  • Online Grading System (FOCUS)
     
    Regular communication with your student's teachers and school is extremely important.  Parent(s) and/or Guardian(s) may access their student's grades and the teachers' websites through the district's online student information system (FOCUS).  Emailing your student's teacher(s) after accessing their grades and websites is a quick and easy way to ensure your student is on track and not falling behind in class.  Most teachers update grades weekly once school is up and running and the first assignments are graded.  Please allow longer for large projects or research papers that are time consuming to grade.  
     
    Students may access their FOCUS account using their district issued user ID and password.  Parent(s) and Guardian(s) must first register for an online account through the district's website, the link is included here.   Due to student privacy and security, logins and passwords cannot be given out over the telephone or by email.   Once a parent or guardian account is created and you have received your confirmation email, you have 21 days in order to come to the school with a picture ID and have your account validated.  After the account is validated you will be access it within 24-48 hours.  You only have to do this process one time and not for each individual child.

  • Counselor Appointments

    Appointments with School Counselors can be made by contacting the counselor directly (see extensions above).

    Parent-Teacher Conferences

    Teacher conferences can be scheduled by clicking on

    http://bit.ly/tlamconference or calling (904) 538-0825.

    Please allow teachers 24-48 hours to return your phone call or email (or until the next business day if over a weekend or holiday). Since your student's 7 teachers do not all have common planning time, it is not always possible to schedule one conference that would have all teachers in attendance. Please be advised that teacher work hours are 9:05 am to 4:25 pm and phone calls and emails made before or after those hours may not be answered right away. To limit classroom disturbances, all phone calls to teachers go directly to voicemail and do not ring directly into the classroom. When you call, please leave your name, your student's name if different from your own, and a call back number where you may be reached within the next 24 hours.
