TPHS Online Learning Update 03-30-2020

Greetings Wildcats!

I hope this email finds you well, and that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.  This email is to notify all students and parents that our Online Distance Learning Program will begin this Monday, March 30th.  Right now, our teachers are busy setting up Google Classrooms to begin providing content for you next week.  Many of you already have experience with Google Classroom since many of our teachers already use it to complement their regular classroom instruction.  However, this large scale Distance Learning program is brand new, and we know there will be some kinks to work out.  As a reminder, this instruction is meant to help our students maintain and grow their knowledge and skill, but it will not be used for grading or for transcript credit.  Simply put, our teachers are going to offer great instructional opportunities for learning and growth, but this Distance Learning will not lead to a grade or credit on transcripts.  How grades and credits for the second semester of the 2019-2020 school year will be settled has not been decided, as the Coronavirus situation is very fluid and changes daily.  I will share whatever information I have about 2nd semester grading and spring events such as prom and graduation as soon as I possibly can, so please be patient as this unprecedented situation plays out.

That being said, I hope ALL Wildcats will take advantage of the Distance Learning opportunities that our dedicated teachers will be providing.  Our faculty have been like Olympic sprinters excitedly waiting in the starting blocks ready to go since school closed, and now on Monday the starter's pistol will fire and they can get back to doing what they do so well.  For those of you who are new to Google Classroom, remember, you must use your school issued Google email account to accept class invitations or to log in.  

Thank you for all the positivity and support you have been sending towards the school and one another.  Our Instructional Services department has worked very hard to create this great opportunity for our students to continue learning and growing throughout this difficult time, and I sincerely hope that all Wildcats will continue the positivity and mutual support as we move forward in this new endeavor.

Here is the message from our district's Instructional Services department that includes some further instructions and a link to a helpful online tutorial for those of you who are new to Google Classroom.

Dear Parents and Students, 

Google Classroom courses are being created and developed by our educators and leaders and will be made available to students by Monday, March 30th. There are two ways to join Google Classroom, via invite or class code. Please use the provided link as directions for accessing Google Classroom at home. Please remember to use the same student username and password that is used to sign into district computers when logging in. Once you are logged into Google Classroom you may see invitations to join classes. If you see an invitation, select “Join”. For any classes that you do not see an invitation, you will need to contact the class teacher or the school site to receive the class code for that particular class. For security purposes, we will not be sharing class codes to Google Classrooms publicly. We appreciate your patience as we work to make sure your child is enrolled within their respective courses.
