Winter Dress-Up Days! December 20th-22nd 2021!

End of Semester One Reminders

The end of the semester can be a very exciting time and also a very stressful time. It is always appreciated when families connect with their children and discuss current levels of learning and what needs to be done before the end of the semester. Any parents needing Infinite Campus grade book access are encouraged to contact the high school office. Parents are also encouraged to reach out to any teachers as questions arise. We want to make sure and communicate in advance to promote a partnership established in trust and accountability and we want to avoid surprises at the end of the grading period.


Friday, January 21 (3:30 PM) - Semester one grades will be available in Infinite Campus

Monday, January 24 - Report cards mailed

Friday, February 4 - Incompletes must have a grade assigned


Students in current activities with a failing grade "F" at the semester will be ineligible to compete until Saturday, February 5. Students with an incomplete will be ineligible until Saturday, February 5, or until they receive a passing grade.


Please contact Mr. Lutterman with questions.

National TikTok Trends

Many of you are probably aware of another recent social media trend against schools. This trend included numerous schools across the nation receiving threats of violence on December 17. We wanted to communicate that law enforcement and school administration were aware of this trend and did not receive news of any threats within our school or the surrounding school communities.


This is a great reminder and opportunity to talk with your children about the appropriate use of social media and the seriousness and resulting consequences of making any kind of threat. Students participating in online threatening or harassing behaviors will receive consequences that may include suspensions, expulsion, or criminal charges.


Encourage your children to continue to speak up if they see or hear something so immediate action can be taken. In addition, if anyone in our community sees something suspicious, please report it to the school immediately or call local law enforcement.


We appreciate your ongoing engagement and support.

Beyond HS Day

On December 23, Triton High School will be conducting Beyond High School Day. This special experience will present many opportunities for our students to learn more about potential careers and educational programs. This meaningful learning experience is part of our commitment to ensuring that all students are prepared for life post-high school.


The day will feature over twenty-five career-based speakers and presentations. The speakers are from the areas of health sciences, law enforcement, education, construction, manufacturing, mechanics, military, music, law, animal science, agriculture, business, hospitality, HR, art, and computer science.


The highlight of the day will be welcoming twenty Triton graduates to speak to the students on their post-high school experiences.


Thank you to all the industry leaders and former students for making this experience possible.

Snow Days

In the event of future snow days, we will follow the plan as listed below.


Next Snow Day

Our calendar is built to support three snow days. We had our first day off due to COVID case increases in November. Our second snow day was used on Friday, December 10. The next snow day will be a traditional snow day. That means students will not have attendance or new assignment expectations. They can always go back and work on previous assignments or work to get caught up.


Additional Snow Days

Any additional snow days after three allotted will be Asynchronous Days.

  1. Student should log into their Infinite Campus Portal to submit their attendance.
  2. Academic work will be posted to Schoology (THS) or Google Classroom (TMS) by 10:00 AM.
  3. Teachers will also post an online meeting to answer questions from 10 AM - 12 PM.

Congrats, Braxton Munnikhuysen

Braxton Munnikhuysen was recently named to the Post Bulletin All-Area Team - 2nd Team Defense.


As noted in the Post Bulletin...

Braxton was one of the top all-around football players in the area. He made a big impact defensively from his middle linebacker position. He had 80 tackles, 6 tackles for loss, 2 interceptions, 3 fumble recoveries, and 2 forced fumbles. Munnikhuysen has an excellent combination of speed and strength.
