The Turkey Valley Elementary students were excited to return to school to find a large portion of their old playground had been replaced with a brand new one. This project was made possible by many years of fundraising at the Little Trojan Relays, Box Top and label collections and other various events in past years. The Turkey Valley Education Foundation (TVEF) helped fund this with a $10,000 donation toward the project. The Lawler Lions, led by Roger Dreckman, graciously volunteered time, equipment and expertise to install our playground over the summer. Other key volunteers included head custodian Joe Pinter, elementary playground committee members, some high school students, and various community members. The students are eagerly exploring the various pieces of equipment and loving recess time even more. Thank you to everyone for making this dream possible! #TVPride

It's Friday and school starts Monday. The teachers and staff are excited to see everyone Monday morning. A few reminders, all students should be wearing a mask on the bus and when arriving at school. We will wear masks when we cannot social distance. Also, the drinking fountains are turned off, but we have added bottle fillers throughout the building. As we've mentioned before, we've had to make a few changes to our Return to Learn Plan. They are noted on the district's FAQ page on COVID-19. The big one has been going back to an 8 period day at the high school. We could not come up with an acceptable way to do the schedule without giving up a lot of opportunities for our students. Here's the link to our FAQ page:https://docs.google.com/document/d/1h6UUIX3oHwoRImty7G6ZmgQGdnIGUy5Bfu3jSDXdByc/edit Also, you can submit a question here:https://forms.gle/L5i2e6P6UUNNat1p7 Looking forward to a great year!
