Road Construction Notice

Road Construction Notice – September 22, 2017

Dear Parents/Guardians,

The Tanque Verde Unified School District was just made aware that a resurfacing project on Tanque Verde Rd. between Tanque Verde Loop Rd. and Wentworth Rd. will begin on Monday, September 25 and end on October 20, 2017, to include the following active roadwork periods:

Monday, September 25 – Thursday, September 28, from 5:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

  • Removal of pavement markings, crack sealing, patching, other preliminary work

Wednesday, October 18 – Friday, October 20, from 5:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

  • Application of surface treatment, restriping of road, addition of pavement markings

This section of roadway involves access to Emily Gray Jr. High School (EGJH), Tanque Verde Elementary School (TVES) and TVUSD Transportation. We DO anticipate delays to bus routes and parent drop-off and pick-up throughout the district.

You can help relieve the anticipated traffic congestion with the following actions:

  1. Utilize the EGJH student drop-off loop located behind the district office on Tanque Verde Loop Rd., and approach via Speedway Blvd/Tanque Verde Loop Rd.
  2. Utilize Broadway Blvd. or Speedway Blvd. to Wentworth Rd. as an alternative route to TVES.
  3. Utilize the school bus if there is a pickup in your neighborhood. Bus routes are posted on the district website. *If you are not a prior bus rider, please contact Transportation to make arrangements in advance. A green transportation card is required.

 Bus Riders - Please follow the regular bus route schedules and anticipate that buses may be delayed at both pick-up and drop-off locations. Students should still arrive 5 minutes before scheduled stops.

The District is attempting to contact the Pima County Department of Transportation (PDOT) to encourage scheduling their work around our school start/release times and to utilize the scheduled Fall Break (October 9-13), however, the information posted is the current construction schedule, as per their notice dated September 21, 2017. We will provide any updates as they become available.

Thank you for your patience during the PDOT construction project. Please continue to exercise caution and watch for students, pedestrian and bicycle traffic in the construction area.

Preschool Screening Notice








On Wednesday, September 27, 2017, from 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM, personnel from the school district and the Arizona Early Intervention Program will conduct a preschool screening at the Tanque Verde Unified School District Administrative Office, 2300 N. Tanque Verde Loop Road, Bldg.1, for children from birth through five years of age. The screening will be held on an appointment basis and a limited number of reservations will be made. Another screening date will be scheduled if necessary.


The district will provide direct screening services for children who reside within

its attendance boundaries. Verification of district residency will be required.

Specifically, screening assistance will be provided in those areas which may

require the child to receive special education services. The areas screened will be vision, hearing, cognitive abilities, motor skills, speech and language, as well as social and self-help skills. We especially encourage participation by children under 3, as every effort is made to provide any needed services by the third birthday.


If, after the screening, there is reason to suspect a possible disability, information will be provided on infant/toddler services or further evaluation by the school district for 3-5 year-olds.


Parents of 0-5-year-old children who would like more information or who would like to make a September 27, 2017 screening appointment are asked to contact the District Special Education Office at 749-5751, X 4203, through Monday, September 25, 2017 by 4:30 PM.
