THS sets important dates

By Michael Butler

One of the most anticipated events in Tallassee High School history is next week. The new $21 million high school will welcome visitors for a ribbon cutting on Wednesday, Aug. 2 at 10 a.m.

Teachers return on Aug. 1 with students to follow on Aug. 8. And they will all be in the new high school.

THS has released information regarding parking on campus. Permits will go on sale on July 24 and 25 for senior students and July 26 and 27 for juniors. An annual parking permit is $40. Applications will be accepted based on availability.

All debts to the school must be paid in full before permits will be issued. Those fees include; damaged iPads and music departments balances. A parent and student signature are required on the application and drug policy form. A copy of the student's driver's license is also required.

"Parents and students need to understand that parking on campus is a privilege and the right to do so may be taken away at the discretion of the principal at any time," the school noted in the release.

Dates for football ticket sales have also been given. Those who held reserved passes last year will be able to repurchase those seats from Aug. 1-11. On Aug. 14, the remaining seats will go on sale to the public. Reserved packages are $90 each and exclude post-season games.

Tallassee has five regular season home games beginning with Booker T. Washington on Sept. 1.
