TJH Update #6

September 2, 2020

TJH 2020 -- Dr Mtizner Safety Welcome

A Message from Dr. Mitzner

A phrase I use regularly is, "Everything is HARD until it is easy!" I know this back to school has been tough on students, teachers and parents. Just know we are in this together!


We've spent countless hours preparing, aligning, and figuring out processes for both virtual and in-person instruction. Just like when a new store or restaurant is opening, there are adjustments to be made and I am committed to continuous improvement. Please know we care and we have the same goal - successful, engaged students.


On Friday, our 6th graders who are attending face to face instruction starting Tuesday, September 8th will have a video tour of the campus during their Home Base class. We will provide all face to face students with their ID and a copy of their schedule in their first period class. Staff members will be in the hallways greeting students and helping them find their first period class. In addition, we have the building well marked with arrows and numbers. I will send a separate TJH Update on Friday with videos and instructions.


As always, know that I am happy to answer your questions. I would rather get you connected with the correct information rather than misinformation.


Remember - Everything is HARD until it is easy!! This back to school season is no different!
