Welcome to E-learning at TSCA


Please visit this page frequently; it will serve as the repository for all-things distance learning until we are able to gather in person again at school.

Our goal during this time of uncertainty is to continue delivering an exceptional learning experience for all students. Although the e-learning environment will never replicate in-person instruction, our hope is to continue to build academic skills, nurture social-emotional learning, and deepen relationships between teachers and students.

TSCA is currently operating under a Shelter in Place situation per our mandates by Judge Clay Jenkins. The following E-Learning Plan was created in response to our current situation surrounding COVID-19. This plan is designed to provide direction during this uncertain time and will be updated as needed.

TSCA will revisit and reevaluate our instruction plans every two weeks and will reach out to parents with updates, with the intention of getting back to in-person instruction as soon as possible. You can also view all updates on the COVID-19 outbreak.

The schedules and learning materials provided below, will start Wednesday, March 25th and continue at least through Friday, April 3rd. TSCA will then determine if an extended school closure needs to occur.

You will receive ongoing updates regarding our continued plans.
