Early Release Canceled

Dear TCU Families,
When looking at the hybrid learning model and wanting to avoid losing student instructional time, the TCU School Board approved canceling the 2-Hour Early Release on Wednesday, Oct. 14th. Students will have a regular schedule that day with their normal start and end times. 
The school board will continue to look at the monthly early releases on an individual basis and make decisions accordingly. 

Thank you,

Lonnie Seifert, Superintendent
Tri-City United Schools



Estimadas familias de TCU, 

Al observar el modelo de aprendizaje híbrido y querer evitar perder el tiempo de instrucción de los estudiantes, los Directores de la Escuela de TCU aprobaron cancelar el Día de Salida Temprana de 2 horas el miércoles 14 de octubre.  Los estudiantes tendrán un horario regular ese día con sus horas normales de inicio y salida.  Los Directores de la Escuela continuarán observando los lanzamientos tempranos mensuales de forma individual y tomarán decisiones en consecuencia.

Gracias,
