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.

Arrival

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.  

Buses, Bells, Transportation and Traffic

Bus route information is now available in PowerSchool.

Bell schedule

8:00-8:55 – Early Bird

9:00-9:50 – Period 1

10:00-11:15 – Period 2/3

11:25-1:30 – Period 4/5/Lunch/Academic Extension*

1:40-2:55 – Period 6/7

            3:00 p.m. – Junior car drivers released

            3:05 p.m. – Walkers and Bikers

          No early dismissals after 2:30 p.m.

Student Drivers (11th and 12th grade): Please fill out this link if you are an 11th or 12th grader and you would like to drive to Tucker.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child’s administrator.

Thank you in advance for your patience. 

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

Sincerely,

Art Raymond

Principal

Return to Learning Information

Return to Learn Slides LINK

Scroll down for info about bus routes, the bell schedule, drop off and dismissal, and parking.

If you are receiving this message, your child is signed-up to be an in-person learner beginning Monday, March 1st for 9th graders and Monday, March 8th for ALL students in grades 9, 10, 11, and 12.

  • To prepare your student, please review our guide for in-person learners document for information about what school will be like for students attending in-person.
  • If your child has a teacher who will be teaching from home, your child will attend class in a supervised environment on campus.
  • While we are very excited for our students to be in-person, I have heard from a number of families who would like the opportunity for their child to remain virtual for the remainder of the year instead of returning to in-person.  I want to make sure that you all know that you can make a change for your child to remain virtual for the remainder of the year, even if you signed them up for in-person in November. If this is the case for your family, please call our main office at 527-4600 or email your counselor.  Their contact information can be found here
  • As a reminder, if you would like for your child to remain virtual for the majority of his or her classes but be in-person for the ACE center or marching band, we can allow this.  Students who are only attending their ACE program will attend 1st period at Tucker each morning as transportation will arrive at the end of first period to take them to their centers. And, your child can also participate in athletics and in-person school activities if he or she remains virtual.
  • Before your child can return to school, 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.”)

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.

  • Further information about the specifics for pick-up/drop off will be shared prior to our return.

Wellness Wednesdays and Advisory

Tomorrow is our first Wellness Wednesday (2/24/21). Please read this so that you understand what is happening. Thank you!

En español

Purpose of Advisory

The purpose of the Advisory period (9:00-9:25 a.m.) is to provide you with an opportunity to check in with your first period teacher and to complete the Advisory lesson. We are required to take roll once on this day because it is a school day.

Expectations for Advisory

  • Log onto your first period teacher’s Schoology/Teams Link at 9 a.m.
  • Your teacher will have a lesson for you with directions on http://bit.ly/jrtae
  • If you do not complete the exit ticket for attendance, absent phone calls will go out to your parents/guardians.

IMPORTANT: If you have a first period study hall or you weren’t scheduled with a first period, you will now see a class on your schedule in PowerSchool called “Advisory.” On Schoology it is listed under “My Courses” as “Study Hall.”

Schedule and Expectations for Wellness Wednesday (9:00-2:55 p.m.)

  1. At 9 a.m., log onto your first period teacher’s Schoology/Teams link for the Advisory lesson and attendance for the day.
  2. Advisory will last from 9:00-9:25 a.m.
  3. After 9:25 a.m., you can work asynchronously on your own.
  4. From 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., your teachers will have office hours.
  • Teachers may reach out to you to schedule an appointment.
  • You can contact your teacher during office hours by using their office hours link. Use http://bit.ly/jrtae. Click on “home” to find their name and link.
  • You can also pop in using that link, but they may be with another student(s).

_  5.       These are other ways you can use the time:

  • You can complete previously assigned homework.
  • You can make-up excused missed assessments/assignments.
  • You can complete other work provided by your teachers.
  • You may also have to take standardized testing (e.g., SOLs, ACCESS), as applicable.

When in doubt, reach out (to your teachers)!

Thank you!
