check with your local school district on their plans for Monday. Please be advised that at this time we have approximately 90 residential students who have returned.
Our 2017-2018 school year will begin on Monday, August 28, 2017. Registration/Move-In Day will be Sunday, August 27th from 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM in the Seeger Gym. [Click here for more information (English/Spanish)]
