A Message from the Superintendent
Dear Parents and Community Members,

Thank you!

Thank you students for adapting to your new learning environment, and working hard and studying outside of the classroom!

Thank you parents for the amazing support you’re providing your student(s), despite the challenges and stress around you!
 
Thank you teachers and support staff (many of whom have children of their own at home)
for rising to the challenges that our new teaching model and for working hard each day to enhance what we’re providing our students in distance learning.

Thank you to our team for feeding our kids every weekday. Our food service team is doing an amazing job and they're supported by our warehouse staff and members of our transportation team who are delivering meals to our neighborhoods! We’ve served over 46,000 FREE meals as of yesterday!

Thank you to our clerical and business office staff members and administrators who continue to keep our school district and schools functioning. 

And thank you to our custodial and maintenance staff for continuing to perform essential functions so our schools are ready when we return to traditional instruction!
 
The transition to distance learning has been a huge undertaking for all. We’re in this together and we’re stronger together. 
 
Thank you to everyone for their perseverance and partnership as we educate our students through distance learning! 


Sincerely,

Robert J. Leri, Ed.D.
Superintendent Chief Learning Officer
 
Kinder Previews are going virtual!

Do you have a child who is ready to start school in the fall?  


Give your child the outstanding education they deserve and secure their spot in our award-winning school district!


We have a Virtual TTUSD Kinder Preview “event” planned that will be led by our elementary school principals. Mark your calendars for May 12 and more info will be coming soon! 

 
No school on May 1

Friday, May 1 is a day off for our students where teachers will be collaborating and planning for the remainder of the school year. We want to provide our students with the best distance learning experience and education we can and this takes planning and refining and collaboration!

We strongly believe in continuous improvement and it is important for teachers and staff to have time to meet, plan, share best practices, collaborate, refine instructional practices to ensure we are meeting the needs of our students. This is as important as ever in our new distance learning model so we can finish this school year strong!  


(Please note: we will still be providing our free meal service on this day.)

 
Prevent the spread of COVID-19

(This information was created by the COVID-19 Health Literacy Project in collaboration with Harvard Health Publishing)


Stay home whenever you can, except to get medical care!

Stay at least six feet from other people, even if they don’t look ill.


Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Do so before you eat or prepare food, and after you sneeze, cough, blow your nose

or visit any public place. If you cannot wash with soap and water, use a hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol.


Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

The virus can last on some surfaces for several days. You can become infected if

you touch these surfaces and then touch your eyes,


Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.

Using alcohol solutions that contain at least 70% alcohol, or diluted household bleach

solutions, clean frequently used objects like phones, keys, tablets, doorknobs, and TV remotes.


Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your elbow.

Coronavirus is primarily spread through droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes near

others. Do not cough or sneeze into your hand.


Plan how to take care of yourself and your loved ones.

Older adults and people with chronic medical conditions are at higher risk and should consult with doctors about staying protected. Create a list of emergency contacts and designate space in your home for sick family members.

CENSUS 2020 -Your count matters
We understand that everyone is highly distracted with COVID-19, but we urge you to participate in the 2020 Census as it is extremely important to our community.

The results of the 2020 Census will help determine how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding flow into communities just like ours every year for the next decade. That funding shapes many different aspects of our Tahoe Truckee community. Respond now!
