      • Parents/Guardians:  Would you like your student to get their college education for FREE?  Then you need to look into the 21st Century Scholar Program.  Indiana’s 21st Century Scholars program offers income-eligible Hoosier students up to four years of paid tuition at an eligible Indiana college or university after they graduate from high school, dependent upon financial need.  Indiana’s 21st Century Scholars program began in 1990 to ensure that every Hoosier student can afford the opportunity provided by a college degree.  Today, eligible students who keep the Scholar Pledge to excellence in school (and life) receive a Scholarship to help pay for their college education.  In middle and high school, 21st Century Scholars are connected to programs and resources to help them stay on track for college and career success.  Once in college Scholars receive support to complete their college degrees and connect to career opportunities. To apply, go to www.learnmoreindiana.org/scholars/enroll and complete the online application.  For more information or if you have additional questions please contact our school counselor Miss Stiles at 574-598-2200 or [email protected]
      • Tippecanoe Valley hosts a 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.  If you have first-hand knowledge of a potentially harmful situation, please call the TVSC Safe Schools Hotline at (574) 387-3825.
  • Attention parents/family dropping students off at the main TVMS entrance before school or picking kids up after school.  DO NOT park in the parking spots on the circle unless you are coming into the building or are waiting for a student.  Please stay in order in the traffic lane of the circle and drop off/pick up your student at the NO PARKING area in front of the main entrance sidewalk.  DO NOT PASS other vehicles on the circle and be aware of kids getting in or out of parked cars.  Then exit the circle.  It is imperative that we follow this procedure to keep our students safe.  Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
