Announcements

  • Information for TAMS students and families about Remote Learning

    Attendance

    For daily attendance, your advisory teacher will record attendance as usual in your advisory/first period Zoom class.  You need to make sure you are logged into the advisory teacher’s Zoom room by 8:00am.

    Students who do not have internet access should call the TAMS office between 7:30 - 8:00am (814-684-4240 x3712) to have their attendance counted for the day.

    If you are late to school for the day (logging in for the first time anytime past 8:00am), you need to sign into the Attendance Google link to record your “arrival” time at school.  If you don’t go there before you go to class, you may be marked absent for the day. You will be marked tardy. You should not do this unless you are starting school late for the day (not just late to start a class).

    Asynchronous days (December 2nd & 9th) students must log their attendance. This must also be completed no later than 8:00am. If you do not log your attendance on asynchronous days you will be marked absent. If you log your attendance after 8:00am you will be marked tardy.

    Students enrolled in the Tyrone Cyber program DO NOT need to log their attendance.

    Parents
    The school must have parental notification to excuse your student’s absence, please email the middle school main office at Kteckley@tyrone.k12.pa.us. This also includes early dismissals. If your student is able to return to class after their appointment please have them sign in using the Google Late Attendance Link prior to attending their zoom class.

    Attendance will also be taken by teachers in every class. Students who do not come to class will be referred to the office as a “class cut” and parents/guardians will be notified.

    Classwork

    Students have been using CANVAS since the beginning of the year.  For remote learning, each grade has been going over how to find the Remote Learning materials, courses, and live instruction Zoom meetings.  Basic navigation instructions are below for each grade.  Videos about how to get to and navigate CANVAS are on the TAMS website (accessible through the district web page or https://www.tyrone.k12.pa.us/tams)

    Once students are in CANVAS…

    5th grade

    From your DASHBOARD, go to the COURSE called “Remote Learning Days.”

    6th grade

    Go to each class period by finding that class in your DASHBOARD. Go to the teacher’s Home page in CANVAS for the “Remote Learning” link to their classwork and Zoom room for instruction.

    7th grade

    Go to each class period by finding that class in your DASHBOARD. Go to the teacher’s Home page in CANVAS for the “Remote Learning” link to their classwork and Zoom room for instruction.

    8th grade

    From your DASHBOARD, go to the COURSE called “Remote Learning Days” for links to classwork and the teacher Zoom links. 

    • Students will also be able to find their elective and rotation class information. We are following the rotation schedule on the website.
    •  In order to save bandwidth, teachers will have the “video” function turned off when it is not necessary to see students. Some classes may open and close the video function, depending on the activity. 
    •  Students should put their first name and last initial as their Zoom name.
    •  Students who have scheduled breaks with other teachers or agencies will go to those Zoom rooms when it’s time. These links can be found on the either the grade level’s course Home page, if the grade level has one course created for remote learning. Otherwise the links can be found on each teacher’s course Home page in the grade level.
    •  Students may be instructed by their teachers to use the chat box and/or raise hand features in Zoom.

  • Math & STEM Resources for Students and Parents

    TumbleMath is a collection of animated and narrated math picture books covering K-5 math concepts using stories and literature to reinforce concepts. Math picture books fall into one of three categories. 1. Fundamental math picture books are based solely around a math concept. 2. Embedded math picture books have the math embedded into the story, and the plot stands alone. 3. Connected math picture books do not have math concepts in place, but teachers can make connections to math through think-aloud activities and class discussions. Books are accompanied by lesson plans and thousands of quizzes created by math teachers, searchable by Common Core standards.  

    CSB2 STEM Ecosystem school and library access to TumbleMath is made possible by a PAsmart grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Education and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, Governor.

    Tutor.com is an online service to help students in grades K-16 in a variety of STEM-related subjects through live tutoring sessions, practice quizzes and tests, video lessons and more.

  • Safe2Say logo

    Safe2Say Something is a youth violence prevention program run by the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General. The program teaches youth and adults how to recognize warning signs and signals, especially within social media, from individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others and to “say something” BEFORE it is too late. With Safe2Say Something, it’s easy and confidential to report safety concerns to help prevent violence and tragedies.

    Here’s how it works:

    • Submit an anonymous tip report through the Safe2SaySomething system
    • Crisis center reviews, assesses and processes all submissions
    • Crisis center sends all submissions to school administration and/or law enforcement  for intervention
    • If needed, crisis center may contact tipster anonymously through the app
