Hybrid (M/W or T/Th) schedule resumes!

IMPORTANT: With students returning to the Hybrid Model [LINK] of Instruction, we need to confirm students' learning locations. Expect a call-out message with a follow-up text and email for each of your TCES students this week. The message will communicate which learning location (Hybrid A, Hybrid B, Virtual) that we have on record for your student.
If you have questions or need to make a change, email Mrs. Suzanne VerHaagh email@example.com or call our office 301-863-4044.
