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.

Safety Awareness

Mission Statement:  90% of all accidents are caused by doing unsafe acts!

If you have any Safety issues or concerns please contact Lisa Vaskas ( and John Shepulski ( or

  • Be on the lookout for school zone signals and ALWAYS obey the speed limits.
  • When entering a school zone, be sure to slow down and obey all traffic laws.
  • Always stop for school busses that are loading or unloading children.
  • Watch out for school crossing guards and obey their signals.
  • Be aware of and watch out for children near schools, bus stops, sidewalks, in the streets, in school parking lots, etc.
  • Never pass other vehicles while driving in a school zone.
  • Never change lanes while driving in a school zone.
  • Never make U-Turns while driving in a school zone.
  • Never text while driving in a school zone.
  • Avoid using a cell phone, unless it is completely hands-free, while driving in a school zone.
  • Unless licensed to do so, never use handicap or emergency vehicle lanes or spaces to drop off or pick up children at school.


Safety tip of the month:

Please use extra caution when the crossing guards are in their designated areas.  Its of high importance to STOP at all crosswalks and to follow the appropriate speed limits through the high traffic areas around the school zones.

With active supervision and some basic safety tips, every day at the playground can be a walk in the park.


The Hard Facts

Falls are the most common type of playground injury, accounting for more than 75 percent of all playground-related injuries. Lack of or improper supervision is associated with approximately 45 percent of playground-related injuries.


Top Tips

  • Actively supervise children on playgrounds. It won’t be hard – they’ll probably be calling for you to watch them climb, jump and swing.
  • Take your kids to playgrounds with shock-absorbing surfaces such as rubber, synthetic turf, sand, pea gravel, wood chips or mulch. If your child falls, the landing will be more cushioned than on asphalt, concrete, grass or dirt.
  • Dress appropriately for the playground. Remove necklaces, purses, scarves or clothing with drawstrings that can get caught on equipment and pose a strangulation hazard. Even helmets can be dangerous on a playground, so save those for bikes.


Teach children that pushing, shoving or crowding while on the playground can be dangerous.
