Tiospa Zina Tribal School has moved their start date to September 14, 2020. This move is to ensure that all students have WiFi in their homes prior to school starting. SWO and The Tribal Education Department are working hard to get WiFi installed in homes who do not have it. We will be providing more information to our families as we continue to finalize which students are in Group A and Group B, along with other important "Safe School Start 2020" information. Please check your mail, visit our Facebook page and/or website for more information. As always you may contact the school to answer any questions you may have. 💙

Learning Packets for all K-12 students will be disbursed on Monday, April 6, 2020. Middle/School and High School packets will be mailed. If your child is a middle school or high school art student their packet will be delivered as art supplies are being included in their packet. K-5 packets will be delivered. Staff will be using health precautions when delivering. We will knock and put the packet in-between the screen door and inside door. All previous packets need to be kept by each family as we are still working at a safe plan for handling all returned packets. Please be patient with us as a school, yourselves and children as we all adjust to a different learning and home environment. ❤️ We are here to answer any questions. Our numbers are below.

Just a reminder please notice the change towards the end...❤️. Updated Tuesday, March 24, 2020 @ 9:45 p.m. Returning back to drive thru services for sack lunches. During this school closure it is important for us to re-evaluate procedures. Therefore, we will be going back to a sack lunch pick up starting TOMORROW, March 25. Please note.....Tiospa Zina Tribal School is providing sack lunches starting, Wednesday, March 25, 2020 from 11:00 a.m- 1:00 p.m. Lunches will be handed out on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. These lunches will be able to be picked up and taken home to eat. Please send only healthy family members of your family to pick up. Lunches may be picked up at the back doors of TZTS. This is open to all kiddos ages 1-18 not just TZTS kids. Due to state requirements children ages 1-18 must be in the vehicle when lunches are picked up. However, TZTS will be flexible with this requirement and understands all concerns with having to bring your children out to pick up lunches. Please contact Superintendent, Gabe Kampeska for any questions. His cell number is (605) 268-3133.

TZTS K-12 students if you did not get a chance to pick up your learning packet today you may pick it up on Monday, March 23, 2020 between 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. 💙 We had 220 out of 254 elementary students pick up today, 82 out of 120 students in the middle school and 79 out of 144 in the high school. A total of 380 student packets were picked up. It was so nice to see our families even for a few minutes today.
Tiospa Zina will be making a change with how meals are distributed. Starting Monday, March 23, 2020 our bus drivers and bus monitors will deliver to individual homes of students that ride the bus. For those students that do not ride the bus and would like a meal dropped off you must call or text Mindy Crawford at 268-0233 or message on Facebook, your child's name and address so that your child can be added to the list. This information will be shared with Trish Crawford our Food Service Director. Meals will be delivered on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of each week. Meal bags will contain items for two breakfasts and two lunches. Lunches will be delivered between 11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. each day. We will no longer have the drive up lunch pick up at TZTS as stated in letter that was sent home. We continue to makes changes to ensure that all of our kids needs are met and health and safety of all staff and families. Please be patient and understanding during this transition time of feeding and educating our children from home. 💙
