  • School Closure for the 2019-20 Year

    By the order of Alabama Governor Kay Ivey and State Superintendent, Dr. Eric Mackey, all Troy City Schools campuses will remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year. Our administrative team met Friday and will be meeting next week to finalize a teaching and learning plan consistent with the order of the State Superintendent. We appreciate the patience and cooperation of our families and stakeholders as our administrators and teachers work together to provide a plan of action for the success of all Troy City Schools’ students as well as provide additional guidance and communication. We will communicate our plans for instructional delivery to all parents during the week of March 30, 2020.

  • Press Release from Interim Superintendent

    March 16, 2020


    Dear TCS Parents and Guardians:


    Please understand the timing of the closure of schools and the decision to release in the middle of the week was declared by Governor Kay Ivey. These decisions were beyond our control as they were mandated by Governor Ivey. Since the declaration, our administrative team and teachers have worked diligently to continue ensuring our students' safety and well-being. I shared my concerns related to attendance for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. As a result, the decision has been made at the state level to excuse students absent on Monday, March 16- Wednesday, March 18, 2020.

    However, I would like your assistance in order for us to continue educating our students during this extended school closure. Our administrators and teachers have worked to prepare enrichment and review packets as well as provide online resources for ALL K-12 students. The packets will be provided to students at the end of the day on Monday, March 16, 2020. For those students who were absent on Monday, parents/guardians may stop by the front office on Tuesday and Wednesday between 8:00-2:00 pm to receive a packet.

    Additionally, during the school closure, we will post links to academic resources on our school and district websites. We hope you will support our efforts in making sure our students continue to make academic progress during the school closure period. Furthermore, we also understand the need for our Child Nutrition Program (CNP) to assist with student meals during the school closure. A meal will be provided to any child ages 18 and under at Troy Elementary School on March 19, March 20, and March 30, 2020, from 11:00 am-1:00 p.m. After, Monday, March 30 we will reassess to determine whether there is a need in the community to continue to provide meals for the remaining days that week.

    I would like to thank the Troy City Board of Education and the TCS family for your continued
    support as we maneuver our way through such a critical time for our nation, state, and local
    communities. I assure you that your cooperation and understanding of decisions being made is greatly appreciated.


    Sincerely,
    Mrs. Cynthia G. Thomas,
    Interim Superintendent

  • Information on Coronavirus Disease

    TCS Families, Faculty, and Staff, 

    We want to let you know about our efforts to monitor coronavirus disease 2019, also known as COVID-19. The 2019 novel (or new) coronavirus causes a potentially severe respiratory illness. It was recently identified in China and is now being detected worldwide. Currently, there are no known cases in Alabama. We are coordinating with the Alabama Department of Public Health,
    local healthcare authorities, and the State Department of Education to be prepared with the most up-to-date information and guidance involving the virus. 

    The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) has guidelines in place for anyone who has traveled internationally to certain affected geographic areas. Find more resources about 2019 coronavirus through the Alabama Department of Public Health and Centers for Disease Control. The CDC also provides specific information for travelers. This information includes a list of areas with the sustained transmission of the virus and/or travel restrictions to the United States.

    According to CDC guidance, those returning from China or areas with active community transmission of 2019 coronavirus will have at least some restrictions on their interactions for 14 days after leaving the affected areas. According to ADPH, any students or staff in this group must remain out of school for the duration of this period. On March 5, the Troy City Schools
    Board of Education authorized the Interim Superintendent to follow all guidelines and exercise guidance from ADPH regarding the 2019 coronavirus. This includes any amendments to the guidance moving forward. Parents/guardians, faculty, and staff should notify your school’s principal of any upcoming out-of-country travel plans.

    In our schools, everyday health practices remain important. We encourage
    our students and staff to:

    • stay home when sick and until you are fever-free for at least 24 hours after
      the last administration of fever-reducing medicine.
    • practice frequent hand washing for at least 20 seconds at a time.
    • cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or sleeve.
    • avoid touching your face, mouth, nose, and eyes.
    • avoid being around those who are sick. 

     

    Although it will not prevent coronavirus, a flu shot is still recommended for those who have not had one this flu season. Ample cleaning supplies are in our schools and our custodians disinfect high-contact surfaces. Plans are currently being finalized for a meeting in the coming days, among local healthcare and education leaders, to discuss monitoring and prevention of 2019 novel coronavirus. 

    Families can stay up to date on 2019 novel coronavirus and recommended actions through the Centers for Disease Control and Alabama Department of Public Health. If new information results in how our schools respond to 2019 novel coronavirus, TCS will communicate this information to you. 


    Sincerely, 
    Cynthia Thomas
    Interim Superintendent
