TMHS Daily Bulletin
TMHS CLOSED THROUGH THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR, JUNE 15, 2020
Governor Charles Baker announced that Massachusetts school closures will continue through the end of the school year, June 15, 2020.
As a result, we will continue with remote learning through May 1, 2020, and until that time while we await further guidance from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to update our Remote Learning Plan, hopefully by early next week. Staff and students have been working extremely hard during this time of remote learning and we appreciate the encouragement and support that parents have provided. We will continue to examine remote opportunities to honor some traditional celebrations while we focus on a remote learning curriculum that puts our students in the best possible position to be successful in the fall when we return to school.
For more information go to the Tewksbury Public Schools website.

The Wellness committee is looking for student committee members. This would look great on those college applications. The Wellness committee only meets 3 more times this school year so it is not a huge commitment. For more information please see Mrs. Constantino in the nurse's office.
Parking spaces are only for senior and junior students. If you wish to obtain a parking permit (and meet the set requirements), you will be issued a permit. The cost this school year for a parking permit is $150. All students must first register for a parking permit through CommunityPass at https://register.communitypass.net. You can pay the fee with a credit card or using your checking account through CommunityPass. You will be able to register and pay as of August 13th. See the insert with directions on logging into CommunityPass. After a student has registered for parking on CommunityPass the student should report to the TMHS office with a Xerox copy of their license and a Xerox copy of their registration.
ADVISORY BLOCK DATES
The purpose of advisory is to foster a positive school culture and personalize all students’ learning experiences. One of the objectives of Advisory Block is to allow students time to figure out who they are, where they’re headed, and how they’re going to get there. Through advisory, each student has an additional teacher who knows them and can help them navigate high school so that they leave with a meaningful, personalized plan and are prepared for post secondary options.
Advisory Block Days Schedule
Period 1 7:30 AM - 8:30 AM
Period 2 8:34 AM - 9:34 AM
Period 3 9:38 AM - 10:38 AM
