PE Clothes Update

Our Taft Logo PE clothes have not arrived yet.  We will send home order forms at a later date with the prices of our uniforms and locks.  Please know that students do not need to purchase Taft Logo PE clothes.  For our PE classes, our coaches ask for grey t-shirts and navy blue mesh shorts as well as comfortable tennis shoes for physical activity. 

School Communication--PowerSchool, Active Email and Current Phone Numbers

We ask that email addresses and phone numbers are updated as soon as possible.  Families may update this information on  PowerSchool or we can help in our front office by telephone at 858 935 2650.   

School Expectations--Dress Code

We ask for your support in maintaining our dress code.  We have reminded and will continue to remind our scholars that shirts that expose the midriff are not allowed.  We have also noticed a few shirts with inappropriate language.  Our scholars have been very good about self-correcting. However, we would like to be more proactive so that our scholars maximize their time at school.  Thank you for your help and understanding. 

Health and Safety Updates--Optional COVID TESTING 

Per the San Diego Unified School District guidelines, masks are still required inside and outside of our school buildings.  Optional COVID testing will be offered at Taft Middle School on Friday mornings.  Two things must occur to have your student test at school.

  1.  You must make your selection to opt-in for testing on PowerSchool
  2. You must create an account with our contracted vendor. (One Time)

Virtual Open House--Wednesday, September 22, 2021

Due to an abundance of caution, our Fall Welcome Back Night will be on Wednesday, September 22, 2021, at 6:00 p.m. on Zoom.  We will use code 858 935 2650. Wednesday, September 22, 2021, is also a minimum day.

We will have a brief Title I meeting at 5:30 p.m. on the same Zoom right before our whole school welcome.  All are invited to join us to learn how Taft utilizes Title I funding.

On behalf of Taft Staff, we thank you for being so supportive of our students.  Together, we can go far.

Thank you and go Eagles!
