TMJH reminds parents to keep email address on file
Treasure Mountain Junior High is encouraging parents to file their current email addresses with the school. According to the school’s website, tmjh.pcschools.us, parents who haven’t been receiving emails from the district should ensure their email providers are not blocking messages from email@example.com or any other addresses that end in pscshools.us. If that doesn’t solve the problem, parents should then check with the school to see if the correct address is on file.
