Dear Tiverton Public Schools Community,
We continue to work diligently in reviewing all of our safety and security procedures and policies. This week, I am including another document providing information on ALICE. All of our schools have continued to have lockdown and evacuation drills which is the essence of ALICE. To keep all of our safety and security information centrally located we have created a webpage located on our website - link here: https://www.tivertonschools.org/o/tsd/page/safety

Below I have shared some reminders. Please take a moment to review this information that helps support our schools.
Early Risers Before School Program: Should you need to drop your child off at our schools prior to the scheduled start time, please consider enrolling your child in our Early Risers Program that is available to all Fort Barton, Pocasset, Ranger and TMS students for a nominal fee. The Tiverton Public Schools is proud to offer this successful before school program for any students in grades K - 8. The Early Risers Program allows families to drop off students anytime after 6:45 AM at the designated location. Early Risers is open every day that school is open and is a fun and friendly program that allows for students to socialize through crafting and other activities. For more information on the Early Risers Program, visit our website HERE. Registration is required to participate in this program. It is really important for planning purposes, to register your child as soon as possible. Your timely registration is greatly appreciated so that the Early Risers Program Coordinator can continue to provide an excellent program for your child. Should you have any questions, please reach out to Ms. Christine Giannini at firstname.lastname@example.org.
