THS faculty and administrators to begin checking on students and families

Trenton High School

Trenton High School Principal Kasey Bailey reports faculty and administrators will check on students and families this week to make sure they have access to lessons posted to Google Classroom.

Part of the effort is to identify families that do not have regular and reliable access to the internet. Families that have that problem are asked to contact the high school office from 8 to 10 o’clock in the morning at 359-2291.

Teachers will continue to post weekly assignments to Google Classroom and make printed copies of lessons available to students to pick up by appointment. Starting Monday, assignments will be posted that may be completed for a grade. Dual credit and online courses through North Central Missouri College will continue to progress with lessons through the regular curricula with normal grading as per NCMC policy. Students are encouraged to work with teachers on lessons by contacting them through Google Classroom or by email.

Students are not allowed to collect personal items from lockers or classrooms at this time. Scholarship information will continue to be sent to seniors by email and posted to the THS website. Bailey says the school is planning to reschedule prom but a new date will not be set until later in April. If the situation does not improve, prom may be canceled. Graduation is still scheduled for May 10th.

Bailey adds that school staff expressed appreciation to students, families, and the community for working through these circumstances, calling it “remarkable and inspiring” to see the ways individuals and the community have overcome obstacles.
