Welcome Back Information

Posted by Willie Jarman on 8/15/2020

Monday, August 17th, will be the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year.  We have posted information on the Trexler website to inform and remind you of guidelines and procedures we will be following.  This information is under the Trexler Reopening for 2020-2021 tab on the home page and includes: the TMS student handbook,  a Commuter flow map, Arrival and Dismissal procedures, Covid-19 screening questions, Master schedules for the school day, The online school fees Link, and the Trexler Reopening for 2020-2021 quick glance plans.  You can also access the Onslow County Schools Return to Learn Information which includes the OCS Return to Learn Parent Guide.

I want to emphasize a few important things to know for the first week of school.  Students will be screened before they get out of the cars and off the bus.  Any walkers will be screened, as well, before entering the building.  Please use the screening questions before you leave home with  your child/children.  This will help speed up the screening process when you arrive at school.  If anyone in your home can answer yes to one or more of the questions, please, stay home! 

Face coverings are required for all students to enter the buildings.  There are no exceptions the first week of school to this requirement.  A written request for an exemption with the reason for an exemption must be submitted to administration for review.  We will not approve any requests during the first week students are back on campus.   

The building will not be open to parents and visitors during arrival and dismissal times.  All staff will be in duty stations to monitor students and direct them to their classrooms upon arrival.  We will not be able to address questions, concerns or requests until the students are in their classrooms and the school day has started.  I apologize for the inconvenience this may cause for those who have issues, questions and concerns, but we will be all hands on deck to get students screened and in the classrooms. 

We have never started school under these circumstances, but we are a resilient community and have worked together to get through the last 2 school years of things we have never experienced before.  I have faith we will rise to this challenge as well.    

Thank you for your support and understanding and have a great weekend!
