We look forward to welcoming you to what promises to be a phenomenal school year! Our new administrative team members and the entire faculty and staff are busy preparing for our scholars’ arrival. Please take a moment to review the following information to ensure we get off to a great start.
As we ramp up academic expectations, it is critical that all students are ready to learn. The
recommended supply list is a general list of supplies needed for school. Review the course syllabi carefully as some teachers may require additional supplies.
Did you notice the steel beams at the entrance of our school? Our new front entrance will be completed late January 2017. Picture a glass entrance with a beautiful reception area and an impressive atrium. In the interim, please enter our campus from the gymnasium parking lot (near Dairy Queen). After 7:45 am, all student drop offs will occur in the gymnasium parking lot as Bulldog Boulevard (Jefferson St.) is the designated bus lane. Students should not arrive before 7:30 am; we want all scholars properly supervised while on campus.
Students are expected to wear appropriate attire for school and school-sponsored activities. The campus dress code is posted on the school’s website; it is critical that all students adhere to the dress code expectation as outlined.
Textbooks will be issued during the first week of school. Be sure to purchase a locker ($10) during Open House or advisory (homeroom) time.
Follow us on Twitter (@TriCitiesHS_GA and @TermerionMLakes) for frequent program updates and good news! Our website is another way to stay up to date on school events.
Registration and withdrawal will occur in the school auditorium. Families seeking to register or withdraw should park in the Performing Arts Building parking lot and enter through the auditorium.
High schools are very busy places; therefore, we are unable to receive food deliveries for students during the day. Fortunately, all TCHS students receive free breakfast and lunch through the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).
We are ready to receive you Monday, August 8, 2016 for the first day of school. Jump start the semester by reporting on time with a winning attitude – the school day officially starts at 8:20 am. Enjoy the remainder of your break and I look forward to working with you!

Move On When Ready Changes
Move On When Ready (MOWR), the state program for students who want to participate in college courses while also enrolled in high school, has recently undergone updates at the state level. Detailed MOWR information can be found at the following link –
Students should be able to participate in MOWR per the state law in January 2016/spring semester, if they meet the following criteria:
1. The student must apply and be accepted into the post-secondary institution for the spring 2016 term.
2. The student must meet the post-secondary institution and state deadline for completing the MOWR Student Participation Agreement Form
3. The student must be able to remain on track for graduation if they are changing their schedule to participate in MOWR.
If you have questions regarding MOWR, please contact Kevin Scott and or your child’s counselor.
