As COVID-19 continues to be a challenge in our community, it is important TMSA communicate updates and/or changes to COVID-related protocols pertaining to our school. Face-to-face instruction (a virtual instruction option is currently unavailable) for all TMSA scholars (K - 8) begins on Tuesday, January 18, 2022, and the school's COVID protocols have been amended. To mitigate the current spread of COVID-19, TMSA will follow the protocols listed below for the week of January 18 - 21, 2022:
- Masks are required for all students, teachers, staff, and visitors on campus at all times.
- Students will each lunch inside their classrooms (outside is optional, weather permitting).
- Governing Board committee meetings will be hosted virtually.
- TMSA students (including their immediate families), teachers and staff may test for COVID-19 (PCR) onsite at TMSA on Wednesday, January 19, 2022 from 7:45 a.m - 10:00 a.m.
- Additional hand sanitizer stations are located throughout the school.
- Every classroom is stocked with sanitizing wipes, hand sanitizer, desk shields, and emergency masks for students (students should bring extra masks to school).
- Students are encouraged to bring their personal water bottles to school.
- Students must not come to school sick. Teachers will gladly work with students to ensure they receive their assignments, etc.
- All positive COVID-19 test results (taken on-site at TMSA or off offsite) pertaining to TMSA students, teachers and staff should be immediately reported to Nurse Jackson by completing and submitting the electronic Confirmed COVID-19 Case Form.
- If four or more reported COVID-19 cases per class are officially reported to Nurse Jackson, the class will go into quarantine for 5 days.
- In and out-of-season athletic and performing arts practices and competitions will continue with participant screening and indoor capacity limitations raised to 30%. Concessions will not be sold at athletic events hosted at TMSA.
Thank you to all students, parents and staff for your continued patience in addressing the challenges of COVID and dedication to our mission of teaching and learning.
