Back to School parent meeting, Sep 9 at 6 p.m.
This annual meeting is required for all TCH parents and guardians to connect as a community. At least one adult from each family must attend. We will start on the soccer field with a reception and program. Parents will then go to their child(ren)’s classroom(s) where guides and room parents will explain the upcoming year, expectations, and special events. Masks are required when indoors.

We continue to monitor the children with temperature checks and for signs of illness. We ask you to continue to do the same at home, keeping children home who have a fever over 100.4°F, gastrointestinal discomfort, or respiratory symptoms. Increased sanitization and hand washing also remain in effect.  *Reminder, the current TCH COVID-19 illness protocol is still in effect, any symptoms of COVID should be discussed with Kim Gallagher to determine further actions to return to school.
