To TCRCE Families:
Hello, everyone. I wanted to reach out regarding the development of our TCRCE school calendar for the 2020-2021 year. In a ‘typical’ school year, we would have already released our calendar for the following year. A key date in this regional calendar is the first day back for TCRCE students in September.
A complication in developing next year’s calendar is that we don’t know what September will look like in terms of the spread of COVID-19. We are aware that the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development is aiming to release a reopening plan for the end of July with Public Health approval.
I am reaching out to let everyone know that, if students are to return to school in September, the first day back for TCRCE students is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, September 8, 2020. I would again reiterate that this date is dependent on the larger reopening plan. Once the plan is confirmed, we will share a robust regional calendar for the year. In the interim, September 8 is our scheduled date for students to start.
Once again, thanks to our students and families for their dedication to at-home learning and to our staff for adapting quickly to continue providing a quality learning experience for our students.
Please enjoy your summer. All the best.
Dr. Chris Boulter
Regional Executive Director, TCRCE
