Student safety and student well being will always be the default when determining a course of action for our school. After considering current weather predictions from multiple weather agencies, communicating with our board of governance and considering our school's individual needs we will proceed Monday on a full day schedule.
The current AC unit project has been completed over the weekend and each of our classrooms have AC units. Additionally, we have smaller class sizes than most district classrooms.

We will be observing a Hot Day Schedule. Students will not be out on the blacktop area during recess and PE. Club TC students will have a modified schedule and do activities indoors and in the AC classrooms for the time being. Please plan to bring your students tomorrow, as you would any other regular school day. We will be making daily determinations regarding the school schedule and it will be communicated to you upon determination. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Bully Alert Week - September 8th - September 12th
Every year Tubman coordinates a week to highlight the important issue of Bullying. During this week, we have planned fun themes and activities that focus on this important issue. Our goal is to educate our students to be alert and to report issues of bullying to an adult. Through education, support and modeling bully free behaviors, we hope that all students will have a safe environment to achieve their best while at school. With the help and support of our students, parents, teachers and Tubman village as a whole we will: Stop Bullying at Tubman.
