Picture Day Guidelines

All students must have a photo taken by our school photographer, Photos by Greg, to be in the yearbook. This includes Seniors.

Picture Day is August 31.  Re-take Day is October 31.  To have your picture included in the yearbook you must have your picture taken on one of those days.  Again that includes Seniors.

On the day you have your picture taken, you will see your picture immediately to approve the shot.  If you DO NOT like the picture it will be retaken at that time.  Re-take Day is for students who were absent on August 31.  
If a student misses both days that student will need to see Mr. Henderson by November 15 to arrange a photo. Again this includes Seniors.

Seniors must have their yearbook photo taken by Photos by Greg to be included in the yearbook.  All Seniors should plan to get their picture taken on August 31 or October 31.  Seniors should dress accordingly.  

Seniors must have their picture taken by Photos by Greg by December 1 for inclusion in the yearbook.  The yearbook photo taken by Photos by Greg for Seniors is free of charge.  Seniors may have photos taken by other photographers but those photos CANNOT be used in the yearbook.

Any questions please call Mr. Henderson at (765) 675-7431 ext 181 or email at fhenderson@tcsc.k12.in.us

WeatherBug's Lightning Alert System at Tipton

Tipton Community School Corporation is a WeatherBug School. The WeatherBug Program collects weather data from our local site. This information is available to anyone in the community. Individual only need to download the program on their computer or app on their smartphone to receive weather information directly from Tipton. (Google WeatherBug)

TCSC included the Lightning Alert System in the project. The outdoor alerting system is a valuable community tool in alerting not only school patrons, but also patrons of the city park, the baseball diamonds, and fairground participants when lightning is in the immediate area. This system will sound a horn when lightning is detected eight miles away. This is a warning that people outside should seek shelter. (Click on the Blog's title to see full article including a map showing the range of the Lightning Alert System.)

Approximate range of the Lightning Alert Horns at TCSC.
When lightning is within 8 miles of the school, a fifteen (15) second alarm will sound. When lightning has cease to exist within this range for at least thirty (30) minutes, an all-clear signal will be given which is a series of three (3) short alarms of (5) seconds in duration each. Lightning alerts will also be received through individuals’ downloaded computer and phone applications.

The alarms will be activated between the hours of 6:00 am through 10:00 pm. This will prevent the alarms being sounded through the night or early morning hours.

Social Media Safety Info for Parents

In the corporation’s last newsletter, a web site was shared on how parents can keep their children safe when using electronic devices. Netsmartz Workshop (http://www.netsmartz.org/Parents ) provides tips for parents when children use cell phones, email, gaming, social networking and others. In addition, WLFI (Channel 18, Lafayette) recently aired a segment “Decoding digital teens: How to crack the codes.” (http://wlfi.com/2016/02/04/decoding-digital-teens-how-to-crack-the-codes/ ).  This gives parents insight on what the different abbreviations and codes mean.  CNN also recently aired a piece that may be helpful to parents on Social Media Red Flags (http://www.cnn.com/2016/01/25/health/social-media-red-flags-for-parents/).

Children are more often approached by predators when using cell phones. Parents are encouraged to be vigilant and be aware of what their children are doing and with whom on their devices. They should report any suspicious activity to the proper authorities. Hopefully, it will never happen. But watching the news, we all know that it can happen.
