A place where you very well might see a child taking his very first steps in the hall or a student nearing his mark for graduation. Hear the sounds of preschool children singing of Dinosaurs, Days of the Week and Hungry Alligators. A place where each individual is valued regardless of abilities or disabilities; each child is taught according to his or her specific needs, and every child experiences success – whether in the small turn of a head, in the production of an award winning work of art, or in an improvement in self-control and self-reliance. Now, open your eyes and witness these very special imaginings becoming a reality! Lloyd Wood Education Center, home of Sprayberry Center, Pre-K, GRAD Academy and ELEVATE where barriers are overcome and all students triumph.
Although TCSS is seeing higher reports of flu in a few isolated areas, our system is not experiencing high reports of flu district-wide or large increases in absences. We're working to keep it that way!
TCSS is working to fight flu, and you can help.
Fever: If you have a fever, stay home at least 24 hours after you no longer have a fever, without the use of fever-reducing medications.
Wash Hands: We're encouraging hand washing in our schools and making sure hand washing supplies are readily available.
Clean: Routinely clean surfaces that are touched often, such as phones, desks, and computer keyboards.
Flu Vaccine: If you have not had a flu vaccination, it is not too late to get one. The Centers for Disease Control encourages flu vaccination as long as flu viruses are circulating.
