    INTRODUCING OUR NEW TSAS LOGO

    When starting as the TSAS principal last year, I started my quest to understand TSAS and its beliefs and essence. One thing started to jump out at me. The logo was not of a Thunderbird or in a style that depicted what TSAS represents. I have spoken with others about the logo's origin and its importance to TSAS. I found that it had been gifted to TSAS by Matt Hamilton, TSAS’s artist in residence when he designed it. I continued looking for more history of logos used at TSAS. I found a native-designed Thunderbird on a TSAS document when cleaning out old files. I tried to track down its origin and artist, but with only one example and no real time frame of use, I could not reuse or give credit to the artist. When the school received its new school drums from Kevin Clevenger, I had a solution. Kevin was approached about designing a new logo for TSAS. After some discussion, the new logo was designed by Kevin. Kevin did a great rendering that showcased the spirit of TSAS. His original drawing was shared with Pacific Printing to be made into a Vector drawing for school use. We will be sharing order forms for new TSAS apparel with everyone soon.

    We are currently following the  CDC guidelines. The following information shows the safety procedures at each of the risk levels. The levels look slightly different from what the district had provided previously, but what we are doing for safety is equal to our mitigation strategies. We will be using three risk levels: high, medium, and low, which follow the CDC classifications. The mechanism we are using to base the risk level on for the school is the CDC website, COVID-19 County Check. I will be checking the website daily. I will adjust as soon as there is a change in the risk and inform parents of the change. 

    CDC Website halfway down is the COVID-19 County Check https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html
