Cultural Studies Class Makes Guatemalan Worry DollsCultural Studies class has been learning about global issues. They watched a documentary about poverty in Guatemala and made Guatemalan Worry Dolls. Guatemalan Worry Dolls originated in Mayan history. The legend is that if you are kept awake at night because of your worries and stresses, you can tell them to your Worry Doll and they will take your worries and stress away so you can get a good night's sleep.

School Fee, Proof of Residency and Food Service Info!

ANNUAL SCHOOL FEE

We are asking our families to help with expenses by paying the annual school fee of $35.00. You can pay with credit card, cash, check or money order in person or by mail. You may also pay with a credit card online via the TCS School Store at this link: TCS Online Store


PROOF OF RESIDENCY

In addition to the Registration information, we are mandated by the Ohio Department of Education to obtain a new proof of residency every school year. This may be a copy of a utility bill or bank statement (dated on or after July 1, 2022). Proof of residency can be sent separately in the summer. Please mail, drop off or e-mail your proof of residency to [email protected]. But it must be submitted on or before the first day of school.


FREE AND REDUCED SCHOOL MEALS APPLICATION

The USDA will not be extending the pandemic related food service program waivers for the 2022-23 school year. This program has allowed The Graham Family of Schools and other school districts to provide free lunches and breakfasts to all students since the spring of 2020. All families should fill out a Free & Reduced School Meals Application to see if they qualify for free or reduced meal pricing. Please complete the application and return it to the front office as soon as possible. The TCS front office is open Mon.-Fri. 9:00am-3:00pm. Click here to print complete the application.

SCHOOL REPORTING ORDER

Governor DeWine announced details for Ohio's forthcoming case reporting order for K-12 schools.

Beginning Tuesday, September 8, parents or guardians and school staff should notify their school within 24 hours of receiving a positive test or a clinical diagnosis. Within 24 hours after receiving that notification, the school should notify other parents and guardians about that case in writing, providing as much information as possible without releasing protected health information. The school must also notify their local health department within 24 hours. 

Beginning Tuesday, September 15, and each Tuesday thereafter, local health departments will report the number of newly reported and cumulative cases to the Ohio Department of Health. The Ohio Department of Health will publish this data by school or school district, including a breakdown by students and staff, each Thursday.

"We understand there is a balance between privacy and transparency, and we do not intend for protected health information to be released in our effort to provide information to Ohioans so they can make the right decisions for their family," said Governor DeWine. "Please remember that if a school has positive cases among their students or staff, it does not mean the school did anything wrong. Schools cannot control spread in the community, so it is important to practice safety measures not only in the classroom but also when you’re out in the community."

The order will also require each school district or school to identify a COVID-19 coordinator to facilitate the reporting of case information, and upon request, schools or buildings are required to provide the local health department a copy of their pandemic plan.
