Important Dates and Information

Tiogue is proud to be a Title One & Feinstein Leadership School!

Hours: 8:40am - 3:10pm

Students may come to school when supervisory coverage begins at 8:20am


Please go to www.coventryschools.net, click on the Parent Tab, then BCI form to print out a form. You must also bring that form to the Police Station with a photo ID to finalize the BCI application process. The Dept. has told the school that it will take up to 2 weeks to process the request. We know that we have a few field trips coming up, so some of you may want the processing to go quicker than expected. We can not guarantee that the BCI will arrive at the school prior to you chaperoning a field trip.

Head lice are one of the most common conditions among school-age children. Head lice aren't dangerous, but they are a nuisance. An estimated 6 to 12 million infestations occur each year among US children 3 to 11 years old per the Centers for Disease Control. Please check your child's head periodically (weekly is recommended). Please call me with any questions or concerns.
