Message from the Superintendent

Dear Parents and Community Members,

We launched a new and innovative way of teaching and learning at TTUSD, and in a very short period of time. I am so proud of how our teachers and students have embraced our new learning model and the creativity of our team to provide quality, engaging learning online.  

I wish we knew what lies ahead, but we don’t. COVID-19 continues to spread in our county, our state, and the country. We originally told you that school would be closed until April 3, 2020, however, we don’t know how long we will be under the Governor’s stay at home order. We all need to prepare ourselves this public health order could go on for some time. At this time, it clearly isn’t realistic to re-open our schools by April 3. 

The health and safety of our students is a responsibility we take seriously. We are in constant communication with the Placer County Office of Education, Placer County Public Health and statewide education leaders on how we can keep all who are part of our learning community safe in the midst of this growing health crisis. 

Late yesterday, all Placer County School Superintendents agreed that all schools in Placer County will be closed at least until May 1, 2020, to slow the spread of COVID-19 to the maximum extent possible. This decision was supported by the Placer County Health Officer and the Placer County Superintendent of Schools. We plan to reassess in April. We realize the huge impact this has on everyone, parents, students, staff and our community. We all want students back in school and for our communities to return to normalcy as soon as possible. But, not at the risk of their health and safety. This is a public safety crisis and it’s critical we all do our part to stop the spread of the COVID-19. We will continue to keep you informed as we learn more, but for now, please plan on our school closures being extended an additional month with distance learning continuing.
