Due to an increase in insurance premium for the 2014-2015 school year, we are posting a new insurance selection form here.  Parents that selected a one year policy last year or are new to the HS this year should download and complete a new form by the start of the school year.  This form must be completed as well as the 1:1 agreement before the ablets will be distributed to your student.  Parents that selected a multi-year policy last year do not need to complete the Insurance Selection form for the current school year.  This form can be downloaded here, or you can log into Infosnap and download the updated form from there.

Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation (TVSC) is pleased to announce its new Safe Schools Hotline, a service that provides a means of reporting incidents or possible threats before they happen, so TVSC can take the steps necessary to prevent them from taking place.

TVSC Safe Schools Hotline is a telephone application (voice or text message) that allows students, parents, and members of the community to report threats of violence, bullying, suicide, theft, gang activity, drug use, vandalism or any other concern at any TVSC school. With this telephone application, when someone calls the number to report a threat or problem, the caller is prompted to leave a message along with any other important information.  The message is immediately transmitted via telephone, cell phone and email to the building administrators and the TVSC school resource officer. TVSC has the ability to manage the calls through a web site, where school officials can see and download call reports. A full transcript of the call is transmitted with each email so that the administrator has first-hand knowledge of the call received.  A school administrator will evaluate the potential threat level and respond accordingly.

In a world where the unthinkable happens somewhere nearly every day, tools such as the TVSC Safe Schools Hotline are needed to help protect students and staff from a tragedy that no parent, teacher, or school administrator wants to deal with - ever.  If you have first-hand knowledge of a potentially harmful situation, please call the TVSC Safe Schools Hotline at (574) 387-3825.
