Marking Period 6

Antler Families,

It is difficult to express how quickly the year has passed. Together we have, both, achieved success and overcome challenges. Thank you for sharing your students with us and letting us be part of their road to graduation. We recognize everyone's path to graduation is different and we are here to support and guide that path. Congratulations to the class of 2022 and we look forward to the future classes' success next year.

Thank you, again, for your support this year. You are a critical piece of our success.

Good Things Happening At Tivy---Here is our Message!

Tivy Students do the following because of the pride they have in their school & community:

  • Work to get better each day.
  • Have a positive attitude and outlook.
  • Are good to one another.
  • Take care of their building by picking up after themselves and respecting property.
  • Follow the Student Code of Conduct.
  • Set high expectations for themselves.
  • Use the resources in the building for support.
  • See something say something.

With these expectations, we continue to be able to allow students flexibility and freedoms on campus. Please partner with us to reinforce these common expectations.

Campus Safety Protocols

Campus safety reminders are made regularly on campus and in classrooms. We encourage both students and parents to review the protocols. Students are encouraged to respond to the directions of adults and know the safety procedures.

Daily School Announcements & Other Information

Did you know you can access all school announcements in a newsletter format? Each daily announcement for students is available on the Tivy High School website. It is a great way to keep up with school events, fundraisers, and general school reminders.

Attendance & Communication

Attendance requirements for students remain the same as previous years. Students are required to be on campus 90% of the time to be eligible for high school credits. Students who are absent for lengthy periods with extenuating circumstances can be accommodated by the campus. Students with absences without proper documentation could be required to make-up hours and lost class time.

Please communicate with the campus when your student is not able to present in class. We ask that students attend as often as they can when they are well.

Assistant principals meet regularly with students who need make-up hours to earn credits.

House Bill 4545 Information & What it means for our Students?

HB 4545 establishes new requirements for accelerated instruction for students who did not pass the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) in the 2021 school year.

Accelerated Instruction requirements are met by delivering supplemental instruction (tutoring) before school, after school, or embedded in the school day.

We have met with all students in grades 9 through 12 who require the accelerated instruction. STAAR testing next week will give students the opportunity to demonstrate grade level mastery.

Students have been provided with options for before school, after school, or during F.I.T lunch tutoring. Students are required to log 30 hours of additional instruction per test.

Students who have not met their additional instructional time this school year could be required to attend summer school.

SAVE THE DATES: Summer School 2022

Tivy High School will host Summer School starting June 6 ending June 30. Classes will meet Monday thru Thursday from 8AM until 12 noon. Summer school is available for students who:

Social Media, Support & P3 Campus Reporting

The campus is working through the latest series of social media challenges and situations.

We continue to discuss with students the impact of social media/technology and the digital resume we are building with each post, comment, video, etc. There are many positive powerful uses for social media and technology to connect people, information, and ideas. We encourage students to focus on the positive impacts they make on the world around them. Please partner with us to encourage this message and monitor your student's use of technology.

Additionally, both students and parents have access to our P3 campus system for reporting concerns anonymously. Our safety motto is "If you see something, say something."; we are here to help.
