Wildcat Weekly

Vol. 21 Issue #20 December 6 - 10

Welcome back to the weekly! We enjoyed another week at TMHS!


Campus is buzzing with the holiday spirit as we approach winter break. You'll find students and staff "dressed up" for the 12 days of Christmas, different organizations pumping out the holiday cheer with fun, food, and activities, and offices and classrooms decked out to celebrate! We are another week closer to finishing out our fall semester of the 2021-2022 school year and are working tirelessly to prepare students for their fall semester final exams. You'll find plenty of important announcements, shout-outs, and updates throughout this week's edition, so please take some time to read it all!

Student Safety

The recent events in Michigan remind us that is ever important to communicate that the safety and security of our students is always our top priority. While many plans and preventative measures are strategically worked through and adjusted on a continuous basis, we want to share much of that with each of you. The attachment linked HERE is a parent guide outlining the processes used district-wide in regard to emergency situations. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the guide and reach out with any questions you may have.

Student Cell Phone Reminders

The district permits students to possess personal technology devices for safety and educational purposes; however, these devices must remain silenced during the instructional day, and shall only be used in accordance with all guidelines established in the Tomball ISD Digital Resources Acceptable Use and Internet Safety Policy. This includes, but is not limited to:


- Cell phones may be used during class for instructional purposes and in accordance with each teacher’s guidelines. Please note that teachers may choose to prohibit cell phone use in their classrooms.


- Cell phones may be used before and after school, between class periods, and during lunch as long as students follow TISD acceptable use guidelines.

Student Dress Code

Thank you to all of our parents and students for helping keep our campus in dress code!


We will continue to enforce our dress code policies per the TISD Student handbook with an emphasis continuing on the following items:


- All students must wear clothing that adequately covers the body. Shorts and/or skirts must reach the mid-thigh. Spaghetti straps, strapless, backless, see-through and low-cut tops are not allowed. Tops must cover the midriff.

- All male students must be clean-shaven and may not display any piercings including the ear.

- Students are not allowed to wear hats, bandanas, or other head coverings.

- Student hair must be that of natural color. Students that need to address this particular portion can meet with their Assistant Principal to discuss a solution and timeline.


All dress code policies can be found in the TISD Student Handbook linked HERE.
