Superintendent Message: Jan 12th Letter to Families and Caregivers

Dear Families and Caregivers, It’s hard for all of us, parents, teachers, students, staff and administrators to watch the nightly news. We all expected to see increases in COVID after the holidays, but the quick spread of Omicron has surpassed our expectations. Everyone at TSD is working hard to keep our campus community safe. We have numerous testing teams that are screening both staff and students on a regular basis.

Superintendent Message: Jan 3rd Letter to Parents, Caregivers and Staff

Dear Parents, Caregivers and Staff, The first order of the day is to welcome you all back and wish you all a Happy, Healthy and Safe New Year.  As we anticipated prior to the break, the surge of the omicron variant during the holiday break created a perfect storm for many of you, your families, our school operations and clearly our nation as a whole. It’s not how we hoped to start the new year, but as a team we can get through this!   At this time we have 16 staff with confirmed positive COVID and an additional 8 reporting exposure.  This is clearly going to impact all departments.  HR is tracking the dates of the confirmed positive staff to determine the length of quarantine.  Remember that the quarantine time has changed from 5 days for asymptomatic individuals and remains 10 days for those with symptoms.

Superintendent Holiday Message

Dear Staff and Families, As we conclude 2021, I want to take a moment to express my gratitude to all of you for making TSD an amazing place for our students to learn, grow and belong. We are a community with many gifts and talents, which we
share daily with one another and most important, our students.
