The option you choose for your child will remain the method of instruction for the 3rd Six Weeks, once On Campus Face-to-Face instruction begins.

Whippet News

Taft Junior High has welcomed back over HALF of our student population for Face to Face Learning! We are excited to see more Whippet students in the hallways and working inside the classroom. Our teachers have done an amazing job balancing the duties of  continuing to teach our Virtual Learners and teaching those in the classroom.  Thank you parents for all you do in helping to make this transition a success!  Keeping ONE safe, keeps us ALL safe. 
If your child is not feeling well, please call the front office to inform us. We ask that you take extra precautions if your child is ill.  No worries, your child will still be able to participate in classes via Virtual Learning while at home.  Stay safe, Whippets!
Our student athletes continue to work hard not only in the classroom but on the football field, volleyball court hitting the pavement for Cross Country as well as band.  We have wrapped up Volleyball season and Football season is almost coming to an end.  As those sports are closing out, we are gearing up for Basketball season! We look forward to seeing our Whippets on the basketball court! Basketball schedules are posted under CALENDARS.
We appreciate all the time and effort our student athletes are doing to ensure grades are maintained so they are able to participate in extra curricular activities. Thank you coaches for working with our students day in and day out. Your hard work does not go unnoticed!
