Half-Day for TESD Emergency Preparedness Exercises

As part of our ongoing safety practices, TESD will be conducting a series of emergency preparedness exercises for staff in each of our schools. In partnership with local law enforcement, school staff in each building will participate in activities designed to enhance our readiness for the unexpected. 

On the designated date for your child’s school, students will be dismissed early so we may conduct the safety exercise with all school staff. Transportation will be provided. There will be no morning or afternoon kindergarten. A Child’s Place (ACP) will not be open in your child’s school on the designated safety exercise date. 

On each of the exercise dates, only the identified building will have an early dismissal. The other seven schools will remain open for regular school hours.  

The dates for each building’s exercise are listed below. We will send a reminder as the date for your child’s school approaches.
