     TCSS Help Line

    The Help Line number is (205) 342-2920. It opened for the first time on March 27 from 8:30 - 11:00. This is a way for our families to ask questions, connect with school administrators, learn about resources in our community, and more. A translator will be available. Along with our TCSS families, we learned just yesterday that traditional face-to-face instruction for this school year has ended. Moving forward, we will continue to serve our students, and we are quickly crafting a plan to do so. We will be updating our web site frequently, and contacting our families through phone calls and other methods, with much more information.

      Recipes from The Valley

    Recipes from the Valley

    The time has come, and the Sipsey Valley Middle School cookbooks titled Recipes from the Valley have arrived! This has been a labor of love weeks in the making because our community's recipes are finally compiled and ready for use. We have collected over 100 recipes from students, teachers, parents, and other community residents (New Hope Baptist and First Cumberland Presbyterian to name a few). Contact Mrs. Lowry if you are interested in purchasing.
