News Releases
Tigard-Tualatin School District schools and properties are closed - 03/21/20

In our continued efforts to do our part to keep our community, our students and families safe from the threat of COVID-19, all Tigard-Tualatin Schools (TTSD) and properties are closed through April 28, 2020. TTSD continues to work alongside and support our local and state leaders in this fight. These closures are in full support of the Governor’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” recommendations and follow the Governor’s Executive Orders dated March 17, 2020.

COMMUNITY/STUDENT USE OF PROPERTIES

It has come to our attention that community members and more specifically, young people are convening on our properties, our athletic fields, and playgrounds. It is critically important for the public to understand that the coronavirus continues to live on surfaces including playground equipment, athletic equipment, public seating areas and so much more. Until we receive information from our state and national health officials that we are no longer a community at risk of the spread of COVID, all TTSD properties will remain closed.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING COVID-19 RISK TO YOUNG PEOPLE

What is also critically important for the community to understand is although the effects of COVID-19 hits hardest on older and medically compromised individuals, COVID-19 does not discriminate. All ages are at risk of this virus, including young people. As of Friday, March 20, 2020, 7% of those that have tested positive for the virus in Oregon are 18 years of age or younger. Young people can also carry the virus not knowing they are infected. This can lead to the transfer of the disease to other members of the community as well as their loved ones. Young people are contracting the virus, experiencing its full effects to include hospitalization, pneumonia, permanent lung damage, and possible death.

As we head into spring break and continue to alter our lives to practice social distancing yet stay connected, we urge you to stay home and explore the many digital/virtual resources available to engage with family and friends. Reinvent playdates, social groups, and activities through these online resources.

REMINDER OF IMPORTANT PRACTICES AND RESOURCES

These measures will help stop the spread of this deadly virus and save lives. If you must go out in public, stay six feet away from other individuals and do not gather in groups of more than 10. Again, please continue to follow the live-saving guidance of the CDC by staying home, limiting or postponing in-person social interaction and continuing the ongoing practice of the promoted hygiene guidelines. 

 

Tigard-Tualatin School District to close schools through March 30, 2020 - 03/12/20

Tigard, OR. -- In response to the COVID19 public health crisis, the Tigard-Tualatin School District (TTSD) Board of Directors voted unanimously to close all schools in the district, effective immediately. Schools will be closed starting tomorrow and they will reopen on March 30 for licensed staff. Students and all school staff will return to classes on Tuesday, March 31, as previously scheduled. At this time, the Hibbard District Office, including our operations and facilities departments will remain open.

All extracurricular activities, sports, and other programming will be suspended until March 30. TTSD will continue to monitor the situation closely with guidance from the Oregon Health Authority and Washington County Public Health. Any new information will be communicated to students, parents, and community members when it is available.

“We understand the hardship this decision will cause for many of our families,” said Superintendent Dr. Sue Rieke-Smith. “Our Board leads this decision with the health and safety of our staff, students and their families as our top priority.”

TTSD schools will be open between 8 AM and 3 PM, Friday, March 13, 2020 for students to pick up their digital devices (grades 6 through 12) and other personal belongings. The District encourages students and their families to stay engaged academically during this time off. We encourage parents to read with their pre-K and elementary school children. All middle and high school students have access to take-home computers to use for academic work. District staff will continue to work to develop remote learning options in the future. 

TTSD is committed to providing meals for our students during this break. Tualatin Elementary and Metzger Elementary Schools will serve grab-and-go meals to include serving breakfast from 8:00 - 8:30 AM and lunch from 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM for district students PreK through 12th grade. There will be no dining inside the schools. 

As with any closure, please stay up to date with the district. School closure updates will be communicated via the Flash Alert system, the TTSD website, social media and mobile app.
