Please call the school office at the school located within your attendance area to register your child.  If you are unsure of which school attendance area you live in, please call Petermann Transportation @ (513) 273-3150 for verification on which school your child will attend.

After enrollment forms are completed, parents must furnish their child’s certified birth certificate, immunization records, certified-court stamped divorce decree with custody papers (if applicable), copy of parent(s) driver's license, and proof of residency in the Talawanda School District to complete their child’s Kindergarten enrollment. 


Illness Protocol & Backup Plans- Ms. Hansel

TSD Families:


Thank you to our staff for their commitment to the district, our schools, and our students as we have been working through issues with seasonal illness and the sub shortages we still face in our community and county.  We appreciate your flexibility and willingness to continue to pitch in and cover in all areas.


Thank you to our parents/families for your continued patience, flexibility, and support.


We just want to remind everyone that the cold/flu season is not over yet.  We anticipate that we will continue to experience shortages with subs as we work our way through this.  Please continue to have a backup plan for the possibility that we may need to close bus routes temporarily, we may have to combine classes, close grade levels, or even schools on occasion due to the severe shortage of subs.


Please remember to continue with all of the health and safety measures as we continue to navigate a post-pandemic world.  Hand washing is a simple strategy and very effective to ward off illness and the spread of illness.  If your child becomes sick, please keep them home.  This will help us all to reduce the spread of illness.


Collecting Coats - Mrs. Pike, School Social Worker

If you have any gently used coats you would like to donate - Kramer will take them off your hands! Coats will be kept on hand to give to students needing a coat for cold weather and/or recess.


Yearbook Orders

We are now taking yearbook orders for this year.  The deadline is April 7, 2023.  The cost is $15.

Yearbook ID Code: 7399323

Contacting Legislators

Please consider taking a few minutes to advocate for fair school funding for Ohio.  The state of Ohio's funding for public schools has been found unconstitutional multiple times.  I will be reaching out to our legislators and please consider taking a few moments to do the same. 


Please consider writing to our Ohio Board of Education, and other state leaders and elected officials.  Check out the talking points and letters we've shared on our district website.
