school delays & cancellations


    Our goal is to hold school on every scheduled day of the academic year, and to begin on time. However, Mother Nature doesn't always agree with our plans! In the event of inclement weather, it sometimes becomes necessary to either delay the start of the school day, or cancel the school day all together.
    To simplify things for our families, TPS follows the decisions of the Monroe County Community School Corporation (except for delays on Wednesdays - see note below).
    If MCCSC cancels school, TPS will always cancel school, as well.
    On Monday / Tuesday / Thursday / Friday, if MCCSC announces a 2-hour delay, then TPS will also have a 2-hour delay. On Wednesday, if MCCSC announces a 2-hour delay, then TPS Leadership will determine whether or not TPS will be in session. On Wednesdays only, TPS will both call and email all families by 6:30a to share the decision.
    We will post delays and cancellations in the "announcements" section of our homepage and on our Facebook page, whenever possible. We will also notify local television and radio stations for broadcast. However, you can always check the upper right hand corner of the MCCSC homepage any time, to check for their announcement (however, see above for Wednesday delay information, which may be different than MCCSC). Look for their easy-to-read "stop light" system: green means all systems go, yellow means school delay, and red means school cancellation.
    Weather Make-Up Days
    TPS utilizes a Charter Authorizer-approved Distance Learning program whenever there is a school cancellation. Distance Learning consists of learning activities for students to do at home, in order to make up missed school work due to weather related incidents. TPS provides materials (both electronic and print) for students to be able to stay caught up on curriculum. Because of this Distance Learning program, TPS does not schedule any weather make-up days into the annual calendar.
