Inclement Weather Information
Sing up with RemindTCH Administration determines school delays and closings with the assistance of local law enforcement officer Tom Flitton, and TCH outdoor services provider, Chris Danbrook. Parents will receive an email by 7:00 a.m. (or earlier if possible) notifying them of the delay or closure. The information will also be posted on the school’s website at 7:00 a.m. Please note that TCH will not automatically follow the closure policies of TCAPS and NMC as it has in the past.

In addition to an email alerting you about school closings and delays, we will be adding notifications via Remind. Simply download the remind app to your mobile device and set up an account. Then, Text @hg6c3f2 to the number 81010. You will receive a welcome text from Remind. If you have any trouble with 81010, you can try texting @hg6c3f2 to (231) 638-5530. The class is titled TCH Parent Community. If you have questions about the Remind app, let us know and we will do our best to help you.  If you signed up last year for these notifications, you do not need to re-register.
