Important announcement regarding student parking at TAHS 

Since ground was broken for our construction project, we have lost multiple rows of parking spots traditionally allocated to our staff and students.  As a result, we currently do not have enough parking spots for staff and all students that may wish to drive.  After completing our enrollment for parking permits for our seniors and juniors, we have sold all of the available parking permits, meaning we have allotted all of the available parking spots for students for the current school year.  If additioinal parking spaces become available, we will open our window for potential student drivers to apply and will allocate the spaces by a lottery system.  


Parking lots will be getting checked for permits.  Students found to be driving without permission will have the following consequences:


1st offense - Warning and parental contact

2nd offense - Detention (3 hours) assigned and parent contacted.  Parent also informed the next offense will result in the vehicle being towed.

3rd offense - Vehicle is towed

We thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding during this construction time. Should additional spots become available after we have filled our current spots, an all call will be made giving instructions at that point. 


  Thank you (1)

TAHS Principal Eric Diroff and Assistant Principal Stacey Mochty accept a check from Lindsay Miller from Dean Arbour Ford for $1,500.  The money was raised through the Drive 4 UR School program. The Drive 4 UR School program is a fun, engaging way to help schools raise money to support their students. Dean Arbour Ford partnered with TAHS Student Senate and the Friends of Rachel group, to conduct a test-drive fundraising event. For every valid test-drive completed, Ford Motor Company donated $20 to the participating high school.  Funds from this event will go towards student initiatives/programs at the high school.
