First Day of School



Please make note of new school schedule. Don't be late your first day!


Notes from our principal, Dr. Angie Brooks Applegate:


This will be the first day for students. The district has moved our times up a bit for this year, so please make sure and notice that our tardy bell rings at 7:40. Students should be in the classroom when the bell rings at 7:40. We encourage parents to get their children to school between 7:20 and 7:30.


**Our school doors will be unlocked each day by 7:20am.


You may walk with your child/children to the classroom on the first day. After that, your child/children will be lining up in the gym for Kinder-4th grade, and the 5th graders will be in the cafeteria in the
mornings. Students will wait there, and the teachers will come and pick them up at 7:30am. Teachers and administrators are out each morning to help with arrivals as well as dismissals for those learners who might be new to TCE.
