Message from the Superintendent 11/30/2020

The TASD School Board voted Saturday night to return to our in-person, hybrid model beginning tomorrow.  Cohort B should report in grades 7-12.  Parents are asked to remain vigilant about screening for symptoms and keeping children home if they are present.  Parents are also reminded that new DoH travel restrictions require anyone traveling outside of PA to undergo testing within 72 hours prior to return, or quarantine upon return.  If your family traveled outside of PA over the holiday, your child should not return to school until one of these requirements is met.

There will be a Fusion C3 student health screening this Friday 12/4 in the HS pool lobby from 9AM-12PM for registered students. The next health screening is scheduled for 12/18. Please visit the Fusion C3 webpage to sign-up.
