  • Inclement Weather

    With the chance of snow in our forecast, please listen to your local radio or TV channels for school closures or late starts. In the event of a two hour late start to our school day, TMS will follow a shortened schedule (click on the headline to see that schedule). All students coming from or going to other schools for classes will ride their regular bus and remain at their own school. This includes TMS students who go to BHHS for 1st period math class; you will remain at TMS during a Two Hour Late scheduled day. If you have any questions, please contact our main office at 360-709-7500.

  • TMS Parking Lot

    Hello TMS Families! Please do not use the exit driveway in our TMS parking lot as an entrance. With limited space and the constant motion of drop-offs and pedestrian foot traffic, we want to avoid any accidents that could be caused by people driving against the designated flow of traffic in our parking lot. Thank you very much for your help with this.
