TMHS Weekly Update

April 6, 2020

While School is out...

We hope that you are all doing well and staying healthy. This week we hope that our students create more structure to their days by engaging in remote learning. As a reminder, students will receive credit/no credit for their courses at the end of the school year. Teachers have been working hard the past week to prepare for remote learning. We have included information about the time expectations and a schedule for each full year and half year class on the TPS Remote Learning Plan site. Students should be checking their Google Classroom for specific information on assignments and office hours times.


We want to thank you for all of your support and patience during this unprecedented time in our history.


Stay healthy and safe!

Senior Project

If we were in school, our seniors would have started their Senior Projects today. However, we are not as a result of circumstances out of all of our control. With the Governor having pushed back school closures until May 4th, we do not see that it is possible for our seniors to complete even a modified project. Therefore, all seniors will remain in their courses and continue to engage in remote learning. School is not optional for seniors at this time.

Physical Education/Wellness Activities

Activities for exercise and wellness will be posted on the TMHS website and twitter each day. We encourage everyone to find time each day to focus on their physical and mental wellness.

There is information included on this site about the TMHS plan for remote learning. Students will receive information about assignments for each of their courses via their teacher's Google Classroom. Students will receive feedback on this work and whether students receive credit/no credit will be determined for all students at the end of the school year.
