 Principal Mahoney  

Welcome to the 2014-15 school year at TES!  
Here are some updates:

Road Closures in the Town of Telluride
For approximately the next 10 weeks, beginning on Tuesday, September 2, Colorado will be closed in various locations between Aspen and Davis.  For the first week, starting on September 2, the Aspen Street intersection will be closed, along with the section between Aspen and Townsend in both directions (Townsend intersection will be open during this time).  Please plan accordingly and follow displayed detour signs around town for the next 10 weeks.  The police will be assisting with traffic at Townsend and Columbia during morning drop-off at TES.  More information will be posted as street closure updates become available.
PICTURE DAY! September 11

Pic day

Picture RETAKE Day
Monday, October 20 .

MORNING DROP OFF  ​Please note the following changes beginning Monday, August 25:​

  • Townsend will be one-way traveling north only.

  • Galena will be one-way traveling east only.

  • No parking on Townsend and Galena from 7:30-8:30 am each school day.

We will have school staff stationed on Columbia, Townsend, and Galena.  We request that parents drop students off and trust our staff to help your child(ren) enter the school safely.  

Upon arrival, students will be guided to the book area located inside the northeast entrance to the school.  This area will be supervised until the first bell rings at 8:05, signaling the time for students to report to their classrooms.  The second bell is at 8:10, and all students are expected to begin their school day at that time.  

Students not in their classrooms by 8:10 will be considered tardy and must report to the office for a tardy slip.  We ask that if/when you bring your child(ren) to school, you make every effort to have him/her arrive on time.  When students are tardy, it is disruptive to the classroom learning environment.  It is also upsetting to the tardy student to have to wait in line for a pass and then enter the room later than his/her classmates.  Please respect the school day by arriving on time or a little early.


TES outside doors will lock at 8:30 and remain locked during school hours.  All visitors to the building must enter through the front door only and report to the TES Office for a Visitor's Badge.  


All TES visitors, including parents and weekly volunteers, must report to the TES Office for a "Visitor's Badge" immediately upon entering the building.  We ask that visitors let us know ahead if they plan to have lunch with their child.  Appointments should be made ahead with teachers and administration for conferencing.  

Let’s work together to make this the best year ever at TES!

SophiaTelluride Schools Prepare for 14-15 Early Release Tuesdays

With new curriculum, new state learning standards, and the goal to increase the rigor to ensure that all students are appropriately challenged, the Telluride School District will pilot a 1-year early release for all students during the upcoming school year in order to provide time for teachers from across grade levels to work together.  Except during the weeks of December 15 through February 2 (Ski PE Weeks), students will be dismissed on Tuesday at 1:50pm from TES and 1:55pm from TIS and TMHS.  Buses will run their routes shortly after school is out.  Both the school and the area non-profits are finalizing plans for opportunities for students on these days AhHaa, Telluride Academy, Pinhead and others met to work on designing various priced programs for students on these Tuesday.  In addition, the school will offer a $5 afterschool activity to replace the former PEP program.  Punchcards will be available for purchase in the fall for the School Program.  Please check your schools back to school letter for more information.  These letters will be mailed in early August. In addition, area non-profit activities will be posted on the website through the "Green Folders" icon.

Parent Portal for 2014-2015 School Year
If you created a log in for the Infinite Campus Parent Portal last year, nothing has changed. The direct link is under the Parents and Students link above.

If you have never used the Parent Portal to view your students' attendance and grades, contact Tava or your building admin assistant for instructions.

You do not need a login for our new website; teacher pages with assignments and class information are open to view. Look under Staff Directory under the appropriate school to find your child's teacher.

TES has adopted four school-wide rules for the year:

1. Be Respectful

2. Be Honest

3. Be Safe

4. Believe in Yourself

 Along with these 4 B's, we have adopted a new mascot:  the Miner Bee!
