Principal's Message

Greetings Tiger Family,

Week 1 of Distance Learning was a success! Many students are continuing their education opportunities by participating in our OCPS TPE Canvas Online Learning. Teachers and students were able to reconnect and continue standards-based learning experiences. In addition, some of our Tiger Scholars are continuing their Distance Learning by working on standards-based Learning Packets. We would also love to have you join us virtually, when possible. All Tiger Scholars should be granted the opportunity! If you have an older sibling in middle or high school you may use their OCPS Laptop, a cell phone or a home laptop/computer, please join the Virtual Learning Exploration by logging onto your OCPS Student LaunchPad. Week 2 Learning Packets were mailed to all students for this upcoming week. Our main office will be open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., by appointment only. Call or email the school for appointments. Our Student Food Distribution new hours are 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. we have to locations available the bus loop for vehicles and the Walker Udine Gate for Walkers, Bike Riders, and Wheelchairs. Each student must be present in order to receive a 1-Breakfast and 1- Lunch.  

Let’s make Week 2 another great opportunity of LEARNING AND GROWING!
