Welcome Ryan Robinson as our New School Board Member!

On Thursday the School Board unanimously voted to appoint Ryan Robinson for the vacancy on the Board. We had a strong candidate pool of 11 applicants and appreciate the willingness of these individuals to step up to serve. The passion, thoughtfulness and depth of knowledge were impressive. Ryan Robinson is a parent of three students enrolled in TES and TIS. He has a strong background in business and finance, community engagement, board work, data driven and a contagious enthusiasm. Please join us in welcoming Ryan to the BOE.

School Safety & Security:

We are always striving to improve our school safety and security. We are asking for your support in doing do. In our front office we are only having staff and students go beyond the front desk and enter the building unless there is appropriate need for a visitor to do so. If you are coming to the school as a visitor for any reason we ask for your patience while we call someone to meet you at the front desk and escort you to your location. We are also asking for anyone who volunteers as a field trip chaperone, or in the school or a classroom, or eats lunch with their students to complete a background check through Human Resources. Here is the link to a form to submit providing HR the information they need to perform a background check: https://forms.gle/voMxDVoRq3iS2vdG9

Adjusted end of the day schedule

Our bus riders will board their buses at 3:10-3:13 to depart at 3:15 p.m.

Students that are being picked up by their parents or after school activity will be dismissed at 3:15.

It is really just a 5 minute difference in the original schedule. Thank you for your flexibility!
