Dear TIS Families,

We are so fortunate to have amazing teachers here in the Telluride School District and I am including a full list of all TIS teachers with their teaching assignments at the bottom of this letter.  This will hopefully help you put a face to a name during those first few days of school.  With this amazing staff, we are pleased to continue to offer strong core curriculum which daily includes 120 minutes of Language Arts instruction, 70 minutes of math instruction, and 70 minutes of Science or Social Studies.  In addition, students will continue to experience an amazing array of specials including Physical Education, Music, Art, Library, and Drama or Spanish. 

As you are aware, all students at TIS will receive a school issued iPad.  Through this 1:1 iPad initiative, teachers will integrate technology into instruction in meaningful ways that enhance educational opportunities.  We will also continue to utilize Schoology as an educational tool and also as a means to communicate with students and teachers.  Please look for more information from your child’s teacher or from Christopher Earthtree, our TIS Technology Coach, on how you can log into and interact with Schoology.

A few more nuts and bolts regarding school procedures:

  • Each day the first bell rings at 8:10 and school begins at 8:15.If students arrive early, they are to wait in a designated area where a duty teacher is present.
  • School ends at 3:15 each day.If you will be picking your student up after school, we ask that you wait outside rather than congregating in the hallways.Keeping the hallways clear of adults at the end of the school day helps us maintain building security as well as allows teachers to conclude the day with minimal distractions.
  • The Tuesday Early Release program will continue this year.Every Tuesday [with the exception of Ski PE weeks] school will release at 1:55 and buses will run at that time.
  • On the first day of school we will begin with a whole school assembly in the TIS gym at 8:15.Prior to going to your student’s classroom or locker, please proceed to the gym for this all school gathering.
  • Student attendance throughout the school year is of utmost importance to your child’s education.We ask that you make every effort to minimize student absences.

Other pertinent information such as bus schedules, school calendar, lunch menu, insurance applications, Free/Reduced Lunch application, etc. are located on the TIS Website.

Thank you so much for your continued help and support.  Education is a team effort and we are excited to partner with you throughout the school year in order to best support your child. 


Chad Terry, Principal
