Husky Happenings

January 11 - 15

From Mr. Martin

As we enter into 2021, I would like to acknowledge changes I am observing. The change I notice is the acknowledgement of mental health issues and appropriate support. I am sharing a link that is on our web page and provides direct access to our TRMS counselors. 2020 is a year to remember, and I try to focus on ‘takeaways’ that provide for positive growth. The acknowledgement that mental health is an issue openly discussed with support openly shared is a change. This is good. Having been part of education for many years, I do believe things are better now than they have ever been. We continue to improve the product of teaching, and dealing with mental health will be part of effective schools in the future. Keep in mind mental health involves everyone involved in the education process (students, teachers, and parents).


Repeated information: Be aware we are replacing Skyward with a new system for managing student information called PowerSchool. This will be our new system that we use beginning 2nd semester on Jan 19th. You will be receiving information this week that will allow you to create a login and begin accessing your student’s information. This is a great time to check for accuracy: phone numbers, email, emergency contact, etc.

Big picture

YEARBOOK NEWS

We WILL have a yearbook this year! We are working to schedule picture day for 6th - 8th grade forced remote students. We definitely want ALL TRMS students in our yearbook this year. When the picture day is set, it will be announced. We will be sending out information about how to purchase a yearbook soon!

IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

When deciding if your student is able to attend school, please keep the following in mind. If your student has one primary or two secondary symptoms of covid-19, they need to remain at home. If your student has tested for covid-19 and are waiting on their results, they need to remain at home. If someone in the home has tested positive for covid-19, your student needs to remain at home. If they have been a close contact of someone who has tested positive for covid-19, even if that person does not live in the home, then your student needs to remain at home.


If one of these is your situation, please call and let us know. We will provide further guidance at that time. We appreciate your help and support in our endeavor to provide a healthy school environment for our students and staff.
