Message to In-Person Students and Families

Greetings Tiger Families,

The moment has finally arrived! Tomorrow we welcome back our returning 10th, 11th, and 12th who will join our 9th graders who came last week.

Please take a few minutes (6 to be exact) to watch this video about returning to learning: VIDEO (Some of this information is geared towards 9th graders.)

Please scroll down this message to find important last minute reminders and resources. 

Please note that there is a new traffic pattern with student drop-off in the morning and student pick-up in the afternoon at dismissal.  Please enter and exit the front parking lot from Parham Road.


Students will not be able to enter a building or classroom before 8:30 a.m. 

School starts at 9 a.m.

Review Your Class Schedule on PowerSchool

Before tomorrow, please have your child look at their schedule. Some room numbers have changed. If the schedule says LIB, then the class meets in the library.

Two Forms Needed

There are two forms related to Covid-19 health and safety that we will need for you to sign. 

1.       COVID-19 Health Screening Acknowledgement Form for Students (2 pages). This form acknowledges that every student will go through the screening questions every day before coming to campus. If students answer that they have any of the scenarios or symptoms listed, they should not come to school and the school should be notified. (Please call the Attendance Office at 527-4600 and press “1.”)

2.       COVID-19 Addendum to the Health and Safety Parent/Student Acknowledgement Form

Please log into the PowerSchool Parent Portal and select the menu “Access Online Forms” located on the left.  Once in the forms portal, you will see instructions on how to locate and complete these forms online.  If you do not have a PowerSchool Parent Portal account, you can access this page for more information on setting up an account or contact me so that I can assist you. Instructions are available in Spanish and Arabic.

Masks and Earbuds

We will provide two masks for each student who is attending for in-person learning.  

Students will need to bring headphones to school with them every day for in-person learning.  In some cases, depending on the situation with the teacher and their in-person class size, students may be accessing their teachers’ instruction virtually while they are in-person.  So, having headphones will be an important part of their ability to access instruction.

Thank you in advance for your patience. 

I hope that you and your family are staying healthy and safe.
