Public Notification Statement

Tippecanoe Valley High School is striving to provide the best educational opportunities for our students. The Tippecanoe Valley High School website is one tool that we feel is an effective way to keep students, parents, and community members informed of various activities and programs going on here at the high school. We welcome your comments as we continue to refine our website to make it more user friendly. Please take some time to look over the information and let us know how we might better serve you at Tippecanoe Valley High School.

On Monday, December 8th, at 7:00pm, Senior students and parents are welcome to attend our annual financial aid meeting. Learn more about scholarship tips and financial aid resources for college! For more information, click here to download the flyer.

Dear Tippecanoe Valley High School Family:

We are all aware of the tragic passing of two teenagers in our community this school year. After such tragedies we all have a need to reflect and express ourselves.

We are proud of the action of our students, staff, parents and community members that have helped Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation during these difficult times.

We have a variety of supports at Tippecanoe Valley Schools to create a healthy environment for everyone including Rachel’s Challenge, Peer Facilitators, Friends of Rachel Group, QPR training for all staff, a community mental health task force and mental health counseling, not to mention the countless hours staff and students counsel and care for each other.

We are looking to do more and we need your help. We have ideas, but we want your input before we plan specific programs. The following ideas have been suggested at this point:

1. Bringing in a nationally renowned speaker to talk with our community about suicide, depression, and other mental health issues

2. Sharing resources about gun safety (Project Child Safe)

3. Increasing training for students, parents, community members and staff (QPR)

4. Implementing the Yellow Ribbon Program

5. Increasing access to mental health counseling at school

A public forum can be helpful, but not all persons can attend or wish to do so. We ask for your constructive thoughts.

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.
