On Monday, Aug. 21 our region will experience a partial solar eclipse which will peak at 10:17 a.m. Although this is a spectacular event to witness, safety for you and our students is of paramount importance. Looking at the sun for any length of time without protection can result in permanent damage to your eyes. The only safe way to look directly at the sun or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as "eclipse glasses" or handheld solar viewers. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun; they transmit thousands of times too much sunlight.

 

Please view NASA's flyer regarding the eclipse for more viewing and safety tips.

In an effort to generate additional revenue, Twin Rivers Unified School District (TRUSD) is looking at how to better utilize many of its assets. To facilitate this process, the District is forming what is referred to as a "7-11 Committee." If you are qualified and would like to participate, we invite you to apply to be a member of the Committee.

 

The purpose of the committee is to review and analyze real property that is owned by TRUSD and to determine what real property could be designated as "excess" or "surplus" because it will not be needed for school purposes. The committee will then present a report to the Board of Trustees recommending uses for the surplus property or how to dispose of the property (e.g., sale, lease, etc.).

Three yellow buses rolled through Twin Rivers just before the winter break, loaded with boxes of food and wrapped gifts for 20 families in need. Also on board were Santa and Mrs. Claus, along with other volunteers from the Twin Rivers central office.

“Thank you TRUSD for the love ... we are so grateful and humbled by the gifts,” responded student Nani Poloai. “Maybe there really is a Santa Claus after all.”

The volunteers started their day at the Sacramento Food Bank where they picked up donations of fresh fruits and vegetables. Before deliveries began, the buses stopped by the district office to collect gifts for all members of the families that were on the routes.

The gifts were donated and wrapped by central office volunteers.
