A Message from Superintendent Ghysels

Dear TTUSD Community,

Please Stay Safe So We Can Stay Open!

It’s been two weeks since we reopened our schools. I have enjoyed visiting our schools and seeing our students engaged and safe in their hybrid classes.

I’m proud of our extensive safety measures. Our students and staff are doing well; please help us keep it that way.

Remember - what you (parents and students) do when you’re off-campus has a significant impact on our entire school community's safety and well-being. We’re all in this together. Please do your part! Mask up! Don’t get lax - take precautions. Don’t attend large gatherings.

If we all follow our safety and health protocols each day, regardless of our location, we will stay safe and stay open!

All of our actions truly make a difference and I thank you for being part of the solution.

Winter is here! We are currently evaluating and making plans on how we will handle snow days during the 2020-2021 school year. (See article below.) With our new educational models in place due to COVID-19, we may have the opportunity to implement district-wide distance learning in place of snow days, depending on the seriousness of the storm. We are looking at potential scenarios and what is involved, and we will have a plan in place by December 1.

Stay well!


Carmen Ghysels
Superintendent Chief Learning Officer
