Truckee school safety upgrade work to cause DPR congestion

The school year has ended, and the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District has jumped right into the construction season for its bond-funded facility upgrade projects.

Safety enhancements and parking lot upgrades are underway at Sierra Expeditionary Learning School (SELS), located adjacent to TTUSD’s main office in Truckee.

While the entrance off of Donner Pass Road remains the same, parking and access to the district office and SELS has changed temporarily to ensure public safety.

All visitors will be directed to park at Sierra High School. During the week, TTUSD will have a staff member stationed at Sierra High during office hours to handle any inquiries and receive packages.

Hours vary by day and will be posted at the school. The public is encouraged to use caution when entering from Donner Pass Road as there will be truck traffic.

Should a community member need to access the District Office, they will be directed to walk along a short, clearly marked pathway.

The project is scheduled to be completed by the second week in August, before the start of the 2016-17 school year. Visit to learn more.
