Congratulations to Skyland Elementary for being one of four schools in TCS that has shown double digit improvements on their state report card over the past 3 years. These improvements could not be made without the partnership between parents, students, teachers, staff, and administration all working together to help our students grow to their full potential. Thank you to all who helped make this incredible difference.
We do not yet have a decision for the missed weather day this week
TCS has not yet made a decision on the use of a weather makeup day for the Feb. 11 closure. Students will not have classes on Feb. 17 and 18 as planned. (Tuesday remains a professional development day for staff.) Once a decision has been made regarding a weather makeup day, this will be communicated with families.
