Principal's Message

Welcome Back THE Families!
We are so excited to be back with our students.  This will be a fall like no other in the virtual format.  Our teachers have been working very hard preparing an enhanced virtual learning experience for your children.  We are looking forward to seeing the children learn and grow in this way.  
Chrome books will be available to all of our THE students.  If you did not receive one in the spring, we want to make sure you have one for the fall.  Terrace Heights distribution day will be Tuesday, September 1 from 8-11 am.  Please come by the school, so we can get a chrome book for your student(s).  We will be providing Parent Technology Nights on 8/26 and 9/2.  Information about these evenings can be found on our district website.
In the afternoons of our first two weeks of school, we will be conducting family connection meetings.  Your child's teacher will be contacting you to set up a meeting time.  This will be an opportunity for you to connect with your child's teacher, and ask any questions you may have as we move forward in the virtual learning format this fall.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns (573-7820).  We are here to help!  
Virtual Learning begins on September 8th.
Take care and be well!
Tami Scrivner

Safe Start Update (September 22, 2020)

Attention East Valley Staff & Families,  We continue to monitor our situation and are basing our return to hybrid or in-person instruction on the guidance we receive from the Yakima Health District. Based on preliminary discussions about the improvements that we’re seeing in the number of positive COVID cases in our county, we are hopeful that updated guidance will be issued from our local health authorities that allows us to start bringing more students back into our classrooms sooner than originally expected. We are currently working on a revised education plan with the Yakima Health District and plan to release our hybrid implementation model for our staff, parents and families in the next 10-14 days.  This plan will outline the logistics of bringing students back safely so that we are prepared to make a safe and smooth transition for our students, staff and families. We appreciate the patience and understanding that you have continued to show as we navigate this evolving situation.
