Phase 5 of state re-opening guidelines will further reduce some requirements. If our area moves back to phase 3, the district will be required to close all buildings and we will move to our remote learning plan until we move back to phase 4.
TK Virtual School where students will have on line learning but still be a registered TK student.If your student is enrolling in TK Virtual School you must complete the enrollment survey by August 7th. If you choose the TKVS your student will remain a TK student and may opt in for in-person instruction for the Second Semester. Students are also eligible to participate in sports or other extracurricular activities as the district is able to offer. Once a student is enrolled in the TKVS they must stay enrolled for the duration of the semester.
