How to schedule a meeting:

2. Adam will assign a tutor to you and the tutor will send you an email with:  1. a meeting ID 2. time of your appointment
 
NOTE: All appointments must be made 24 hours ahead of time, as this gives us enough time to receive your email, set you up with a tutor, and schedule your appointment. Be patient for this email as it may not be sent until the day of your appointment.
3. Make sure you have your questions ready. 30 minutes goes by fast. This is not like the math lab where you can chill in the lab and ask a question when one arises.

INTERNET ACCESS DURING THIS TIME OF REMOTE LEARNING
 
Update on 4/3/20: THS received a batch of hotspots. Students who reached out and are on the list will be contacted to receive one the week of April 6.
Continue to reach out to teachers and counselors about internet access needs.
 
If you do not have internet access at home, please reach out to a teacher or your counselor.
THS has a number of hotspots available, but it is not guaranteed to have enough for all, depending on how many request one.
 
Be aware that some providers are offering free service and installation for 60 days for households with K-12 students who do not curently have internet.
 
 
#5 Enrichment resources
 
The coronavirus has certainly disrupted our lives and routines in many ways over the past several days. Taylor ISD is committed to protecting the health and welfare of our students and staff while at the same time providing instructional continuity during this time of school closure. While teachers are posting weekly assignments, resources have been compiled for reference or enrichment here.
