Wishing all of our families and staff a beautiful, restful and SAFE 2-week spring break beginning this afternoon! We cannot wait to see you all again on March 29! https://www.theprojectschool.org/article/406652
On Friday, March 5, The Project School reported one (1) confirmed case of COVID-19 through the State dashboard for school reporting; however, when completing the report the same student case ending up appearing multiple times. We then attempted to delete all but one, but the deletions did not work. We left a message about the technical problem with the ISDH. We suspect that due to the sheer volume of calls in the midst of a global pandemic, whoever received the message was unable to call us back. After the article published in the Herald Times on Tuesday, March 9 reported an erroneous number of cases, we reached out again to the State through an email to attempt to have the issue of incorrect data resolved. In our rush yesterday to share corrected data with our families and the community in order to alleviate concern, we inadvertently placed responsibility for this reporting error on the HT. However, we recognize that the error came about through a glitch in the state’s online reporting system, and that the HT received their data from this system. While we wish that the HT would have reached out to us for confirmation and clarification (so that we could have had the opportunity to inform them of the technical glitch before their reporting), we do recognize that the data error itself was not theirs and that they were simply publishing the information they had received. We apologize for mischaracterizing the original source of the error. As we have been since the onset of COVID, we have been completely forthright in our communication with our families and our community about this matter. We contacted anyone who had any possible need to know of this one reported case. We greatly appreciate those who reached out to us with messages of concern after seeing the inaccurate report!
IMPORTANT CORRECTION We learned just now that the HT erroneously published that TPS has 20 new reported cases of COVID. This data is highly incorrect. We actually reported ONE new case of an asymptomatic student, who has not had close contact with any other student or with any adult member of our school community. The HT apologizes for the glitch in their online reporting system, which accidentally inserted an incorrect number. They will be printing a correction. TPS will always be completely transparent about COVID data and about all other aspects of our school. Our appreciation to those who contacted us with concern!

We love being downtown! We're so close to many amazing resources - the public library, parks, theatre, museums, IU - to name just a few. They enrich what we do every day. And we're right where we need to be for families and staff who rely on public transit. We know our location can sometimes bring challenges (traffic, construction, parking!). We appreciate our families and staff who know that it's worth it. We're also grateful to kind neighbors who partner with us on staff parking solutions: Boys & Girls Clubs of Bloomington, Urban Station, City of Bloomington, IN - Parks and Recreation, and the delicious Bedräk Cafe and The Chocolate Moose. And just when we didn't think we could be more thankful to be here, we discover a super sweet video posted by a residential neighbor, sharing the story of the best part of her pup's day: when TPS students shower him with love while traveling safely to and from the park. It's great to be part of Bloomington's downtown! https://www.tiktok.com/@izzylicata/video/6932860826869091589?_d=secCgYIASAHKAESMgowHYhRYowoCdHIrZ6od%2BswtlgS10wNOddo4jHjhmF5n8quKY7JUtxraPeIkBFqMEkqGgA%3D&language=en&preview_pb=0&sec_user_id=MS4wLjABAAAAtT9eUf5BwxxA4oUqjxjCh6kP5CROYD2CB2oQvosxcR2h1Bkm4xZecW5pgHXiLyfL&share_item_id=6932860826869091589&share_link_id=84344235-37D2-4BC5-BE01-BC3871A67674×tamp=1614347440&tt_from=more&u_code=dbdi7gb6dcejb5&user_id=6806679677453927429&utm_campaign=client_share&utm_medium=ios&utm_source=more&source=h5_m&is_copy_url=0&is_from_webapp=v1&sender_device=pc&sender_web_id=6903949396501857798&fbclid=IwAR3kvIs3dKBl3vtjlbIK2JSByttir5iNZwiPy621U8SrPKquGam9olqop0A

TPS Families - please remember that Monday (February 15) is an optional conference day. There will be no classes (F2F or virtual).

Tuesday, February 9: As you know, we follow the decisions of MCCSC for weather cancellations or delays. As a result, The Project School will be all virtual (no F2F) today due to inclement weather. Watch for emails from your child's teacher, stay safe and warm, and be sure to spend some time enjoying this beautiful snow. Stay safe!

WE'RE CALLING A GOOD OLD FASHIONED SNOW DAY FOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 28! You read that correctly... since this is the very first real snow of the season, it just feels right to give all of our TPS families and staff the chance to get outside, make snow balls, and enjoy the quiet beauty of it all. This means that there will be NO in-person and NO virtual learning tomorrow. Just snow relaxation and fun. Remember that Friday is still an all-virtual day, and we do expect kiddos to be online, engaging with their learning. But tomorrow is all about fun, with nothing to make up. Wishing you a deep and restful sleep, and hopefully some joy and silliness tomorrow!
Our lottery for next academic year is open just a bit more than a month longer - it will close promptly at 5p on March 1. We are so happy to be hearing from many community members interested in our heart-mind-voice educational excellence. We don't want anyone to miss the opportunity to explore this for their children, so please help us spread the word! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd3LWBXKGDi5nmspLEkcIzk5oTM8yT9UlD-99b_s2W0oTomDw/viewform
Hello TPS Families! This week's Update has just landed in your in-boxes. It's short and sweet, but filled with important information for every family. Please take a look. Wishing you a peaceful and SAFE Sunday!
There is the possibility of snow, ice and poor road conditions overnight tonight and into Tuesday (January 19). For those who will be attending F2F tomorrow, we want to remind you that TPS follows the determinations of MCCSC regarding school delays and cancellations. If MCCSC delays the start of school tomorrow, we will do the same. This means a start time of 10:15a instead of 8:15a, if there is a delay. If we have a delay day tomorrow (or any day in the future), you'll be notified via a number of channels - you'll receive an email and text, and you'll be able to find the information both on our website and on our Facebook page. We hope that a delay tomorrow isn't necessary, but we want everyone to be prepared just in case. Wishing you a safe and peaceful day of reflection in honor of the legacy of Dr. King.
