A copy of TRUSD uniform complaint or TRUSD non-discrimination policy are available upon request."



If your child is absent please call the front office at 916-566-3435 or click here to send an email to office administration. All absences must be reported within 5 days.

Fairbanks and Twin Rivers District policy states that students must be picked up within a reasonable amount of time. Our school office closes at 3:15 pm. If your child is not picked up by 3:00 pm, TRUSD police department will be notified, regardless of any prior notices. It is standard procedure to take any child considered abandoned to the Sacramento Children's Receiving Home until the parent is contacted. We understand things happen and we are willing to work with you and help in any way we can. In those rare instances when you will be late, it is best to call and let us know. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.

Three yellow buses rolled through Twin Rivers just before the winter break, loaded with boxes of food and wrapped gifts for 20 families in need. Also on board were Santa and Mrs. Claus, along with other volunteers from the Twin Rivers central office.

“Thank you TRUSD for the love ... we are so grateful and humbled by the gifts,” responded student Nani Poloai. “Maybe there really is a Santa Claus after all.”

The volunteers started their day at the Sacramento Food Bank where they picked up donations of fresh fruits and vegetables. Before deliveries began, the buses stopped by the district office to collect gifts for all members of the families that were on the routes.

The gifts were donated and wrapped by central office volunteers.

School Smarts.jpg


How did School Smarts start?

Extensive qualitative and quantitative research and planning conducted by the California State PTA and supported by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation found a high level of interest among parents in learning more about their schools and how they can help children.

Based on that research, the California State PTA received a multi-year grant from the Hewlett Foundation to develop and offer in 14 pilot schools a School Smarts program, consisting of the parent academy plus an initial parent-engagement night to which all parents in the school are invited. This is the fourth year of the pilot program, which is currently being offered in over 40 schools.

Why is it needed?

Research has shown that parent engagement in education improves students’ chances of success in school, across all socioeconomic groups. Parent engagement is a longstanding focus of the PTA and is a proven, low-cost way to help schools.
