Dear Families

We had a wonderful Homecoming Week that culminated in a strong win by the Tekonsha Indians over the Litchfield Terriers and the crowning of 2022 Homecoming King Derek Booker and Queen Taylor Sayles. It was a great night to be an Indian!!!

Please take note that next week, on Friday, September 30, there will be no school for students. It is a teacher professional development day. Also, our fall Parent-Teacher Conferences are just around the corner, on Wednesday, October 5 and Thursday, October 6 from 4:30 pm - 7 pm.

Parents will receive a progress report of students' grades at conferences, but don't wait until then to see if your child is on track! Be sure to log in to the parent portal of Skyward and check your child's grades and attendance. Addressing concerns early will help with success as the year progresses!

Congratulations to 2022 Tekonsha High School Homecoming King Derek Booker and Queen Taylor Sayles

COVID Reminders

Please be sure to notify the school if your student has tested positive for COVID-19. We are still required to report all positive cases to the Calhoun County Public Health Department. All positive cases are still required to isolate at home for the first five days after the onset of symptoms. Beginning on day 6, if symptoms are improving the student can return to school but must wear a mask through day 10.

Schools are not required to do contract tracing for the 2022-23 school year. We will do a notification on our website that will stay posted for 24 hours if there is a positive school-associated case in either building.

Your Feedback Matters

Each week, there will be a link for a "Comment Box" for questions or concerns. We welcome all parents, guardians, and community members to reach out to us with questions or concerns. Often, we don't realize that something is a problem to fix until someone shares their concerns with us. To help ensure that all issues are treated respectfully and with appropriate confidentiality, we appreciate your use of this resource and not social media. Please know that concerns submitted without a follow up name and contact method will be reviewed, but it is possible that the person submitting the concern may not always be aware of the resolution.
