Due to three COVID-positive student cases at the high school this week and the growing number of high school students and staff who are currently quarantined, we have made the decision to shift the High School to remote learning beginning Monday, November 23rd through Friday, December 11th.
This move will allow for a 14-day period to lapse before the high school students resume in-person classes. Also, a remote learning environment will allow quarantined staff and students to more fully participate in instruction.
High school students should log into their classes each day as they did for Thursday’s practice virtual day. However, students should follow their regular bell schedule for Monday, November 23rd and Tuesday, November 24th(as if they are in the building) due to some high school teachers also having middle school students. The bell schedule will be posted on the district website for your information.
Starting December 1 students will be following the bell schedule below
- Below is the bell schedule for live/synchronous days in December (1, 3, 4, 7, 8, 10, & 11):
Period 1 & Advisory
8:00 - 8:55
9:00 - 9:40
9:45 - 10:25
10:30 - 11:10

12:00 - 12:40
12:45 - 1:25
1:30 - 2:10
2:15 - 2:55
Students who attend the GACTC will continue in the CTC’s virtual model through Friday, December 4th. A determination about the week of December 11th will be communicated at a later time.
School sponsored extra-curricular activities for students may resume on Monday, December 14th. Winter sports practices will begin on Tuesday December 1, 2020, unless determined otherwise.
We will provide additional updates as necessary. Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation.

ATTENTION TYRONE AREA HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS:
Official high school transcripts are no longer sent through the high school guidance office. The high school has teamed with Parchment.com to send official transcript electronically to colleges and other post-secondary institutions.
Invitations to create an account with Parchment.com were sent to all students via their .tasd email accounts. Each student has been assigned a registration code that is included in the email invitation.

If you have questions, can’t find your email invitation or need a copy of your new registration code, please call or visit the high school guidance office.
