What's Happening...

Teachers and staff returned to THS on Monday to prepare for the upcoming school year. It was a great week of professional development as teachers discussed instructional practices, building protocols and utilized many technology resources. Next week additional professional development will take place as we continue to prepare for students on Monday, September 14th.


The first day of school is scheduled for Monday, September 14th. This day will have Lakeview cohort students in-person and Winslow cohort students attending remotely. All remote learning students will also start this day. All students should check their school email for schedules as well as Google Classroom invites which have begun to be shared by teachers and will continue to be through next week. Students should contact their teachers directly on Friday, September 11th if they have not received an invite for Google Classroom for any Trimester 1 course.


Freshmen and Newcomer Orientation will be taking place on Wednesday, September 9th. The Senior Sidekicks will host the Lakeview cohort from 9:00-10:00 and the Winslow cohort from 10:30-11:30.

This program will provide parents/guardians the opportunity to pick up lunches each week for their child(ren) to have on days that they are attending school remotely. Lunches will be charged to each student’s prepaid lunch accounts. Please note that free & reduced students are eligible to participate as well.

School Counseling

This year due to the pandemic, we will be offering SAT School Day on Wednesday, October 14th (in lieu of the October 3 testing date) as we wanted to ensure that the senior class still has the opportunity to take the test. The test and date will be open only to Tyngsborough High School seniors.


More information regarding sign-ups for SAT School Day will be available through Student Services in the upcoming weeks.
