TLC Charter Chatter
News, Information, and Updates for Primary, Discovery, and Millennium Charter Schools
A Message from our CEO, Carolyn Woods
Happy New Year, and welcome back! As you are well aware, we are still challenged with the presence of COVID-19 in our lives. We are monitoring the situation very carefully and have been in contact with the county office of education. We received our supply of iHealth COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Tests for students on Tuesday, January 4th, and were able to quickly distribute them to our entire student body the following day. There is no requirement to test or to document negative test results, however, we do ask that if your child tests positive after being on campus, please alert the front office. We are still obligated to notify close contacts of any exposure.
We will continue to keep you informed of any protocol or policy change. Our goal is to keep our students safe and in school!
Thank you for your cooperation!

AERIES Emergency Info Needed.
We still have several families who have not completed an updated emergency contact form. This information is very important and is used to contact parents if there is an emergency. If you have not completed this form, please do so and return it to our front office ASAP

**Attention All Parents**
Below you will find a link to our electronic parent website (AERIES). This database contains critical information about each DCS student and each student’s emergency contact information. This portion MUST BE FILLED OUT BY YOU. All data will be used to contact you in the event of an emergency. It is very important that you take the time to ensure we have all necessary information.
Use the following link https://tracylearningcenter.aeries.net/student and login in with the email and password you created when registering your student at the beginning of the school year. From there, navigate to the DATA CONFIRMATION PROCESS link. Once you enter the information, THE LAST STEP IS TO PRINT THE EMERGENCY CARD and turn it into the front office or to your child’s teacher.
If you believe you have already completed this process OR you need help completing this process please call 209-290-0511. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

This is an extremely valuable workshop for students who will be taking their first college class this Spring, and any other students who would like a refresher.
You MUST sign up to attend so we know how many students to expect.

LUNCH: Ordering lunch is slightly different this year. All students should have a lunch account to pay for lunches. To register, go to https://www.mymealtime.com/ and create an account. You must choose/type in your specific school (Millennium High School) and you will need your student school I.D. number. If you have any difficulties creating an account online, money can still be added to your account by either cash, check, or debit card. You can drop off payment in the lunch dropbox that is located in the main office. We are still in the process of adding new students to our mealtime system and hope to have it completed next week.
Lunch is ordered the day before it is delivered to class. All students should order their lunch during 4th period/HUB time. The Google Classroom code is SEUNSOU. Applications for Free & Reduced meals must be completed and turned in every year. You can apply on the school’s website.
