Dear Troup County School System Community,
Governor Brian Kemp just issued an Executive Order mandating all schools in Georgia will remain closed for in-person instruction for the remainder of the school year. This includes TCSS.
Please note that current grade calculations will be based upon student mastery of material covered through March 12, 2020 which was the end of the third nine weeks grading period. Student learning will continue after our scheduled Spring Break. We don’t want our kids to lose the valuable knowledge and skills they have gained this school year. Teachers will be contacting their students and working with them to ensure additional opportunities are available for students to demonstrate mastery of previously covered material. More details will be available the week of April 13th.
At this time, we do not have any further updates. We know there are academic milestones and other events that our students and families were looking forward to this year. As updates are available, we will share them.
Over the past several weeks, our commitment to the students and the families of TCSS has been paramount. We will continue this commitment through the closure. Together, we will all get through this.
Welcome to West Point Elementary School, Home of the Bulldogs! It is my privilege to serve as the Principal of West Point Elementary and to be part of such a dedicated and caring faculty and staff. West Point Elementary is one of only a few neighborhood schools in our district. In fact, we have a tradition of providing an extraordinary education to students in our community.
As you enter West Point Elementary you will notice the warm, family feeling among students and staff. We understand that developing relationships with students, keeping them safe, and showing them we care is essential in helping all of our students succeed. We also recognize that building strong bonds with our parents and the local community is vital to the success of our school.
Our school is staffed by highly trained and certified professionals. Whether it is using technology to enhance instruction or creating lessons that promote higher order thinking, our teachers are always looking for ways to engage our students in their learning. Our students are involved in their learning by setting goals and monitoring their progress.
I am confident it will be a wonderful year and I look forward to working with you to ensure your child’s academic success.
Jan K. Franks
