As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt the normal operation of businesses and organizations across the country, Trenton High School faculty and administration want to keep our patrons updated on the situation as it affects our students.
This week faculty and administrators will be checking up on individual students and families to make sure they have access to lessons that are being posted to Google Classroom. Part of that effort is to identify families that don’t have regular and reliable access to the Internet. If this is a problem for your family, please contact the High School office at 359-2291 between 8:00am and 10:00am so that we can assist you. Teachers have been and will continue to post weekly assignments to Google Classroom and make printed copies of lessons available for students to pick up by appointment. Beginning Monday, April 6th, teachers will begin posting weekly assignments that may be completed for a grade. These will be assignments from the regular course curriculum that are intended to help, not hurt, overall student learning and course grades. Dual Credit and online courses through NCMC will continue to progress with lessons through the regular curricula with normal grading per NCMC policy. We encourage students to work with their teachers during this time on lessons by contacting them through Google Classroom or by email. To resolve issues of picking up or delivering completed assignments for those without Internet access, please contact the High School office.
We are not at this time allowing students to come collect personal items from lockers or classrooms, including iPads and band instruments. If this situation changes we will send notification to the public through email, newspaper, radio, and our website.
Scholarship information, including eligibility requirements and issues with the A+ Scholarship, will continue to be sent to seniors via email and posted to the THS website.
Many patrons have asked about Prom and Graduation ceremonies. We are planning at this time to reschedule Prom but are refraining from setting a new date until later this month. If the situation does not improve it is very possible Prom may be cancelled. With this uncertainty, we would discourage anyone from making any definite plans or commitments for Prom for the foreseeable future. Graduation is still scheduled for the date planned. Any changes to the graduation ceremony will be made public as those decisions are made.
Finally, we at THS would like to thank our students, families, and the community for working with us through these unprecedented circumstances. It is truly remarkable and inspiring to see the many ways in which individuals and the community have stepped up to overcome obstacles during these challenging times. I’m so proud to be a Bulldog!
