Students should arrive no earlier than 8:10 a.m., as there is no outdoor supervision before that time. Students should not be dropped off in the morning until a TCS staff member is clearly visible and on duty. Homeroom begins promptly at 8:20 am. Any student arriving after 8:20 am. must be accompanied to the school office by a parent/guardian or carpool driver. Those students repeatedly arriving after 8:20 a.m. will be marked “tardy” and will not be permitted to enter a class that is in session. It is imperative that students arrive on time so as not to disrupt instruction.



Dismissal is promptly at 3:00 p.m. TCS students should be picked up in the car pool line in the front of the building. During dismissal time, the traffic flow may become congested. Students are asked not to walk between parked cars. Teachers or assistants will wait outside with students until 3:10 pm. At 3:10, remaining students will be sent to Homework Club/After-Care and parents will be billed accordingly.

Students who leave school early (i.e. for medical or other appointments) should be “signed out” in the main office by the parent. Please note that there are “15 Minute Drop Off” parking spaces in the parking lot.

If the school day has already started when weather becomes an issue, TCS will remain open as long as the University remains open. However, parents are welcome to pick up their children at any time they feel conditions warrant.
