Tahoe Valley School has been taking on the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and working hard to figure out solutions to each and every hurdle. We are currently open utilizing Phase 1 limitations of the district Pandemic Reopening Plan. Each Phase will be in effect for 6 weeks. At the end of 4 weeks, the district will re-evaluate the current county measures to see if we are able to move into the next phase. We will then have a two week window to ready the school and community for the next phase. Each phase is based upon CDC, State, and county mandates and guidelines to ensure the safety and health of all staff, students, and families.
The school custodial staff and volunteers put the time the school was closed, during the quarantine and summer, to excellent use. We were completed many, many projects that we have wanted to but have not had the ability nor time. We have a new Family Literacy Garden at the entrance to the school. There are sitting benches, trees, plants, and of course BOOKS! Take the time to sit, relax, grab a good book and help support the reading abilities of our youngest students. The Golden Norwegian Maple in the center of the garden is dedicated to Marianna Zepeda, one of our 4th grade students whom we lost a year ago to Leukemia. The bright yellow leaves remind us of Marianna’s bright smile and sunny disposition. She was never seen without a smile and a warm “Hello”. She will be missed, but not forgotten! This project was created with the help of Lowe’s Toolbox for Education and Tahoe Valley PTA. Also the volunteers: the INCREDIBLE Mr. Glen, Mario Alcala, and Jim Grubbs. Our own Mr. Gilberto also lent a hand digging and laying the pathway. Mr. Glen designed and built the new seating heater cover in the front foyer. Our stage area was just remodeled and increased, new paint throughout the building, new door sweep, and the front planters were completed. We are ready for the staff and students. Come on in!!!!
Tahoe Valley is still looking for some donors to support our last project for the school. If you would like to donate any amount of money towards it, please contact the front office.
