Dear Tiverton Parents and Guardians,
It has been a seamless nine days of school with schedules working, lunches being served, buses running, after-school activities happening and nothing more important than excellent instruction taking place in all of our classrooms. We had a few extra hot days last week but we overcame that weather with the installation of additional air conditioning at Fort Barton, TMS and THS. In addition we provided every middle and high school student with a cold water bottle on those days. Our administrators are committed to providing the best learning environments for our students. I commend their extraordinary leadership.
Please read the attached letter regarding distance learning on days when school is canceled.
The key feature of our distance learning is having our students use Google Classroom to receive information and turn in assignments. Our students are taught to use Google classroom in school. To assist our parent community to understand the nuance of Google Classroom please watch this video.
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.
