Hello families!

Tyger Clubs after-school program spring schedule starts Jan. 25! We have plenty of fun activities designed to help students brush up on academic skills, get some exercise, learn new skills and discover more about themselves and the world around them. Please encourage your middle school student to participate online or in-person.

We follow the same schedule for after-school time as daytime. For example, if students are coming to school under the blended schedule, the same will apply for after-school. Tyger Digital Academy students will meet online every day. Homework Help on Fridays meets online only.

 
We also will follow the same guidelines regarding COVID procedures for safety. Students will be required to wear masks unless they are exempt, and follow social distancing guidelines. Students will remain in the same classroom for the two hours they will be in clubs. We have secured a hallway in the middle school for the academic and health and wellness clubs, which isn't being used for day classes. The classrooms are close to the restrooms and water fountain. Classrooms will be sanitized daily. Career Tech clubs will meet in their areas, and the same procedures apply.

Transportation is provided. Note: Bus transportation may not be available the first week for students new to the clubs. A letter will be sent home to confirm the bus start date.
