COVID-19 Update

The Towanda Area School District would like to make you and the public aware that an individual associated with the Towanda Elementary School has tested positive for COVID-19. We are working with the Department of Health with this situation. Due to our safety protocols and the decision of the family involved to self-quarantine last week, we are able to keep our schools open. We will continue to monitor the situation with the Department of Health and make any adjustment necessary.

Please help us by continuing to remain vigilant during this difficult time. Screen your children each morning, keep them home if they are sick, and communicate with us early regarding any potential COVID-19 situations relating to your family.

Pick 3 Free

Attention All Parents and Guardians: We have recently found out that even if you send your child to school with a packed lunch they can also receive fresh fruits, vegetables, and milk free of charge. Due to a recent USDA waiver that allows free meals for all students through December 31, 2020; students who bring their lunch from home can supplement their lunch with free healthy options. This is a great opportunity for parents to save time and money when packing lunches each morning. To qualify, students must select three of the five offered components, and one of those must be a fruit or vegetable.

TAES Laptops Going Home

Starting tomorrow Towanda Elementary School will begin to send home the laptops every day with the students. Our expectation is that your student will be responsible to bring their laptop and charger back and forth to school every day. We are beginning this process so that the students can become familiar with transporting their laptop and also to be prepared should the student need the laptop if the need to teach a school day virtually should be necessary. It is recommended that your student transport their laptop back and forth to school every day using a backpack. Please have a conversation with your student about their responsibility and for caring for their laptop. Please remind your student that the laptop should not be taken out of the backpack on the bus. Thank you in advance for your support and understanding.
