A letter from the Triad Link Crew: 


We are very excited that your child will be attending Triad High School and we look forward to meeting your student on Kickoff Day. Our school is participating in the nationwide Link Crew Program. This organization’s sole purpose is to help freshmen feel more comfortable as well as help them achieve success in their first year of high school. The Link Crew freshman orientation and transition program is designed to both welcome and support freshmen by assigning them a junior or senior Link Leader as a mentor during this first year. This Link Leader is a responsible older student who was hand selected from a large pool of applicants and has met the qualifications of being a good role model and a positive leader on our campus. 

Following is some information to let you know what you and your student can expect in advance of their first day of school. 1. Freshman Kickoff Day has been scheduled from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., August 11, 2015 in the large gym at Triad High School. 2. A few days before orientation your student will receive a phone call from her or his Link Crew Leader personally inviting your student to orientation day and giving the details of where to be and what time; 3. Your student is encouraged NOT to bring backpacks, purses or other like items as the day is quite active; 4. Because the day is active, please make sure that your student wears comfortable clothing that does not restrict movement. 5. Bus transportation will be provided, please check the Triad website on or after August 1 st for specific pickup details. This is a STUDENT ONLY function, so we encourage you to let your child attend on her or his own.

We look forward to meeting you and your student on orientation day!
