What's Happening!

The year is winding down as students have been busy presenting final projects and completing final exams. Exams finish up on Monday and students will be receiving schedules for next year and going through each trimester on Tuesday and Wednesday. Tuesday morning 8th graders will be joining high school students and will follow their 2017-2018 trimester 1 schedule. At approximately 11:00 am we will transition students to trimester 2 classes and then on Wednesday students will follow the trimester 3 schedule. During these transition days teachers will be discussing upcoming course topics, class expectations and any summer work assignments. Schedule changes can be made during that time. As a reminder Wednesday, June 21st is an early release.


Report cards will be distributed on Wednesday, June 21st. If your son/daughter does not receive it on that day, you may stop by the main office to pick it up. Report cards will also be available through the parent portal.


Thank you for a great year and enjoy the summer!

End of year Notes from Debbie Donohoe RN in the THS Nurse's Office

Mandated Screening

Screenings are conducted in Tyngsborough Public Schools annually in accordance with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health Regulations (refer to guidelines below). Screening tests are not diagnostic in nature. They are designed simply to indicate students who may need further attention in a specific area.

If a parent/guardian does not wish to have this screening done at school they must send:

1. a written request to exclude their child from participating in school screenings AND

2. written documentation from the family physician documenting their results of the screening.

Screenings are performed at THS throughout the school year as the student's schedule allows.

Vision and Hearing – will be screened during grade 10.

Growth and Development – Height, Weight, Body Mass Index (BMI) and corresponding percentile will be calculated for students in grade 10.

Postural – students will be screened in grade 9 for scoliosis. Complete privacy is afforded the students during this examination. If your child is currently under the care of a physician for scoliosis, documentation for their health record is very beneficial.

Parents/legal guardians will be notified of any findings that necessitate medical follow-up.


Physical Examinations

A periodic physical exam is critically important for all children and adolescents. It's objective is to identify and follow up on health conditions that may adversely affect students' well being and ability to learn. While parents/guardians have primary responsibility for their children's health, the school is responsible for the care, safety, and well-being of students in the educational setting. Therefore, a student's health history and physical examination results are necessary components of the school health record. Under the guidelines of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Massachusetts Department of Education, it is the policy of the Tyngsborough Public School District that students are required to submit a current Physical Examination report to have on file in the nurse's office upon entry into JUNIOR year. Examinations must be from within the previous twelve months to be considered current and must include a certificate of immunization. Documentation of Physical Examination is also required prior to a student's participation in competitive athletics, on an annual basis. Please do not submit Physicals to a coach. This documentation can be forwarded to the e-mail, fax, or mailing address listed below during the summer or to the School Nurse when your child returns to school. Early submission is very helpful in avoiding delay in your child participating in try-outs and starting the season.
