TREMONT CONSOLIDATED SCHOOL
Greetings Tremont Students and Families,
The first week of remote learning was a success! All involved are owed a sincere thank you and congratulations on a job well done! We are so proud of our students for their enthusiastic and positive attitudes, as well as their ability to be resilient and persevere through hard things. It was priceless to see all of the bright and smiling faces on the computer screens and we are looking forward to seeing those same beautiful faces in person soon!
Please note that we have made a slight change to our mask protocol for students. We purchased several three layer cotton masks for each student K-8. We will give those masks to your child to bring home on the first day of school. We ask that you add those masks to your child’s mask rotation and ensure that 2 clean and approved masks come to school each day.
Below are a few photos of some of the things students will see when they return to our building.
On behalf of the TCS community, I’d like to thank Geoff Wood and Ashley Stanley for their help and a great deal of blood, sweat and tears in order to push our outdoor classroom space along to completion this summer. TCS is located in a breathtaking location and our outdoor classroom only adds to the natural beauty. We look forward to sharing this space with students upon their return.
On Thursday evening, the AOS #91 Board voted to approve the recommendation of Dr. Gousse to allow fall activities to take place with modifications. The link to those recommendations can be found here → AOS #91 Fall Activities Recommendations. Mrs. Watson will be reaching out to middle school families to begin planning for the fall season based on these recommendations. We will begin with skill building and conditioning activities and will find out more about the possibility of local competitions soon. Please note that regardless of the activity and in order to do our best to ensure the health and safety of all students and staff, spectators and visitors will not be allowed at practices, rehearsals, activities or events at any MDIRSS AOS #91 member school grounds or facilities. Thank you in advance. Your understanding and cooperation are essential in making this possible for students.
We are finalizing plans for in-person/hybrid schedules, bus routes, daily procedures, etc. Many of our classrooms are at capacity with 6’ of physical distancing between all students and staff. It’s important to note that changes to enrollment and transportation may have a cascade effect on whether or not we are able to accommodate all students registered to attend school in our building. The same is true for our bus routes. While we will do everything within our power to keep as many students in our building as possible at the end of the month, we ask that you consider what a back-up plan might look like for your family should we have to visit a hybrid or remote schedule throughout the year.
If you have any questions, concerns or words of support you would like to share with your child’s teachers, you can find contact information here → TCS Teacher and Staff Contact Information 2020-2021. Additionally, you can submit any questions through the TCS Questions and Concerns Form. As a partner in your child’s education your direct and respectful communication is greatly appreciated!
Finally, we want to be able to support the students and families of TCS as much as possible during these difficult times. Please feel free to complete the 2020-2021 TCS Family Support Form to let us know how we can help.
Have a wonderful week and thank you for dedication to your child(ren), our school and the Tremont community!
With love and support,
