January Begins Tarver's Health & Wellness Initiative

We're making some little changes here that are bringing forth some great benefits!  

Lunch and recess times have been flipped.  We’re seeing some great benefits including: Playground supervision ratios have been improved.  Kids just coming in from running and playing are more thirsty and hungry.  We’re seeing much less waste and know the kids are getting better nutrition.  Kids are returning to class more relaxed and ready to learn.

Infinite Campus Registration Information

What is the Campus Portal? Campus Portal is our tool for parents and students to access instant, online, timely and secure student information: class schedule, assignments, attendance, discipline, course registrations for next year, report cards and transcripts. Campus Portal is a means to further promote educational excellence by enhancing our program of communication with parents and students.

Who is eligible to have a Campus Portal account? Parents of current students are eligible to activate a Parent Portal account, after agreeing to the terms and conditions of use.

How much does the Campus Portal cost? Nothing. It is a free service to parents, and actually saves the district money by reducing paperwork and labor costs.
