Dear Neighbors:

Back to school has taken on a new meaning this year. We appreciate the outstanding efforts and coordination among faculty, students, and families. Thank you for working together through the changes.

Tamarac families are encouraged to register for the City’s Learn, Play, Engage (L.P.E.) Kids Program, located at Tamarac Park (7501 N. University Dr.), available for students in grades 3-6. The L.P.E. program offers children the opportunity to carry out their virtual education and interact with other students while maintaining health protocols and social distancing. Open to residents and non-residents. To register, visit LPEtamarac or call (954) 597-3674.

A big thank you to everyone supporting local commerce through our Tamarac Together campaign, and to all the businesses complying with the CDC guidelines for providing a safe environment for patrons.

Important Reminders:

  • Hurricane season is still upon us. Please remain alert and vigilant to weather alerts, and make sure you have emergency supplies and an evacuation plan. For tips on how to prepare, visit www.ready.gov/hurricanes.
  • If you have recently recovered from COVID-19, please consider donating plasma to help those currently battling the infection. Those who haven’t had the virus can still assist by donating blood — just one blood donation can save up to three lives! To learn more about becoming a donor, please visit thefightisinus.org, or call 1-888-463-6332.
  • If you still haven’t filled out your 2020 Census yet, please do so before the September 30th deadline. It only takes 10 minutes of your time and can help families and our community for years to come. To complete yours, go to my2020census.gov or call (844) 330-2020.
  • Please make sure to keep your vehicles locked at all times! Do not leave valuables in your automobiles, and all keep personal items out of sight. To report any suspicious activity, please contact BSO’s non-emergency line at (954) 764-4357.
  • Be careful of scams and never give out your personal information over the phone, text, or email.
  • Please take a moment and check on loved ones during this time. Stress and isolation can negatively affect mental health, so reach out and let those you care about know you are thinking about them. We are all in this together, and we are getting through this together.

While Labor Day traditionally celebrates the strength of the unionized workforce, please take time to thank everyone for continuing to work hard during this unprecedented time. To our Frontline Heroes, First Responders, and Essential Workers, we are grateful for your efforts, sacrifices, and commitment. We love you!

On September 11th, and every day, please take a moment to:

remember those who died unnecessarily;
thank all of our first responders and servicemen and women who protect us;
thank those who are preparing to be our future defenders;
thank their families as well;
thank the unsung heroes, and
remain proud to be living in our wonderful country!

L’Shana Tovah to everyone celebrating the Jewish New Year.

Warm regards and remain safe,
