I apologize in advance for the length of this email, especially in the summertime, but I think you will find the information contained in this message extremely helpful as you begin to look forward to the 2023-2024 school year. I hope that you are all enjoying the summer break! As I write this message, I am just now preparing to begin my summer break. As such, I want you to know that the Triad Middle School Office will be closed until Monday, July 24th. There will not be anyone in the office to answer phone calls or return emails until the office reopens in late July for the 2023-2024 school year. If you have questions that cannot wait until July 24th or need assistance with the online registration process, please reach out to someone at the Triad District Office at 618-667-5400, but I believe many of your questions will be answered in this email. Parents of incoming 6th graders who were not able to attend the 6th grade orientation event on May 23rd may be interested in checking out this 6th grade orientation night summary, especially if your incoming 6th grader is interested in signing up for band and/or chorus.

Triad District Registration:
Most families have registered their children for the 2023-2024 school year through our online process. If you have not already registered, please do so as soon as possible! Here's where the Online Registration information can be found. Parents/guardians of new students are encouraged to contact the Central Office at 667-5400 to answer any questions they have.
2023-2024 student schedules will be posted in Skyward by Tuesday, August 8th.
School Supplies & P.E. T-Shirts:
The 2023-2024 school supply lists for TMS can be found here (23-24 TMS Supply Lists).
All TMS students will have P.E. on their 2023-2024 schedule, regardless of other electives. Students will be required to purchase Triad P.E. shirts with their names on the back for the 23-24 school year. They will also be required to wear tennis shoes at all times. Triad P.E. shirts are available at many area vendors. All physical education students will be required to wear a standard uniform consisting of the following: a Triad P.E. T-shirt, (with last name on back), black shorts or athletic pants, athletic shoes and socks. Only Triad Physical Education T-shirts with the student’s last name imprinted on the back will be accepted. Approved P.E. shirts are sold at the following locations (and Kelly Tracy and Sew Time have online ordering links attached):
BJ Printables (formerly Designs & Stitches) (Troy) 618-667-4599 email@example.com
Gateway Impressions (Troy) 618-505-7544 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Open Building Event:
On Wednesday, August 9th the Triad Middle School hallways will be open for students to checkout their classroom locations and put school supplies in their lockers from 11:00am-7:00pm. Office assigned locker numbers and locker combinations should be posted on the students’ schedules when they are released in Skyward no later than August 8th. Feel free to test out your locker combination and place any necessary school supplies in your lockers before the first day of school. This would also be a great time for parents/guardians to drop off physicals, dental exam or eye exam forms in the office for the school nurse, Mrs. Becker. Voegele Photography will have cameras set up in the small gym on August 9th for Fall pictures. Fall pictures are used for student ID cards and for our TMS Yearbook.
Physicals / Important Health Services Forms & Links:
Please check out the Triad CUSD#2 Health Services page on the Triad website for important reminders on physicals, dental and vision forms, and other helpful forms and links. While all 6th graders need to show proof of a physical exam on a state approved physical exam form, all TMS students who plan on participating in a Fall Sport will need a current physical (less than 395 days old) in order to tryout or attend practices.
