    To All Northside Rams- Students, Parents, and Community Members,

     

    I hope this letter finds you and your family well and enjoying this time spent together. The NMS Faculty family and I want you to know how much we appreciate you and your student and how much we have missed them during this time away. With the new directives given today from Governor Ivey and Dr. Mackey, my mind and my heart are both so very full. As you now know, the traditional school services will no longer be offered for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. At this time, we are still in need of further information from our superintendent and central office staff to determine how we will approach the challenge of teaching our students from home starting on Monday, April 6th. With that said, the NMS faculty and staff family will be meeting in the next few days to create some supplemental resource opportunities to share with you for your students until further directives are given from our superintendent and the central office staff. 

     

    Please remember that the community feeding program is offering breakfast and lunch, Monday-Friday at Northside High School from 11:00-1:00.

     

    A TCSS Help Line has been established as a means for our students, parents and community to gain valuable information. The purpose of the Help Line is to provide information to questions anyone may have about school operations, gain social services help, or get connected with local school administrators. The help line number is 205-342-2920. This line will be available from 8:30 am until 11:00 am on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays starting Friday, March 27th.

     

    We know this is a hard and stressful time for all. However, the Northside Community will make it through these hard times! WE ARE RAMS! WE ARE CHAMPIONS! As champions, we will rise to the occasion and come out of this situation stronger than we started! I am so very thankful to be part of such an awesome community! Please know that you and your families are in my thoughts and prayers! If you need anything during this time, please feel free to email me at amfranks@tcss.net

     

    Go Rams!

    What is the Anonymous Alerts App?
     
    The Anonymous Alerts anit-bullying and safety app reporting system helps combat bullying and other negative activity in schools by empowering students to speak up.  Social and peer pressure are some of the hardest obstacles for students to overcome.
     
    The system allows for 1-way or 2-way anonymous encrypted communication between submitters ( students, parents and community members) and district administration and/or school staff.  Users of the system have the option to remain anonymous or reveal their idenity when submitting a report. 
     
     
    How does it work?
     
    Anonymous Alerts moblie applications can be downloaded directly from the AppleGoogle Play or Chrome Stores.  Tuscaloosa County School System supplies students with an activation code (tuscaloosacounty), making the app remarkably easy to use and students select which school the message should be sent.  In addition, informational posters explaining how to use the app will be displayed throughout the schools and offices in the district. 
     
    Anonymous Alerts will allow students to report suspicious activity.  When a student submits the anonymous report, administrators will recieve a notification of the report and will be able to act on reports in a timely manner.  The system will be monitored from 7:30 to 3:30 each week day.
