All students and families are invited to attend our Wolf Pack Rally! Parents and students are invited to meet staff, participate in sports/games, buy P.E. uniforms, join the PTSA, and update their Family File information. The cost of P.E. uniforms is $6.00 for shirts and $8.00 for shorts. This is a great opportunity for TVMS families to meet and greet each other.



Sixth graders will receive their schedules and lockers during the Sixth Grade Student Orientation on Thursday, August 31st, between 2:00 and 3:00 p.m.

All returning TVMS students will receive their schedules on the first day of school during Den homeroom on September 5th. We will have homeroom lists posted for reference. We will also have staff stationed at entry doors and in hallways to assist students. All students will report to their Den homeroom on the first day of school and, as part of the opening day lesson, schedules and TVMS procedures will be reviewed. Doors open for students at

8:00 a.m., and the student day ends at 2:55 p.m.


You may find your student’s bus number, morning stop location and time, and afternoon stop location by entering your street address in the School and Bus Locator section of the HCPSS website here. As you prepare for a great start to school, keep in mind that it may take a week or two for the arrival times to be completely accurate due to the variety of the bus routes. For this reason, we recommend that students arrive 15 minutes prior to the published, scheduled pick-up time.
