Dear Parents,

During this unsettled and disturbing time, there are many questions. I want to address questions that we do have answers for.

 

GRADUATION

As of this time, graduations are continuing as scheduled.

 

SCHOOL EVENTS

There will be no school activities between now and Monday April 13. This includes the ACT, practices, rehearsals, or any other gathering. 

As of now, all events currently scheduled after April 13 are still scheduled.

 

MAKE UP TIME

The Governor has waived minimum instructional time as required by law. As a result, the next 4 weeks there will be no school. The week after that (April 13 – 17) was scheduled Easter Break, making 5 weeks of school students would miss.  Depending upon the course this virus takes, and should health concerns allow, we will have to consider returning to school on Monday April 13.  However, that decision has not yet been made.

 

The goal of this state-wide closure is to minimize contact and interaction with others. As a district, we will adhere to that when and where possible.

Please refer to the TPSD website (www.tpsd.org) and district Facebook page for updates.

 

Sincerely,

Philip Martin, Superintendent
