Message for students using school issued iPads as of February 18 -- Instructional Technology personnel have been working to resolve the problem keeping our students from logging in to Canvas and are hoping this latest issue has been repaired. Please have your student reboot/restart the iPad when convenient and log into the Canvas account. If there are continued problems after restarting the device today, please contact your child's teacher or site principal via email. Include the student's first and last name/grade and a telephone number where you can be reached. Our teachers will then forward this student information to our IT department so that further action can be taken. Thank you for your help and patience with this process.
Distance learning will continue for Tecumseh Public Schools on Friday, February 19. Subfreezing temperatures have prevented many secondary roads from thawing enough to safely run our bus routes as well as provide safe passage for our parents and students who would be driving children to school. Following the warmer weather forecast for this weekend and necessary for road clearing, we hope to return to in-person learning next week. Assignments and communication from teachers will be posted to the Canvas learning platform.
Tecumseh Public Schools will remain on distance learning for Thursday, February 18. Students in all grades should be logging into the Canvas learning platform each day to receive credit for attendance. We realize however, that unexpected power outages across the district could make this difficult for some families and we understand. Please make every attempt to keep communication up to date with your child's teachers as you are able.
Parents -- If your child is using an iPad school issued device and you are having difficulty logging in at this time and receiving an "error message" from the device, we have been made aware of the problem. The IT department is currently working on a solution and we will update you as this occurs. This is a problem only related to our iPads. Thank you for your patience.

This is a school holiday to observe Presidents Day so check in on the Canvas learning platform will NOT be required of any students. However, students are strongly encouraged to stay current in all class assignments while we are on this break from in person learning. This is also a great time for children to do some extra READING! Parents, make sure you are monitoring your child's academic progress and email teachers if you have questions about assignments or grades. Temperatures and wind chills are extremely dangerous so stay warm and safe. Future weather-related school closings will be announced as the situation unfolds.
