Principal’s Message

September 23, 2020

Dear T.F. South Families,

Please see this linked attachment for an important message from Dr. Sophia Jones-Redmond, Superintendent of Schools.

I have two other information items to share.  Due to lack of traditional registration this year, it has come to our attention that many families have not completed applications for free/reduced fee status.  If you have not yet done so, please see the following link:

Free/Reduced Fees Application

Secondly, information will be coming out next week about signups for virtual Parent/Teacher conferences.  Conferences will be held on Thursday, Oct. 8 from 2-4:30pm and again from 6-8pm.  Please watch your emails for more information.

I know that remote learning is not easy, or desirable, for all of us, but I can't speak highly enough for the dedication and resilience I have observed.  These young scholars' lives will be forever changed from enduring (and ultimately, overcoming) experiences unimaginable pre-2020.  Stay safe, be well, and thanks for looking out for one another.

Jake Gourley, Principal
