Correction from earlier today regarding registration. As we prepare for busses back to full capacity, and the addition of new drivers, we have realized the need for additional time to create and practice our bus routes. If parents could please work to complete registration by this Friday, it would be doing us a big viking favor. This will let us know who needs to be on a bus route. Please log into skyward family access, and complete by Friday, August 6th at 4 pm. We apologize for the incorrect information this morning.

A huge THANK YOU to Maureen Gilbert for spending two days with the TVES students during their P.E. classes last week! Mrs. Gilbert is part of the disability resources and educational services department at the U of I. She also oversees the wheelchair basketball and track athletes. Students learned about the wheelchairs, how the athletes play the game, and were able to try the wheelchairs out for themselves. They learned how to move, turn, stop, shoot, dribble – and had an amazing time! No one wanted class to be over and all asked when they could try this again.

At Tri-Valley our goals are to maintain access to in-person instruction, experience spring sports that were completely lost last year, have concerts, the high school musical, and an authentic graduation for our seniors and families. Please remember, if you do not feel well, the most important thing you can do if you do is stay home and get tested. The rapid Covid test is readily available for anyone symptomatic. It is really important to know, we see symptoms presenting like typical spring allergies (commonly scratchy throat, runny nose, congestion, or headache), as opposed to just fever, cough, or loss of sense of taste or smell. We can do this #togetherTV3!

Coming to the TVHS football game tonight? Please wear a mask and social distance. Also, please park in our parking lots and not on the grass. Game on!! Go Vikings!!!
We have seen an increase in Covid cases and exposure over the last few days at Tri-Valley. Please help us by monitoring symptoms and NOT sending students to school that are symptomatic. It is hard to distinguish symptoms sometimes, so please err on the side of caution.
Do you have some sweet wheels you'd be willing to share? The HS is looking for a few golf carts for our Homecoming Procession at this Friday's football game. If you would be willing help, please contact Shari Riley (email@example.com, or 378-2911). Thank you!
The Battle of the Bands will be streaming on VIB on Friday at 1:20.
Please continue to be diligent about self certification. We’ve had a few positive covid cases this week. If you or anyone in your family is symptomatic, stay home!!
Our calendar for next school year is approved! See the 2021-2022 school calendar here. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1JqYt2P9-NsME7vmr54rde_eUUS3thmqT/view?usp=sharing An e-mail will follow.

Just in the past 3 years our students have earned 1780 college credit hours, and our families have saved over $300,000 in tuition costs! #togetherTV3
Reminder! Complete self checks and do not send anyone to school that has covid related symptoms. If anyone at home has symptoms, please keep everyone home until a negative test or alternate diagnosis is established. We need everyone to be on board.
Tri-Valley Families: Kindergarten screening will begin the week of March 1st - March 5th. These screenings help get an accurate number for class sizes in our Kindergarten rooms for next year. As of right now, we have 50 students signed up for screening. This is a low number compared to years past. As a result, we are looking for anyone that has not signed up for kindergarten screening to please call the elementary office to set up a screening appointment. Eligible students must turn 5 on or before September 1st. If you or anyone you know with kindergarten age students has not signed up yet please encourage them to call 309-378-2031 and we will get them set up for screening!
Due to the forecast and current conditions of rural roads, Tri-Valley will be fully remote again on Tuesday, February 16th, 2021. We hope our early announcement helps families plan and prepare. See you Wednesday! A notice from Dr. Mouser can be viewed here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mICJmre817I&feature=youtu.be.
Out of an abundance of caution, Tri-Valley will be canceling in-person learning for tomorrow, February 15th. The forecast shows a combination of dangerous wind chills, snow accumulation, and blowing snow. We will be utilizing a remote learning day. Stay warm and stay safe.
Pre-school and Kindergarten screening will take place March 1st-March 5th at the elementary school. If you have not registered or know someone that still needs to register please call the office at 309-378-2031 to schedule a time!
We are ready for another great week at Tri-Valley. It is more important than ever that EVERYONE conducts daily symptom checks, and stays home if ill (or family member is ill or getting tested). DO NOT be the person that sends a sick child to school. Our success depends on everyone making good decisions. Many pediatricians are now offering PCR tests with quick turnarounds (an hour). That's a game changer!! If you're not sure about a symptom, please be cautious and STAY HOME. Protect our students and staff!!! #togetherTV3
Congratulations to the TV Speech team for a great showing at Regionals on Saturday. Seth Coughlin represented TV in Impromptu speaking and ended his season with an 8th place showing. Lauren Christopher broke to finals and placed 5th in Informative Speaking. Charlotte Watson (Extemporaneous Speaking) and Kaitlyn Jones (Humorous Interpretation) both placed 3rd and advanced to Sectionals next Saturday. Also advancing to Sectionals is the Humorous Duet of Kaitlyn Jones and Anthony Decker by placing 2nd. Great Job to everyone! I am very proud of you all!!
How do we decide to cancel school if the weather is bad? An update from Dr. Mouser is here.... https://www.tv3unit.com/post/2014/11/11/baby-its-cold-outsidewill-we-have-a-snow-day
Reminder: Tomorrow we bring back ALL students 5 days a week. It is more important than ever that EVERYONE conducts daily symptom checks, and stays home if ill (or family member is ill or getting tested). We can do this together!
Tri-Valley CUSD #3 will be IN SESSION today 1/26/21. We've been out all morning and while most roads are salted and improving, there are a a few rural roads that are still quite slick. Drive slow, proceed with caution, take your time, and be careful. Our busses may be a little late in some instances as we carefully move through our routes.
Last night our board of education approved a recommendation to have ALL students return on February 1st. Students that chose remote learning for this 9 weeks will remain remote. However, those in 7th-12th grade that have been blended to this point will begin daily in person attendance on Monday, February 1st, 2021. Dismissal times will remain unchanged to allow our staff time to work with remote or quarantined students, and to provide additional planning time. A video outlining this decision and associated rationale can be found here https://www.youtube.com/watch?hd=1&v=4yzB-A0ukOg&feature=youtu.be. I ask that ALL parents view the video to hear about updates, changes, and protocols moving forward. Go VIKINGS!!!!
We’ve had a great week back! Please help us by keeping children that are symptomatic home with all siblings. Also, if anyone in the home is being tested due to suspicion of COVID, please keep everyone home pending results. We need everyone on board! #togetherTV3
Tri-Valley is ready to start school in person next week! We are happy to announce that the quarantine timeline has been shortened to 10 days. More information will be e-mailed to parents. If your child has been diagnosed with Covid-19 over break or is considered a close contact, please consider filling out this form to help us plan for the coming week or e-mail our nurses. We want to get off to a healthy start!! #togetherTV3 https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1AAvMtEE4LdzNTQB-gn9Q8V0yjSTmFIIFDvbgfpiLw6U/edit

So....What's the plan for Tri-Valley next semester?? Dr. Mouser outlines the plan for January and beyond in this link https://bit.ly/3nvrEEA. Building specific information will follow.
The Tri-Valley Speech Team has been very busy this fall! We have “attended” 7 virtual tournaments that consist of both video submissions and live zoom competitions. Beginning in October with two early bird tournaments at University High School, the Tri-Valley team had Molly Klessig (HI) place 11th and Charlotte Watson (EXT) place 8th.The following weekend Lauren Christopher (INFO) and Seth Coughlin (IMP) both placed 4th, Kaitlyn Jones (HI) placed 3rd and the Duo of Kaitlyn Jones and Anthony Decker placed 1st. November brought 3 tournaments with Seth Coughlin placing 4th at one and 6th at another while Kaitlyn and Anthony’s duo placing 4th at all 3. The first meet of December was a gigantic accomplishment for our team! Charlotte Watson placed 3rd, the Duo of Kaitlyn Jones and Anthony Decker took 4th, Lauren Christopher and Kaitlyn Jones each brought home a 5th place and Seth placed 6th in JV. These placements awarded the Tri-Valley Speech Team with a 5th place overall in the limited entry division!! We ended December with Charlotte placing 4th and our Duo (Kaitlyn and Anthony) placing 3rd. We have many meets to go with Regionals beginning in February. These kids are working hard and really doing a great job. If anyone would like to join our team- it is never too late. Just email Mrs. Marcotte and we can discuss where you would like to participate. Great Job TV Speech Team- I am very proud of you!!!
Here we come!!! Reminder: please have donations for the food pantry outside at 2:15. Our busses will head out soon!
Reminder: Downs Food Pantry Pick Up Tomorrow! As previously e-mailed, Tri-Valley busses will be collecting items for the Downs Food Pantry tomorrow (Thursday, December 10th) after school on our bus routes. Please have all items outside and ready at 2:15 pm. Some of our rural routes will be picking up items as students are dropped off, while some of our busses will be making a second pass between 2:30 and 3:00 pm. We look forward to stocking the food pantry for the Tri-Valley community #togetherTV3. See you tomorrow afternoon. Tri-Valley Administration
After talking with the Downs Food Pantry, Tri-Valley CUSD #3 has decided to once again run our busses to collect food and household items for those in need. It is important to recognize that our food pantry serves the ENTIRE Tri-Valley school district, and we want to help! Our amazing transportation department and bus drivers have agreed to run a 2nd afternoon route on Thursday, December 10th to collect goods for the food pantry. After all bus riders are dropped off at home, the busses will return to Tri-Valley, collect teacher and staff volunteers, and then head back out to collect as much as we can for our community in our empty busses. Please leave your donations at each bus stop, or at the end of your drive, and watch for our busses to return to gather all that we can. In fact, feel free to cheer us on (socially distanced and in masks of course). A few of our rural routes will receive additional information related to donations in the next few days. We look forward to stocking the Downs pantry for our Viking community, and we look forward to seeing you Thursday afternoon. Items requested by the food pantry have been e-mailed.
Back in school today! Please complete the symptom self check. If anyone in your home is exhibiting symptoms, please keep kids home. We can’t wait to see students today. Go Vikings.

We have continued to see increases in positive cases of Covid-19 and quarantined students and staff over the last few days. Our local realities coupled with county metrics have forced us to extend our remote pause through December 7th. Tri-Valley will have no in-person instruction between now and December 7th, but will provide remote learning daily. Our building principals and teachers will be following up with further information. We apologize for the inconvenience, but recognize the need to be cautious in our approach to moving forward while considering the safety of our students and staff. We hope to resume a regular schedule on Monday, December 7th.
Remote Pause Lunches are being offered to all enrolled Tri-Valley students. Lunch is free for ALL students for the entire year. By choosing to receive lunch from the Tri-Valley food service department you are helping to create and sustain jobs in our district, and getting healthy food that fuels students for learning! Complete the online form: https://www.tri-valley3.org/remote-learning--30
Remote Pause Monday-Friday November 16-20. We are disappointed to inform you that due to increasing county metrics related to Covid-19 and our local metrics in our district, we will begin a remote pause next week for the duration of one week. Monday, November 16th will be a remote planning day with no remote instruction. Tuesday-Friday Tri-Valley will be providing remote learning as done on Wednesdays to begin the year. A deeper explanation can be found in a video created by Dr. Mouser that was e-mailed to all district parents.

We want to thank you for your continued support of Tri-Valley during these unprecedented times. We are looking forward to opening our buildings to our students for the start of school. However, with the guidelines from ISBE, IDPH and the ongoing construction of our high school, we have decided to not allow any facility reservations for non-school teams and organizations during the first semester. We will look at guidelines in January and send out new communication at that time if we feel it is safe to open to outside groups. We understand this may be an inconvenience to many groups that have used facilities in the past and we hope by letting you know in advance this will allow you the opportunity to find alternate facilities.

Students may return to school on Tuesday, March 31st based on the information we’ve been given.

Any students that need to pick up materials or devices from school can do so on Monday, March 16th from 10am-4 pm. Devices will be made available to those that may need them. Please contact building principals if you need to utilize a school device during this time. In summary: No school for students March 16th through March 30th.
