IMPORTANT MESSAGE: Sub Shortage- Calamity Day Closing:


January 19, 2022


Dear Students, Families, and Staff,


Thank you for your continued patience and support as we work through the many challenges we face with COVID-19 and the recent Omicron strain of the virus.  We understand that the pandemic continues to be difficult for everyone to manage.  


Talawanda School District will be closed Thursday, January 20, 2022 and Friday, January 21, 2022.  These 2 days will be calamity days (just like a snow day).  TSD WILL NOT institute a remote learning plan during these two days.  Students and staff will return on Monday, January 24, 2022.  The extreme substitute shortage that the district is experiencing across all schools and departments is creating many challenges to school service to students and daily operations.  The shortages in combination with seasonal illnesses and COVID-19 cases/quarantines has forced the district to shut down our schools for the next few days (Butler Tech transportation is still available).


We have encouraged families throughout the pandemic to have a “PLAN B” in place for childcare, should the district have inclement weather or issues with COVID-19.  Now is the time to implement your family’s PLAN B.


Thank you again for your understanding and support during this pandemic.  We hope that this time can allow for people to recover from COVID-19 related issues, and that we can return to school well and ready to learn.


In Education,

Dr. Edward Theroux
