NEWSLETTER

As we enter September, we notice our students are adjusting well to being back at school and our new students have quickly picked up on the procedures. Please remember that students are expected to walk to class on their own. We try to keep classroom disruptions to a minimum. If you need to meet with a teacher please email them to set up a time. As always, if you have any questions you can call the school at (765)538-3875.

TEXT ALERTS AND NOTIFICATIONS
With the launch of the new TSC websites, the TSC and each of its schools will be transitioning away from Pinwheel for SMS (text) alerts and notifications and will instead utilize the communication options available within the new website. Parents/guardians, staff, and students can sign in to the website and register to receive alerts, calendar reminders, athletic updates, and more.

Parents/guardians must have an active PowerSchool Parent Portal account with an accurate email address in order to sign in to the website. To sign in for the first time, parents/guardians will click the "Forgot Username or Password" option on the website login page, then enter the email address that is associated with their PowerSchool Parent Portal account. Parents/guardians will then be able to reset the password for their website account, then add a cell phone number and register for SMS (text) alerts.

TSC students and staff will sign in to the website with their TSC username and password. Click here for step by step directions. Please contact the TSC Technology Department with any questions regarding this process by email or by phone at 765-269-8060.

CAR RIDER STUDENTS

If your child is a car rider you must use the car rider line at the back door. Car rider students may not enter or exit through the front doors. Please DO NOT drop off your children before 8:45am and leave. The teachers and staff are in meetings and are not available to supervise your student. The car rider doors have adults supervising them from 8:45-9:00am. If your student arrives later than 9:00am please bring them in the front entrance and sign them Tardy in at the office. This is for their safety. Students are only considered tardy if they arrive after 9:00 am. Please see the car rider map below. If you have further questions you may call the office at (765)538-3875. Thank you. 

A REMINDER FROM THE NURSE

Please do not send your child to school if they have had a temperature over 100, vomiting, or diarrhea in the last 24 hours. If a student is sent home from school for fever, vomiting or diarrhea they will be out the following day as well. Students CANNOT bring medicine to school.  All medicines & inhalers have to be brought to school BY THE PARENT. Cough drops CANNOT be sent to school either, we have cough drops in the health room students can take when needed.

ATTENDANCE

Please don't forget to call or email the school in the event your child is absent. You can call the office at 765-538-3875 anytime. You can leave a message if no one is available to take your call. If you prefer to email, you may do that also. Please email both Cheryl and Danielle at cnoble@tsc.k12.in.us and dekochert@tsc.k12.in.us. Thank you!

TARDY STUDENTS

If your student arrives to school after 9am, they are tardy. You must come into the office and sign him/her in. Once your student has been signed in Tardy, a pass will print for your child to take to their teacher. To avoid further classroom interruption, your student is expected to walk to class on their own. If they need assistance walking to class we will gladly help them. Not signing your student in could result in them accidentally being counted absent for the entire day. If possible, please contact the office to inform us your child will be Tardy and give us their lunch preference.

PICKING UP STUDENTS DURING SCHOOL HOURS

If you need to pick up your child for an appointment during the school day, please send a note with your child or call the office. You must come into the building to sign your student out in the office. Please note that after 3pm, the office will not interrupt your child's class.
