Winter has arrived and it is beautiful!!! There is nothing like the perfection of the clean, fresh snow and how it looks in the trees, mountains, and around the town. Tahoe is a magical place and one we are lucky to call “Home”. A few reminders for those families that are new to our winter weather and navigating the school procedures:
- Make sure your phone number and email are kept current as this is how you will be contacted and notified of Snow Days. If the district calls a Snow Day, school is cancelled and one day is added to the end of the school year. They only call Snow Days when the weather and conditions on the road are unsafe. You can also check in the morning online www.ltusd.org as they post it around 5:00 a.m.
- Make sure your child wears their winter clothing daily. All children go outside for all recesses unless it is RAINING or BELOW 10 degrees. This includes a warm jacket, snow pants, boots, and gloves. If you need help with obtaining these items, please let your child’s teacher or the Office know.
- Allow enough time to drive to school and arrive on time. The winter conditions cause slower travel time and occasionally you will have to use an alternative street. SARB is still in effect and tardies and absences are counted. Coming to school daily is one way that parents can insure their child a bright future. Show that education and attendance counts and matters!!
- Snow boots are not appropriate P.E. attire, so on the days that your child has P.E., please make sure they pack their tennis shoes in their backpack.
