Essentials

Here’s the essential info you need for the First Day.

  1. First day is August 24, 2015.
  2. Your schedule is available in Home Access Center .
  3. Schedules do not include details on Lunch times.
    You need to check your 3rd Period class and the Lunch Table below to figure out when you eat.
    You might eat at different times depending on the A/B Day.
  4. Go to your first period class on the first day of school. You always go to 1st and 5th period class everyday.
  5. The first day is an “A” day. Follow the A schedule after first period.
  6. Still have questions? Check below first, then ask @TCHSTalon if it’s not answered.

A/B Schedule Explained

Students will have the same first and fifth periods each day for 45 minutes, but will have second, third, and fourth periods on an A/B schedule. A Days will have students attending periods 1, 2A, 3A, 4A, and 5. B Days will have students attending periods 1, 2B, 3B, 4B, and 5. Complete times and additional details are available at this post: Hybrid Block Schedule

Counselor
Need a schedule change or have another question for your counselor? You need to send them an e-mail. Find their contact information at this link on the main TCHS Website: Counselor Corner

Please be patient. With over 3,000 students, Counseling is extremely busy during the first weeks of school. Walking into the counseling office for scheduling issues will not necessarily get your request answered more quickly.
