TSD Fabric Masks Project from Holli Morrish:

We are looking for volunteers that like to sew!


Throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic many of you have reached out to TSD and other district officials asking how you can help!  Thank you for being amazing and caring so much for the students and families in our community!  As our school leaders plan and prepare for next school year, there are many unknowns.  We listen each day when Governor DeWine gives his press conference waiting for any insight as to what the future holds.  State and local officials have advised that we must prepare from several different possible school scenarios, including that students and school personnel might be required to wear masks to school.  Knowing that this is possible, we are launching a program that allows the community to help us in meeting our goals for the number of masks needed for every student and staff member.  Our goal is to have 2 for each person, so that while one mask is being cleaned, each person has another mask they can wear.  I have estimated that the district needs nearly 7000 masks.  Approximately 3000 youth masks, and 3800 adult masks.


We are asking our community to help us in sewing cloth masks and we will be collecting them throughout the summer at the Talawanda Board of Education.  We will begin collecting weekdays beginning May 18th between 9am-3pm.


Thank you!

Spring Pictures Update

Lifetouch sent the following update to Marshall.  As soon as we know when we are receiving the pictures, we will communicate with everyone.


We wanted to make you aware that due to COVID-19, we have had government-mandated shut-downs in some of our production facilities and social distancing protocols in others that have reduced our capacity for printing and shipping. Be assured that everyone who ordered pictures will receive one. However, the delivery of your pictures may be delayed.

From Our School Nurse:

Mrs. Johnson shared the following information from the American Academy of Pediatrics regarding children and wearing masks.


Tootles - I want to give you the opportunity to acknowledge how your child is being a PAX Leader at home.  Complete this form and let me know the positive things they have done while at home - this a great way to encourage the behaviors you want to see more of at home.  You will then receive an electronic tootle form in your email congratulating your child.  Tootle Form

Kindergarten Registration

We started collecting information about Kindergarten for next year before the school closings.  If we have not taken your information yet and you have a child who will turn 5 before August 1, please complete this form and we will email you further directions for registering your child for kindergarten.  


From the Transportation Department

This is a reminder that a new Transportation Request Form for each school year.  The form can be downloaded from the Talawanda Website for each child so that we can make sure that we have the most current contact information.  Please remember that babysitting arrangements need to be filled out on the Transportation Form as well because it doesn’t always carry over from year to year.  Thanks for thinking ahead to next year.  


Technology Update and Reminders

If your child is having issues with their iPad or ChromeBook, please let your child’s teacher know.  We are working on swapping out the technology for working devices as soon as possible.
