We are in this together! At Tipton we are a family first and foremost. From day one we have continued to provide support to our families as well as our community. We did not hesitate to put the physical, emotional, or academic needs at the forefront of our processes. We have continued to do that through meal service, educational support, and planning for the 20-21 school year. Read updates, plans, and join our family journey.

Parents Comments

"I'm a first responder and just now getting a chance to acknowledge how well Tipton has come together and really have been on top of the Covid-19 school shut down. Y'all rocked it and seriously were weeks ahead of most other schools in the area. You guys implemented and applied resources quickly and very effectively. In a time where things caught all of us off guard you all need to be recognized. I wish I could have sent this to you much sooner, but it's been a very busy and stressful past couple of months and I just couldn't get the time. Thank you for all that you and your staff have been doing in these hard times!" ~ Tipton Parent
