Dear Tiverton Public Schools Community,
We continue to work diligently in reviewing all of our safety and security procedures and polices. As a result, we have instituted several changes and we will begin work soon with a safety consulting company, Synergy Solutions. Below is a link to the presentation that I provided the School Committee on Tuesday, February 28, 2023. In addition each school principal in making school safety the focus of their upcoming School Improvement Team and PTO meetings. The schedule of those meetings is also linked below.

Tiverton Public Schools Safety Meeting Schedule
One item that I wish to share with you is the attached training video on ALICE designed for parents and community members to understand this protocol designed to respond to an intruder. The video provides useful footage for a parent to explain ALICE to their child. We will be providing ALICE training to our high and middle school students.
We have been using a new technology in our high school science classes to help our students learn - take a look.
• The next School Committee meeting is Tuesday, March 7, 2023 at 7:00 p.m. in the high school library. The main topic of the agenda is the school budget for next school year.
• Below are community notices for Tiverton Youth Baseball and Softball and Flag Football
• Winter has arrived and so is my responsibility to make the sometimes-unpopular decision to delay or close the school buildings due to inclement weather conditions. The document below outlines that process:
Below I have shared some reminders. Please take a moment to review this information that helps support our schools.
Early Risers Before School Program: Should you need to drop your child off at our schools prior to the scheduled start time, please consider enrolling your child in our Early Risers Program that is available to all Fort Barton, Pocasset, Ranger and TMS students for a nominal fee. The Tiverton Public Schools is proud to offer this successful before school program for any students in grades K - 8. The Early Risers Program allows families to drop off students anytime after 6:45 AM at the designated location. Early Risers is open every day that school is open and is a fun and friendly program that allows for students to socialize through crafting and other activities. For more information on the Early Risers Program, visit our website HERE. Registration is required to participate in this program. It is really important for planning purposes, to register your child as soon as possible. Your timely registration is greatly appreciated so that the Early Risers Program Coordinator can continue to provide an excellent program for your child.
