Don’t miss your opportunity to attend our TUSD Virtual Open House events taking place throughout January. We have a number of school events happening in the next 2 weeks. If you are interested in learning about a school, this is your opportunity to hear about the programs and school directly from the principal and teachers.  Each school will have an event specifically for people interested in their school.  Dates, Times, and Zoom links are available: Seniors, you can still schedule your yearbook photo session with Silhouette Photography 886-1710. We will have more details about our yearbook plan soon.

  • Students must wear a mask and only enter at their appointed time
  • Students will enter the Fine Art Building through the main entrance on the north side. Pictures will be taken in the Little Theater
  • Students will be required to maintain a 6-foot distance while entering and waiting for their turn
  • The photographer will tell students when to remove their mask, take the picture and then have them immediately put their mask back on
  • Chairs will be sanitized in between each session
  • Students must exit the building and campus directly after their picture is taken

We will have 2 photographer stations, each photo should take 30 secs, there are 10 lots for each time period, allowing for families to attend together.  Inside will be socially distanced markers for everyone to wait in a queue. Of course, masks will be required to enter and exit.

Yes, faculty and staff will need to sign up for an appointment as well.

No, faculty and staff will not have a separate time/day.

Please read this attached letter regarding the cancelation of the PSAT.  This impacts our juniors the most.  There is information on how students can still qualify for scholarships that are typically tied to this exam.  We also posted this letter on our school website.
