Hello and welcome to our school’s homepage. I hope that you view this website as a valuable tool in learning more about our school and the ways in which we strive to meet our students' needs. Be on the lookout for updates and modifications as the district as a whole continues its efforts in seeing that this is a dynamic site.
Please be sure to also spend time navigating the section that is specific to the development and planning for the implementation of the recalibrated Code of Character, Conduct and Support. You can find materials related to the Code by clicking on the district homepage, and by following the links under "Our District" and "Code of Conduct" or by clicking below:
This Code was developed in partnership with key stakeholders including parents, teachers, district and school administrators, union representatives, external service providers and community leaders. Implementation of the recalibrated Code began in 2018-2019 and will be a continued focus in the 2019-2020 school year. Specifically, we will look to better match restorative actions with school sanctions, as well as seek to improve upon culturally responsive practices.
Regular, productive and meaningful communication between all school stakeholders is an integral component of our success. Please feel free to reach out to me either by phone, email or by stepping into the office so that we can discuss the many ways in which we can work to support our children.

We, the superintendents of Monroe County school districts, stand together against racism. We acknowledge that discrimination exists in all of our communities. We see it in the bias that exists within our districts. We see it in the trauma that hatred and oppression inflict on our students and families. We see it in the educational inequities that continue to perpetuate glaring disparities in student outcomes. We know that the fight against racism, oppression and hate cannot fall solely on families of color or within the confines of only some school districts. We all must lead this transformation together.
The Mental Health team members at T. J. Connor are available to provide you with support. Please do not hesitate to contact us if your child or your family needs our assistance. We can provide you with resources, strategies for helping your child, and even virtual counseling sessions for students. The best way to contact us i
