New Schedules for 6th Grade

Dear Parent/Guardian:

We are off to a wonderful start for the 2020 – 2021 school year. Our first five weeks have been full of excitement, anticipation, and changes.

As we have reviewed information and feedback from students, parents, and teachers, the administration of Tanglewood Middle School has determined that making a change to the 6th grade schedule is in the best interest of our students.

As a result, your students will have a schedule change starting Monday, September 28, 2020. This schedule change will allow for our 6th grade teachers to focus on one academic area instead of two. This will allow teachers to be more available for our students as they transition to middle school.

Parents and guardians, we thank you for your patience as we prepare our students for success and academic growth.


Dr. Graysen Walles, Principal

Staffed by a pediatrician and a pediatric nurse practitioner, the Prisma Health-Bradshaw Institute School-based Health Center is a medical clinic within your child's school that offers health care services. Due to the current attendance plan of one in person school day per week, our health care providers are currently available through virtual visits.

On days that students are physically in school, the school nurse will have telehealth equipment that allows us to talk to and examine students virtually- similar to facetime. On days students are elearning at home, they can access us by doing a virtual visit through MyChart. Students’ chrome books are allowed to access Prisma Health MyChart for virtual visits.

We can’t test for COVID-19, but students can be evaluated to see if they need testing. If they need testing, we can order it and it can be done at Prisma Health’s drive thru testing site.

For students to be seen by our team, parents will need to fill-out consent paperwork. The packet is available at your school, or you can print your own from the link on your school website. Once the paperwork is turned in, the student will be able to see us anytime this school year.

For more information- ask your school nurse, visit www.ghschildrens.org/community-pediatrics.php or contact Melinda Lavallee-Turner, Community Pediatrics program coordinator at the Bradshaw Institute for Community Child Health & Advocacy, at. Call us at 864-454-2341 to schedule a virtual visit in MyChart!


¡El acceso a la atención médica está disponible para los estudiantes, inscritos como virtuales o no virtuales!

El Centro de Salud Escolar del Instituto Bradshaw de Prisma Health, que cuenta con un pediatra y una enfermera pediátrica, es una clínica médica dentro de la escuela de su hijo que ofrece servicios de atención médica. Debido al plan actual de asistencia de un día escolar en persona por semana, actualmente nuestros proveedores de atención médica están disponibles a través de visitas virtuales.

En los días en que los estudiantes están físicamente en la escuela, la enfermera de la escuela tendrá un equipo de telesalud que nos permite hablar y examinar a los estudiantes virtualmente, de manera similar a FaceTime. En los días en que los estudiantes están aprendiendo en casa, pueden tener acceso a nosotros haciendo una visita virtual a través de MyChart. Los libros Chrome de los estudiantes permiten acceder a MyChart de Prisma Health para hacer visitas virtuales.

No podemos hacer pruebas para COVID-19, pero se puede evaluar a los estudiantes para ver si necesitan pruebas. Si necesitan pruebas, podemos ordenarlas y se pueden hacer desde el auto en el sitio de pruebas de Prisma Health.

Para que nuestro equipo atienda a los estudiantes, los padres tendrán que llenar los formularios de consentimiento. El paquete está disponible en su escuela, o puede imprimir el suyo propio desde el enlace en el sitio web de su escuela. Una vez que se entreguen los papeles, el estudiante podrá vernos en cualquier momento de este año escolar.

Para obtener más información, pregúntele a la enfermera de su escuela, visite www.ghschildrens.org/community-pediatrics.php o póngase en contacto con Melinda Lavallee-Turner, coordinadora del programa de Pediatría Comunitaria del Instituto Bradshaw para la promoción de la salud infantil en la comunidad ¡Llámenos al 864-454-2341 para programar una visita virtual a través de MyChart!
