Message from the Superintendent

Dear TTUSD Community,

It is my honor to share this year’s Teacher of the Year and Classified Employees of the Year with you.

This year, we did something different and implemented a peer nomination and selection process, so each of these employees was chosen by their peers! Congratulations to our employees of the year for these well-deserved awards. We appreciate all you do to positively impact our students.

Teacher of the Year

  • Craig Rowe, Truckee High School

Classified Employees of the Year

  • Hilary Jimenez, Wellness Specialist, North Tahoe High School

  • Maria Bribiesca, Custodian

  • Tichelle Criswell, Transportation

  • Melissa Giannetto, Clerical and Administrative Services (Transportation)

  • Lisa Weise, Food & Nutrition Services

  • Tom Mohun, Campus Monitor, Truckee High School

  • Mandy Karvonen, Paraprofessional Services (STEPP)

Spring Break is just a few days away, and it’s time for some rest and relaxation for our students, staff, and families.

TTUSD just received another supply of COVID-19 at-home antigen rapid tests from the State for our students. We want to make these available to our TTUSD families.

  • Elementary schools will be sending them home with their students.

  • Home test kits will be available at the middle and high school offices for any student or parent who would like one. Just stop by the office.

Be safe and enjoy your break.
