Did you know that children can suffer academically if they miss 10 percent of school days? That’s just a couple days each month. Absences add up, whether they’re excused or unexcused. This September, join the Attendance Awareness Campaign and let’s work together to help all kids attend today so they can achieve tomorrow.
Hello, Parents and Guardians of Trona High School. We are excited about the start of school. Attached you will find the new school map detailing student drop off for the High School, student parking and the school entrance. Please remember the high school starts at 7:30 AM. Please be aware that on Tuesday, we will be going over the earthquake procedures and having an earthquake drill on Wednesday at 10 o’clock. In addition, we will also have crisis counselors here at the school for any students that may need them (trauma from the earthquake). Wednesday, September 4th we will be having “Back to School Night” from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Please arrive on time. We will be having you on a bell schedule. A flyer will be going out on Tuesday. Thank you so much for your patience. If you have any questions please email Joseph Wolfe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the recent earthquakes and the damages done to the high school campus, school will start for both schools on Tuesday, September 3, 2019 at the elementary campus.
Dear Trona Parents/Guardians/Community:: Tonight, the Trona Board of Education approved the new start date for Trona High School and Trona Elementary. It will be on September 3rd, 2019. As of right now, school will finish at the same time on June 4th, 2020. Safety is and remains our highest priority for students and staff. Because of damages from the earthquake, there is no water at the high school. Currently, there is no timeline as to when it will be completed. In light of this, it is necessary for Trona High School to start school in the A wing at the Elementary campus. We will offer the same high school courses as planned. The Elementary school will be moved into the B wing. It is important to understand that the two schools will be separated. We are working on creating a separate experience for both schools. The elementary office will be in the B wing and the high school will be in the A wing. This is a temporary solution until we get more information on more permanent solutions. We are taking the necessary precautions to ensure that the two schools are separated (fencing). At this time both high school and elementary offices are open until we notify you that the high school office staff is moved to the elementary building. As we continue to make progress towards this move, we will continue to keep you informed. We will be scheduling a parent meeting in the near future to answer any questions that parents and students may have. We are grateful for your support. If you have any questions please contact Dr. Keith Tomes email@example.com and or Joseph Wolfe firstname.lastname@example.org.
Because of the recent earthquakes, outside communities have graciously donated school supplies and backpacks for all students TK-12th grade. Please come down to Trona Elks Lodge on Saturday, August 17th at 12:00 noon and pick up your backpacks and school supplies. The backpacks will have the supplies needed per grade level (k-6). High School students will also be included, however not all supplies will be included depending on the teachers and subjects.
This Monday from 5 to 7 pm, mandatory football practice begins. If you are interested, please come out. Physical forms are available in the high school office. Please get your sports physicals done as soon as possible and bring in the forms signed by your doctor to the high school office. J. Wolfe
