Public Announcement

TCU Montgomery Indoor Pool suspended until Phase III of the ‘Stay Safe MN’ Plan

The Tri-City United School District is saddened to report that the TCU Montgomery Indoor Pool will be closed for the month of June due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. At the recommendation of Governor Tim Walz and the MN Department of Health, it has been determined to be unsafe to the community to open the pool at this time. We will continue to monitor the pool opening under Governor Tim Walz’s ‘Stay Safe MN’ Plan to determine the possibility of opening in July.

Connect with TCU Counselors and Social Workers

The TCU School Counselors/Social Workers have created a site to stay connected and provide students and families with a variety of resources during this period of distance learning.  They will be checking emails regularly from 7:30 AM - 3:30 PM, or if you want to speak over the phone or with a Google Meet video call, please reach out via email or complete a Counselor/Social Work Request Form available on their site to schedule a phone/video appointment.
