Dear TSD Parents, Guardians and Caregivers, I hope you are enjoying the remaining days of summer and ready to begin a new school year. I wanted to share some important safety updates with you. Although we cannot erase what happened in Uvalde we can work together to ensure that our school is as safe as possible. On June 30, 2022, in coordination with the Texas School Safety Center (TxSSC), the Texas Education Agency (TEA) released the Required School Safety Action Steps This Summer that outlines immediate steps that schools are required to take to support the safety and security of our campuses.
