  • ANNOUNCEMENT 4/27/17


    We have been informed that due to the construction on Route 309, traffic has been reduced to one lane, causing significant backups both north and south bound.  It is anticipated that traffic will open at approximately 2:30 PM today.  It is expected that this will cause significant delays for our students when departing at the end of the day.  Therefore, in order to alleviate some of the delay, the high school and middle school will dismiss at 2:00 PM.  When expecting students at home or bus stops today, please be aware that depending upon the situation, arrival time may be earlier or later than expected.  Thank you for your cooperation.

    TASD Superintendent
