The CyberPatriot field is divided into three divisions – the Open Division for public, private, and home school teams; the All Service Division for JROTC, Civil Air Patrol, and Naval Sea Cadet Corps teams; and the Middle School Division. Based on the results of two preliminary rounds, CyberPatriot X high school teams were categorized within their divisions as Platinum, Gold, or Silver Tier teams, with Platinum Tier teams representing the highest scoring teams.
Led by Coach Becca Levesque, the team of students from TLCA Junior High excelled in the CyberPatriot X State Round held Jan. 19-21, demonstrating teamwork, critical thinking skills, and technical knowledge key to a successful career in cybersecurity. The team’s performance earned it Texas’ 1st Place Award and a spot in the Platinum Tier Semifinal Round held this month.
Dear Parents, Staff, and Students
As we are sure, all of you are aware we are experiencing very high numbers of people in Texas and across the country becoming infected with the flu.
Each year 36,000 people die from the flu and complications associated with the flu. Many more deaths and hospitalizations are predicted and are occurring with the outbreak and spread of influenza this year.
To protect yourself, your students, families, and the general population please:
1. Wash your hands often
2. Cover your mouth and sneeze or cough into your sleeve
3. Wash your hands after blowing your nose
4. Avoid shaking hands
5. Disinfect surfaces often (desks, phones, countertops, door handles, objects that are shared, etc.)
6. Wear a mask over your mouth and nose around sick individuals and at medical facilities examining sick individuals
7. DO NOT go to work, go to school, go out in public places or crowded areas if you have a fever, body aches, vomiting, diarrhea, and/or other symptoms of illness. Flu is a highly contagious viral illness which can be deadly. Please do not be a part of spreading the illness.
We hope these measures will decrease the spread of influenza and other illnesses this year.
