Before getting back in the classroom, parent are required to complete a studenthealth screening for their child every day.

If parents answer "yes" to any of the questions, TPS is asking them to keep their child at home.

Upon arrival, parents must stay in their cars for pick up and drop-off.

Teachers and staff will meet students at the door and walk them to their classroom.

Once school begins, each student will be assigned a pod with three to four other students. This will be who they work with for the week.
