Dear Parents and Legal Guardians,
Back Pack
Please be advised that as a result of the action taken by our TCSS Board of Education clear and/or mesh back packs are not required for the 2015-2016 school year. We do prefer that you invest in this item but we understand that they are difficult to find at times and they are not as resistant and durable as other back packs.
Also, as you go shopping for school supplies please remember that we have a very specific dress code. We have posted our Dress Code policy on our website in the Parent Info section under Important Information for you to easily print when you take your child shopping for school clothes.
