Three Scenarios Considered for Minnesota Schools This Fall
Tri-City United Schools appreciates and understands the anxiety families and staff are feeling by not knowing what school will look like this fall. The truth is, we don't have any answers yet. Ultimately, the decision on whether students will, or will not, return to school depends on the spread of COVID-19 and the directives from the Minnesota Department of Health. Visit our Fall 2020 Planning page for more information.

- TCU Le Center, TCU Lonsdale, and TCU Montgomery selected as PLTW National Distinguished Schools for our Elementary Launch programming. We are 3 of only 404 elementary schools across the U.S. to receive this honor.
- TCU Le Center and TCU Montgomery were also selected as PLTW Distinguished schools for our middle-level Gateway program. We are 2 of just 176 middle schools across the U.S. to receive this honor.
The PLTW Distinguished School recognition honors schools committed to increasing student access, engagement, and achievement in their PLTW programs.
Due to the continued maintenance and repairs being conducted to the TCU Montgomery Indoor Pool, the TCU School District has made the difficult decision to have the pool remain closed for the summer. The TCU School District will begin to fill, heat, chemical balance and test the indoor pool, August 3th following the completion of the repairs and in preparations for the upcoming TCU Titan High School Swim Team season.
We intend to have the pool open for TCU Swim Team Practices the week of August 10th.
COVID-19 related closures are fluid. Reopening of school facilities and grounds are subject to Executive Order and Guidelines Mandated by MDE & MDH and are therefore subject to change at any time.
