TO OUR STUDENTS and PARENTS/GUARDIANS,
On behalf of our faculty and staff, we welcome you to THS. We look forward to assisting you in fulfilling your educational goals and becoming a lifelong learner. THS has a history of fine academic and co-curricular accomplishments. We expect you to meet the goals which have been set, to carry on the tradition, and to make THS a better place. We are here to make your years in school as successful, yet educationally challenging as possible.  YOUR GRADUATION IS OUR EXPECTATION!
This handbook has been prepared to explain and clarify the procedures, policies, and regulations at Tullahoma High School. The administration reserves the right to make changes to programs, policies, fees, etc. as necessary and without prior notice.  The handbook is not meant to be all-inclusive of rules and expectations. It is not a substitute for
common sense, honesty, and making good choices.  You are urged to contact us if you have any questions. Thank you for your support as we strive to meet the needs of all our students.

FIFTEEN WORDS THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE:
At Tullahoma High School, we strive to create an environment that is welcoming and supportive.
A smile and a kind word can go a long way in creating that atmosphere. Toward this end, we
encourage staff and students to incorporate "Fifteen Words That Make a Difference" into their
daily practices.
