Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year at Tuscarawas Valley Local Schools! We are working hard to ensure a successful start for all TV students, and we trust the following information will be helpful in preparing for the opening of school.
The safety of our children, staff, and guests remains our top priority. News regarding COVID-19 and its variants, along with guidance and recommendations from the CDC, Ohio Department of Health, and other various health organizations infiltrates our homes and devices constantly. It has greatly ramped up in these weeks prior to the start of a brand new school year. Thanks to our students, families, and staff, Tusky Valley persevered through an extremely challenging 18 months. We will continue to do so, together.
We acknowledge all CDC guidance and recommendations regarding masks, vaccinations, etc., including the current CDC order requiring students and drivers to wear masks on school buses. Unless facial coverings are specifically required by the Governor, Tusky Valley welcomes children and staff members to make informed decisions in their best interest. Masks are welcomed, not required. We will also return to pre-pandemic seating and collaboration spaces with a continued common-sense focus on good cleaning, frequent hand-washing and use of sanitizer, and districtwide sanitization efforts. As always, we urge students and staff to stay home when feeling ill. It is important that we all remain diligent about our health and do our best to respect and protect the health of those around us.
Even when challenges come our way (and they likely will), we will make it a phenomenal year. It’s what our students deserve. It’s what our team does. It’s what our community expects.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions or if we can assist you. GO TROJANS!
For All TV Children,
Mr. Mark A. Murphy
