"Tiger Launch" Overview

Tiger Launch refers to school-specific dates when students and families can visit their schools. Elementary schools may hold open houses or ice cream socials. Secondary students can pick up schedules, get student pictures, school IDs, connect with parent organizations, etc.


Each school handles Tiger Launch differently. Due to COVID-19, we are still determining how each building can best offer Tiger Launch for the 2020-21 school year.

ELEMENTARY TIGER LAUNCH


WDMCS elementary schools are collaborating to plan ice cream socials and open houses for the 2020-21 year. Traditional events may be delayed or canceled due to COVID-19 safety protocols. Watch for more information from your student's building this summer.

JUNIOR HIGH & HIGH SCHOOL TIGER LAUNCH


Last year, secondary students visited schools to get IDs, schedules, parking passes, Chromebooks, etc. Due to COVID-19, each building is making adjustments to move some of these items online or handle on-site once school starts.


However, we understand the importance of students visiting a new building before the first day of school. Watch for more information from your student's building on how they will connect with your students this August.
