       Picture Retakes - September 25th

BreakDown St. Louis

We will be continuing our partnership with BreakDown St.Louis' OffStage program during this school year. OffStage is a monthly follow up program that dives deeper into teen topics by facilitating interactive preventative health education activities.  Students are given an opportunity to come together in a safe environment and discuss the struggles they are currently facing. While navigating the tough issues teens face on a daily basis, the OffStage program challenges students to build healthy relationships, set boundaries, build character and acquire leadership skills.

This proactive opportunity is completely voluntary for students. The topics covered this school year are suicide prevention, the dangers of vaping, social media versus actual connections, alcohol abuse,physical/emotional relationships and finding purpose & passion.

We believe by taking a proactive approach our students will be better informed to make some of the life choices every teen faces before issues arise and that they will be better for it in the long run. By providing this voluntary opportunity we feel our students will know who they can go to and how to get help if they need it

Please contact us if you have any questions, concerns or do not wish your child to participate.




The Library Media Center is OPEN for student use in the mornings from 6:45-7:30am, during lunch, and after school until 3:30. Students may get a pass for Academic Lab in the morning from Mrs. Venneman or Mrs. Hoover in the library.

Nurse Notes

Reminder to All Junior Parents

If your student is in the 11th grade, they are required to have a 2nd dose of Meningococcal before they can begin the 2019-2020 school year.
 A copy of the immunization paperwork from your doctor must be tuned in to Nurse Hobbs.
There will be several reminder emails sent throughout the school year.  If you have already received this immunization please disregard those emails.


Prescription Medication

Parents please be aware that if a student absolutely needs to take medication at school they will need doctor orders for the medication.  The orders must be for the student, signed by the doctor and by the parent. Medication must be in the original medication bottle. Parents will need to bring the medication to school & deliver it to Nurse Hobbs.  Medication isn't to be sent with the student or left in the office. Please call ahead to schedule a time to
drop off medication with our Nurse.

Standing Orders & Health Services

The Lincoln County R-III School District has worked with Dr. James Bockhorst to establish medical standing orders to service our students more efficiently.  Parents that sign this permission form are giving our school nurse and health service professionals authority to administer
medication as stated on our
Standing Order Form


Did You Know???

Give Respect, Get Respect, co-sponsored by Bodine and the Diversity Awareness Partnership, is a 5 day anti-bias training.   "This program gives students, educators . . . tools to become leaders within their schools . . . , identify and feel comfortable speaking about different diversity issues, and help break down the walls that separate people from each other."  

This will be the fourth year we have had a team of students and a teacher participate in the Give Respect, Get Respect training. Each group of students brings their knowledge back to TBHS in the form of activities, trainings and events. The 2017-18 team developed and implemented Hope Week at TBHS along with their associated clubs, NHS, GSA, StuCo, & SaAM Tutors. Hope Week involved a presentation from a holocaust survivor's daughter, wheelchair basketball and fund raiser for the Key (a local homeless resource center).

The 2018-2019 team is being organized at this time; if you would like more information about this program please contact us at 636-462-5148.
