TGMS Weekly Update

January 18, 2021


Each week we are reminding families that it is vitally important that all students log into their attendance in Infinite Campus and complete their assigned classroom work in Google Classroom daily. If your student forgets to check-in for their daily attendance, they should notify their homeroom teacher. We are asking our parents to please assist us in monitoring check-ins on virtual learning days. Parents may view their child's attendance through the Parent Portal.

Many of you received Attendance letters this week. We realize that some students have attendance issues. However, many students have failed to log their attendance on virtual days. Please review the attendance log in procedures with your student to avoid unwarranted absences.

Attendance reminder from PLSD on Virtual Learning Days

The following message will be sent to parents/students on virtual learning days if they have not checked in by noon:

Parents receive this message via email.....

Hello! This is just a reminder that your child has not been checked in virtually for today. Please have them log into their Infinite Campus and have them check in for today. If they are having trouble with Infinite Campus, please have them email the teacher right away so they are not marked absent. Thank you!

Students receive this message via email.....

Hello! This is just a reminder that you have not yet checked in virtually for today. Please log into your Infinite Campus and check in for today. If you are having trouble with Infinite Campus, please email your teacher right away so you are not marked absent. Thank you!

TGMS Yearbook pictures needed

Our annual yearbook publisher, Mike Price, of Fairfield Photography, is seeking your help in collecting photos of students learning in the classroom as well as learning at home to use in the 2020-2021 Toll Gate Middle School Yearbook. In the past, Mike has been able to go room-to-room to collect many of the photos you have seen, but with restrictions at the school, Mike is seeking your help to gather the photos he needs.

Mike has created a video that explains how you can submit photos for the yearbook. Please take a moment and review this brief video and help us fill the yearbook with lots of fun photos.
