Principal Announcement

At the end of the school year I sent a letter to parents indicating that I would be moving to GMCS District to serve as the Title lll/Bilingual Coordinator.  It has been my pleasure to work at TLE for three years and in partnership with students, parents and educators moved forward to successful performance and growth of student's academic skills.  I am pleased to share that Ms. Ophelia Sanchez will be taking the leadership role of being TLE's Principal beginning July 2017.  She will continue the work of literacy, cultural relevant school-student culture, and school-wide PBIS.  The 90 day school plan will also be a district expectation that will continue.  Your support as parents and community members is essential.  Thank you for the experience and support - I will continue to work with parents and community from the district level. 

REMINDERS: Tardy(ies) and Early Checkouts

 Student are expected to be on time to class. there are, however times when it is not in the child's control and the student may arrive late. students arriving late to school after 7:55 A.M. will need to sign-in at the office before entering the classroom. Five Tardy(ies) will equal one unexcused absence. After a student is tardy(ies) three times or more in two-weeks span, the school will contact the family with notice of concern. The same is relevant for chronic early checkouts within one week. Students who are checked out early often, miss out on important instruction. Excessive tardiness and early checkouts will result in a referral to the SAT to be placed on attendance contract. If students tardy(ies)/ early checkouts continue, the Attendance Committee will meet with parents/guardians to determine next steps to re-mediate continuous tardy(ies)/ early checkout and/ or to initiate school-district hearing authority contract; and if necessary a Social Service referral (CYFD)
