Tuscola CUSD #301 News





October 21st, 2020 - 

I am writing to inform you that we were notified that an individual at Tuscola High School tested positive. The Douglas County Health Department will be in contact with any person who is identified as being in close contact.

If you listen to the information disseminated, you know that the prediction is a spike in the number of cases. The school district will continue to be mindful of the situation. Having zero positive cases traced back to the school reassures me our efforts are working. COVID is a pandemic! People are going to get it. I would encourage you to continue with the measures you are taking to minimize your chances of contracting COVID. Everyone is working together to make to the best of a situation we have never been a part of before. Thank you for your efforts.

My last letter mention Michael Jordan as the greatest basketball player. He is! I have also given you a quote by rap artist Tupac. A certain head Tuscola High School Boys Basketball coach told me to stick to Tupac in my future letters. I decided in today’s letter I would go to my childhood and quote the great philosopher Kermit the Frog. Kermit would tell you during these times, “ Be thankful for the bad things in life. For they opened your eyes to the good things you weren’t paying attention to before.” Have a great day!
