TJ Final Instructional Days, Summer Enrichment, Item Drop Off & Pick Up

Final Instructional Days Next Week

Distance Learning continues through next week June 12. This means students follow their regular class schedule this week and again next week on Tuesday, June 9, and Thursday June 11. Office Hours will continue as normally scheduled through June 12.

Therefore, the last required day for student attendance is June 11 and teachers remain available to students via office hours on June 12. The last work day for teachers is Monday, June 15, to complete year-end duties and submit grades.


Summer Enrichment Opportunities

Due to school closures this past spring, and as previously communicated, TJ has evaluated its summer course offerings, determined which summer courses would be foundational to a STEM program, and considered our capacity to deliver online opportunities whether for credit or enrichment.

With the credit-bearing opportunities already advertised, this message serves as an update regarding summer enrichment programs for skills enhancement. Specifically, there will be optional opportunities aligned with TJ Chemistry and Humanities. These programs will be offered free at no cost to families.

Our focus will be on skills development that supplement certain curricula. The modules will have synchronous and asynchronous opportunities for students. We encourage students to register for a module if they desire additional support with  specific content areas or skills.

The modules are not required, not for credit and not graded. Students may register for multiple modules as long as the schedule does not conflict. More details may be found on the summer school website.

If you have any questions, please contact the Summer Programming Principal, Volita Russell,

Cost: Free for Current TJ Students Only

Dates: July 6-31

Registration: June 3 –  and ends July 1

Item Drop Off and Pick Up FAQ

Will students in grades 9-11 be able to drop off textbooks and other school items before the end of the school year?

  • Students will keep their laptops over the summer unless they are transferring schools or moving. Please contact our Technology Team Manager Mr. Leo Resquin at if you need to return a laptop.
  • Students will keep their textbooks through the last days of school as noted above, June 11 (instruction) and June 12 (office hours).
  • There are tentative plans to collect textbooks and other school items sometime between June 15 and July 1. This is subject to change based on state and local health and operating guidelines.

If students can keep their laptops, can they just keep their texts from this year?

  • We are uncertain about the status of next school year. Currently, we would like to gather all non-laptop materials, inventory the items, and prepare orders for the new school year as necessary.

Can a student pick up medication from the health clinic?

  • If you need to retrieve medication, please contact our school health aide Ms. Tanya Holloway at

Can a student retrieve essential and/or personal items of value that were left behind at school?

  • Similar to our work with the senior class, we will have a process for staff to gather items and prepare them for curbside pick up.

When will we hear more details?

  • We hope to have more information available no later than the week of June 15. Thank you for your patience as we try to make decisions that are timely and in accordance with local and state circumstances.
