School Update, October 19, 2021



What’s Happening at Trade Tech

October 19, 2021

Parents, you are the key to 

your child’s education!

State Law, COVID Mandates, etc.

We will continue to update all families when any changes occur that affect high school aged students.

We are a public charter school and are required to follow all state and local laws and mandates.

Currently many parents are trying to figure out the vaccination information.  Currently there is no requirement for students to be vaccinated.  Please check out the update about the vaccination.  If implemented by the governor, there will be a personal exemption available.  If implemented by the legislature and signed by the governor, it becomes law and they will have more information if that happens.

New Staff Members

We hired a new Manufacturing Teacher and a new Special Education Resource Teacher.  We are looking forward to better serving our students!

Make-Up Picture Day

Make-up pictures will be taken on October 25 for any students that missed picture day or purchased a package and want a retake.

Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences - Next Steps

Please keep in contact with your student's teachers.  The conferences were great, but just the start to your working relationship with the teachers.

Parent Meetings

We had over 10% of our families represented at the last parent meeting.  Our next parent meeting is October 29th.  Please check the website for times and Zoom link.  

Progress Reports

The end of 1st Quarter was Monday October 18.  Please look for the progress reports to be mailed home during the following week.  Encourage your student to get all their work turned in asap to receive credit.

Stay in Touch

Please do not wait for progress reports to be mailed.  Reach out to your student’s teachers and/or Advisor or check the Parent Portal online.
