Attendance for Middle / High School Effective 11-18-20: Even during times of virtual instruction, we are required to keep accurate attendance records. In accordance with guidance from the Pennsylvania Department of Education, attendance collection will be a two-fold process in which 1) students are expected to complete a daily attendance form (sent directly to their TMSD email each day) AND 2) keep up to date will all assigned work. This attendance form must be completed by the student by 11:00 AM each day. In addition to collecting daily student attendance reports, TMSD teachers will be monitoring completion of assignments and reporting concerns to district administration weekly. Failure to show consistent engagement and participation during virtual learning may result in a referral to the truancy officer.
