April 2, 2020 Update - Additional Assignment Delivery Information

Due to the governor’s most recent order to keep schools closed through May 1st, we will continue meal pick-ups next Monday, April 6th from 10:30-12:30 at Margaretta Elementary at the parent pick-up loop off of Maple Ave.  We will once again provide 5 days worth of meals. There is no need to sign up. Meal pick-up will continue through the scheduled Spring Break as well.

If students are in need of a device, please call (419) 504-1606 and leave a message. The device can be picked up Monday at the next meal pickup.

New weekly assignments will be posted ONLINE beginning next Monday.  Students and parents should NOT come pick up or drop off assignments. It is important all assignments are completed, especially for athletic eligibility purposes.  To assist students and families in staying organized and to eliminate some stress, the following will be the class schedule students should follow:

Mondays and Wednesdays - Math and science
Tuesdays and Thursdays - English, social studies, and electives
Fridays - Review, catch up on assignments or extra support sessions if needed.

There will be no work assigned during spring break from April 10-April 17.

Townsend Community School

Townsend Community School Logo Townsend Community School (TCS) is a conversion community school established in 2011 and sponsored by the Margaretta Local School District. The credit-recovery school accomodates at-risk students in grades 9-12, and also offers adults education and college credit plus opportunities. It has a safe and innovative learning environment in a modern facility that allows each student to learn at their own pace.

As the sponsor of Townsend Community School, the Margaretta Local School District provides resources to support TCS. Our relationship with TCS is more like a partnership for an alternative educational delivery system to improve student achievement. Our commitment is to offer "managed growth" to meet the needs to each student by not trading enrollment and funding for individual student success.
