Orchard Hills School News & Announcements

Orchard Hills will begin construction of Solar Panel installation in our parking lot on approximately September 18TH.  This is a district project that will result in long term cost savings for TUSD.

The solar panels will be installed in our main parking lot and on the playground.  We will be losing at least two rows of parking.  Our teachers will be parking on our playground and there will be a limited amount of parking left in the lot.  Please be prepared for this event by being very patient and following all procedures and those supervising the parking lot.  We will have additional supervision in the lot for the first couple of days so that parents and students can get used to the new routine.  For those of you who usually park and walk your student to the crosswalk, there may be no spaces available.  Please try to go through the drop off line and not plan on parking.  Students may not walk through the parking lot and construction zone ever!

Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
