In an effort to help our families prepare for the 2020-21 academic year, we are providing information here about Tanglewood Middle School's standard procedures and guidelines for in-school education under normal conditions. Changes, ammendments, etc. specifically related to the current Covid-19 pandemic will be made available when Houston ISD decisions are reached and passed down to us at the campus level. OUR PRIORITY IS THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF OUR STUDENTS, FACULTY, STAFF, FAMILIES, AND COMMUNITY. We appreciate your patience and understanding as Houston ISD works with the Texas Education Agency (TEA), the government of the State of Texas, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and other institutions to create a comprehensive return-to-school plan.

  • REVISED PE Uniform Policy

    Posted by Cleo Gribbins on 10/14/2020 9:00:00 AM


    We have revised our PE uniform policy to allow for adding bottoms under the PE shorts. Remember that the PE uniform MUST be worn all day on the days that face-to-face students have PE class (typically three days per week). There is no dressing out. Please see the official policy wording below. Thank you.


    PE UNIFORMS: PE uniforms are required, and will be available for purchase from the PE teachers or school store. Students are required to wear their PE uniform for the entire day on the days they take their PE class. Students may wear leggings, running pants, or sweatpants under their PE shorts.

  • Update On First Day of School

    Posted by Cleo Gribbins on 8/21/2020 1:00:00 PM

    We wanted to keep you updated on the latest information for the first day of virtual classes. More detailed information will be coming in the next two weeks.


    On September 1, 2 and 3, students and their families MUST come to the school on their designated day and time (see website homepage) to pick up their Chromebook, textbooks, class schedule, etc. THIS IS A REQUIREMENT. You may not send someone else to pick up these supplies. It MUST be the parent/guardian and the student.


    We will publish the bell schedule and instructions for logging into the HUB on our website homepage and announce it via LivingTree for New Families and all of our social media accounts.


    Please don't stress or worry...we got this! We are all going to work together to have a great experience!
