District Announcements

Dear Tuslaw Families,

Paper copies of the Tuslaw School Opening Plan have been sent in the mail to families. These documents are also listed below for you to view.  Please review the documents and EITHER complete the digital form online or complete the hard copy and return it to Tuslaw before July 31st.
Tuslaw Local Schools will be offering two formats for learning. We will return to school in a traditional format, with appropriate safety measures, five days per week. We strongly believe the traditional school format is the best learning model for most students. Tuslaw Local Schools will also offer a virtual learning academy (online) learning option to families and students who are not able to, or choose not to return to the traditional format at this time.

Restart Slides

The information below will be arriving to Tuslaw Families in the Mail.

Below are links to complete the parent/student learning choice digitally. If done digitally the paper copy does NOT need to be sent to the school.

Bus Transportation 2020-2021 School Year

Dear Parents:

Due to the uncertainty of the requirements for bus transportation for the 2020-21 school year, I need to prepare for bus routes now. Unfortunately, I will no longer be able to accommodate every bus request. I need to know if your children need to ride the school bus from your Tuslaw home address if busing is available. I also need to know if they will not be riding the school bus. Please click the link below to fill out the following bus information so I can start planning now.

Thank you,

Linda Earp
Transportation Supervisor

Athletic Information

Dear Tuslaw Local School Parent/Guardian,

First of all, we hope this letter finds you all healthy and safe. During a “normal” end of a school year, we meet with students and discuss all of the possible grades 7-12 activities, clubs and athletics that are available for the 2020-21 school year.

With all of the “unknown” questions/answers, we believe it would be beneficial for us to offer contact information to all of our present head advisors/coaches. Please find listed below our athletic head coaches email addresses. A reminder we do abide and follow all County Board of Health/OHSAA and Governor DeWine’s guidelines. This would allow our school personnel to email out any updates/information on the upcoming timelines of any permissible activities. (ie – open gyms/conditioning/1st official practice dates/etc.)

Please remember to communicate with your daughter and/or son’s head coach with any questions or concerns.

Please stay patient and positive. We greatly appreciate the front line health care workers.
