Welcome to our COVID response page. Below you’ll find all the critical information about how TSMS is changing the way we operate to reduce the risk of COVID infection.

We are doing everything we can to make sure staff, students, and families are safe.


Please check back regularly, as we will update the information here as conditions change.

TSMS Blended Learning Schedule

Key Contact

We are starting the school year with a blended learning cohort schedule. That means that your child will be in school some days and working from home some days. If our school or district moves into a Health Emergency, we will switch to 100% remote learning for all students. Check this page for updates.

  • Group A will be in school on Tuesday and Wednesday and working from home Thursday and Friday.

  • Group B will be in school on Thursday and Friday and working from home Tuesday and Wednesday.

  • On alternating weeks, Group A or Group B will also come to school on Monday. 

  • Mondays will be used for catch up and small group purposes. The group scheduled for in-person learning that week will still come to school and be given opportunities for extension and support.

  • If you would prefer a 100% online learning schedule for your child this year, you can opt in at any time. Either complete the DOE survey or contact Shirley at slee@tsmsonline.org to enroll.

  • The school day will run from 8:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Students who will be in school in-person should arrive to school by 8:10 for temperature checks and entrance procedures.

If you have any questions about the COVID-19 plan, please contact Shirley Lee:
