TJH Update #10

September 30, 2020

A Message from Dr. Mitzner

As we begin the 2nd six weeks, I sent out this clarification on attendance on Monday. Click here to read again. I know it is hard to adjust to all the changes this school year.


In an effort to provide an introduction to our outstanding staff and an outline of the course, we have created PDF one pagers for each grade level. They are attached below this message and will also be on our website. We want to support our student learning so I am attaching the Face to Face student tutorial schedule. The KVA schedule will be posted through Canvas by your teachers as we do not want to share all the Zoom passwords in a public location.


For tutorials, students are to enter the front door at 8:30 when the door opens.


I am so proud of all our Titans this year! Thank you for reinforcing the safety protocols with your child and supporting them in their learning endeavors.


Regards,

Dr. Kris Mitzner

Principal
