• Dear Terramar Community,

    First, we would like to express our gratitude for your flexibility and understanding as we work together to ensure that the safety of our students and staff remains a top priority for Terramar and the District.

    We had 418 students attend school today. All students and staff were successfully relocated to Christ’s Church of the Valley (CCV) for the school day. Learning is taking place within dedicated spaces. Instruction began immediately throughout the CCV site for the primary grades, and by lunch time, all grade levels. Our Terramar teaching and support staff are very resourceful. I assure you, today was an educational day in which learning was taking place. We hope to see all of our Terramar students tomorrow as it is an instructional day.

    Students were provided a sack lunch as a menu replacement and recess time outside. We want to thank the CCV staff and volunteers for all their hard work and generously providing our school staff with a free lunch and Circle K for donating bottled waters to students and staff.

    Tomorrow we are returning to CCV where instruction will be a prime focus for the entire school day. It is our hope that your child returns. We are asking students who typically walk to school or are dropped off to continue this practice tomorrow morning, in order to ensure an accurate accounting of students. Students should check in at the multi-purpose room where they will join their classroom teacher. District will provide busing from Terramar to CCV.

    We deployed the following efforts today at Terrramar Elementary School:
    • Mr. Russ Lindsey of AccuClean took five additional air samples to have the indoor air quality tested
    • Drywall repairs in classrooms continued
    • The exterior block walls were tested for water intrusion
    • The outside air vent covers were sealed
    • Outside windows were sealed to protect them from the impending rain as a test to see if this creates a better condition
    • Proposals were received to evaluate downstairs flooring replacement
    We will communicate all updates to our Terramar family as new information is provided tomorrow. A contingency plan for our students has been developed that includes the option of keeping our students at CCV for the remainder of the week. This will be determined if more time is needed for building assessments and remediation.

    Thank you for your cooperation while we resolve this issue and keep our students safe and learning.
