Transfers to Tipton

Tipton Community School Corporation is accepting transfer student applications for the 2016-2017 school year.  If parents wish to transfer their student, please fill out the application  (Student Transfer Application rev 2015) or stop by the Administrative Office at 1051 S. Main St. to pick up an application.  If you have any questions, please call 765-675-2147.

Effective July 1, 2016, all transfer requests that exceed the available openings in a particular grade level will be subject to a lottery drawing to determine the accepted applications.  If requests received between July 1 and July 31 exceed the available openings, a lottery drawing will be held from those requests to determine which requests will be accepted.  If a drawing  is necessary, it will be held during the Board’s regular meeting scheduled for August 9.  Additional transfer requests will continue to be accepted through January 30 only if openings are available for the given grade level.  Transfer requests that were approved prior to July 1, 2016, have a secured spot for the 2016-2017 school year and will not be part of a potential lottery.

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.
