After reviewing the options, please fill out THIS SURVEY until noon (12:00 pm) tomorrow.

The survey will also ask you questions about transportation. The DPI has notified us that the parents planning to use the bus service will no longer be able to pay the fees to the bus company directly. However, you can donate to us the money you plan to pay since we are solely relying on our own limited funds for this service. An average daily one-way trip costs $3.5 per student. We will create a transportation donation account and share the information with you. Thank you for your support in advance!

We will have a virtual town hall meeting tomorrow at 7:00 pm to share the survey result and have your live feedback and questions before the special Board meeting, which is scheduled for Wednesday (June 29) at 6:00 pm. The Board will make its decision on this matter.

Please note that these are our options as of today. Opening the schools on August 8th in their own buildings is our first and foremost plan. TMSA will do whatever it takes to realize it. We will continue to work with the City of Apex and the suppliers to find a solution to the Apex building's HVAC problem and get the certificate of occupancy as soon as possible.

Thank you so much for your support and understanding,
