Why’s the School Entrance Blocked Off?

Why’s the School Entrance Blocked Off?

By: Jim McKenzie

We’re excited about the addition of a new awning system that will provide cover in front of the school entrance as well as connecting the back of our school to the gymnasium and preschool building. If everything stays on schedule, construction will be completed in early March, just in time for the rainy spring season.

The first phase of construction involves the area outside the school entrance. As a result, we will be using the door at the rear of the building as the main school entrance.

Please drive slowly and carefully on campus. With the construction fencing now up, we have limited sidewalk space and decreased visibility, so be extra vigilant in driving carefully at school. And please be patient with traffic at peak pick up and drop off times as the construction may create some delays.

We’re excited about the awning system and what it will provide for our students and families when it is completed. In the interim, we appreciate your patience and cooperation to ensure everyone’s safety.

During a special Signing Ceremony in the gymnasium today, with all of the student body in attendance, three seniors signed their National Letters of Intent (NLIs) and scholarship offers to compete in collegiate athletics next year.

Nicole Rivera (volleyball) – Nova Southeastern University
Jamari Wheeler (basketball) – Duquesne University
Grace Daugherty (volleyball) – Lindenwood University

After signing their NLIs, the seniors pulled the cord and unveiled their college banners, joining a long list of TRS student-athletes who have earned college scholarships and gone on to play at the next level.

November 9-16 was an early signing period for the NCAA. Jenna Wiggs (volleyball) and several senior basketball players will likely sign during the regular signing period in the spring.
