Dear Tanque Verde Unified Parents and Guardians,
You may have heard that last night groups representing Arizona’s educators announced the results of a vote to conduct a statewide teacher walk-out. Organizers have stated that teachers throughout the state will continue walkins next week on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, during which time school will continue normally. A statewide walkout is planned for Thursday, April 26th.
As of now, it is unconfirmed how this will affect schools in our district. School and district leadership are working to determine the impact on our TVUSD school operations. If we have too few teachers remaining to safely supervise our students, we will more than likely close the schools.
In the event we are unable to keep our schools open, we will use multiple modes of communication to alert families of the closures. Please make sure that your phone numbers and email address are current in our student information system. Contact your school site if any updates need to be made.
It is our hope that teaching and learning will continue through May 23rd as planned. We will advise you of additional information as it becomes available.
The most current and accurate information will be posted on the district website at www.tanqueverdeschools.org/SuperintendentInfo.aspx, on the District’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/TanqueVerdeUSD/, and will be sent by email via Constant Contact to families and staff members. Information and FAQs will be updated on the website as information becomes available.
Thank you for your continued support.
Dr. Scott Hagerman
Tanque Verde Unified School District
