Dear TMSA Parents and Guardians,

Here are your weekly updates for the week of January 18th:

(1) Just a reminder that Monday, January 18th is a holiday so there will be no classes for staff or students on this day. TMSA students will continue learning remotely Tuesday with synchronous classes. The daily drive through lunch distribution will begin again this Tuesday, January 19th from 11am-1pm. EC and struggling students will have an opportunity to complete their remote learning experience on campus beginning February 8th. Any updates or decisions made to move forward with a different learning format plan will be shared with families promptly.

(2) Intent to Return forms were sent via email last week. Please complete and submit by the deadline. If you have any additional questions, email Mrs. Parks at

(3) The Parent Academy English as a Second Language (ESL) online class for parents is being held this Tuesday, January 19th at 6:00pm! Parents/guardians will learn English skills and gain information on how to support their student's academic success. Please find the link to join on our website or below.

(4) Message from Ms. E:  "Attention BAND parents and students, I am excited to announce this week's instrument exchange, January 19-22!

In order to make sure we are safe, we will have instrument turn-in only from 7:30am-3:30pm this Tuesday and Wednesday. Instrument pickup will only be available this Thursday and Friday.

Tuesday or Wednesday, when you arrive, please come to the front office door. You may either drop your instrument with an intern (if available) at the front door, OR, come in. If coming in, you must wear a mask, use hand sanitizer, have your temperature checked, and an intern will escort you to my room (or the hallway if we have a rush and must wait 6 feet apart). You or your student will drop off the instrument, and give your name (remember, I won't recognize you behind your mask) and instrument number. Once you are cleared, an intern will escort you back to the main entrance. Please leave the building immediately.

I can't tell you how excited I am for you to hear us all together at our online concert MAY 13th!

(5) We have a very busy week of HOME basketball this week! You can catch all the live action for the home games by joining our TMSA Athletics Facebook page.

Due to COVID restrictions, no spectators (including parents) will be allowed in the gym. However, all home games will be live streamed on our NEW TMSA Athletics page on Facebook. To see live coverage, join our Facebook page at

(6) Each year, we celebrate School Choice Week; this year, we will celebrate virtually from January 24-30. We would like to take this time to reflect on the remarkable experiences and wonderful resources we have at TMSA. Without school choice, we would not have the freedom to offer the amazing educational programs that we offer within our TMSA Public Charter Schools. Although we will celebrate virtually this year, the benefit is that this will allow for greater collaboration and unity between our schools. We plan to come together across all TMSA Public Charter Schools and unite for an evening of gratitude and celebration of School Choice! Please plan to join us on Thursday, January 28th, at 6 PM for an evening of sharing and celebration, along with a virtual magic show for students and families!

Thank you and have a great week!
