IMPORTANT NOTICE: PLEASE READ

On Sept. 5, 2017, the Trump administration announced that it is terminating the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. In light of the announcement, we want to remind our entire community that Twin Rivers Unified is a safe haven school district that welcomes all students and families.

_____________________________________________

At the Jan. 24 school board meeting, our Trustees adopted Resolution No. 630, reaffirming our commitment to ensure that Twin Rivers Unified School District remains a Safe Haven—committed to the success of all students irrespective of their immigration status, ethnicity, race, religion, sexual orientation, ability, sex and gender identity, socio-economic status or beliefs.

Twin Rivers serves nearly 28,000 students that are as diverse as many communities in our nation, and I want to assure you that our staff works tirelessly to maintain a positive climate on every campus—an inclusive learning environment for all students.

Our country is the land of opportunity. Like our nation and state, opportunity is also the driving force in Twin Rivers. We are committed to the success of every student and providing opportunities for every child so that we, in turn, inspire each student to extraordinary achievement every day.

Yes, opportunities abound for every student in Twin Rivers:

  • New enrichment programs for elementary students

  • Field trips that support classroom instruction for all third, fourth, fifth and sixth-graders

  • Lego Robotics, public speaking contest, STEM Fair, sports camps and more

  • Band and choir programs

  • Abundant Career Technical Education Pathways and Partnership Academies

  • College Readiness, Free PSAT and SAT testing opportunities

As educators, we'll continue to strive to provide extraordinary opportunities for your child to be college and career ready. We ask for your ongoing support in your child's education by making sure they are in school every day, on time and ready to learn. 

We are TR!

Superintendent Steve Martinez
