Every Year is Unprecedented

 Parents and Guardians of Troy,

              The 2020-21 school year will be described as unprecedented and unique. While this is true because of COVID, it is also true every year at Troy Intermediate. 5th and 6th grade are magical years where our students begin the huge transition from elementary to high school. This four-year process is not only an academic shift but a social-emotional and physical transformation too. For the kids at Troy, there are several unprecedented and unique experiences. This is the first time they have four different teachers for Math, Science, Social Studies, and English Language Arts. We are the first place where all the students from across the district are in the same classrooms. Our school is the home of new friendships, emerging emotions, developmental milestones, and establishing self-identities. We, the advocating adults, must remember that this is all-new for the kids for them. It is their only shot at being a 5th or 6th grader. Let us all continue to work together to make this experience as positive and supportive as possible. If we do so,   our school year will be a memory we are all proud of.

We Want You to Be a Substitute for ALCS


Parent Letter 9/2/2020

Thank you all for a great start to our school year!

    The teachers and I are so glad to begin our classes both online and in-person. One of Troy’s best elements is that we are the first place that the complete classes of 2027 and 2028 are together. This is the start of an eight-year journey ending with graduation from ALHS. These kids will attend dances, sporting events, concerts, and plays together. They will be teammates and competitors with each other. Over the years, they may have the same class or be in the same lunchroom, and they will pass each other in the halls countless times. These mini-moments build into lasting memories that will be chronicled in yearbooks and phone photo galleries. Each student will take a slightly different path, but I hope that they all enjoy the journey. This year and all the unprecedented twists it has given us, in time, become a common thread that we can all reminisce on. The Troy staff is doing our best to make this thread as positive as possible. Your support and trust in our efforts are making this happen. Thank you.

Open House and Google Classroom

    Your child’s teachers are getting to know them, and they want you to get to know them. While a traditional open house is not possible this year, our staff will be posting videos introducing themselves to you. We will be using your student’s Google Classroom as a platform to do this. Use this as an opportunity to have your child show you around their virtual classrooms. If you need to talk to a teacher, please email them and set up a time to speak. Since teachers are moving from classroom to classroom, voicemails may not be returned in a timely manner.

Take-Home Technology

    Several parents completed the technology request forms. Some people were unaware that if you choose to take a Chromebook home, you must bring it back to school fully charged each day. We do not have enough Chromebooks for students to have one at home and one at school. The default option is that students will be assigned a Chromebook and a charging station for in-school use only. Once we have confirmed with your child that they will be taking it home, we will be tagging and assigning them the device that they are responsible for it. Some students may not receive their computer until Tuesday, September 8th. Until they are checked out, they will have access to a Chromebook to use in school. If you completed the form and do NOT want your child to take a computer home, please let your homeroom teacher know as soon as possible.

Remember Daily Home Health Assessments

    Please talk to your child daily about their health and wellness. We must error on the side of caution if a child expresses that they are not feeling well or share that they have symptoms linked with COVID. If a student is sent home, they must stay home until symptoms have gone away or have medical documentation allowing their return. Staying home as a precautionary measure is a safe and wise option.

PTA Membership and Information

We will love it if you join our PTA. 

Thank you again for all your support and for giving us the opportunity to be part of your child’s life.

Andy Peltz, Principal of Troy Intermediate
