Thomas School Daily Schedule

Arrival Procedures

  • Children should not arrive at school before 7:30 a.m.  Parents who drive their children to school should drop them off at the cafeteria door.

Dismissal Procedures

  • All transportation changes need to be called into the office by 1:00 PM.  When picking up your child, do not get out of your vehicles while in line. Exiting your car causes undue delays.


    Parents who are picking up students prior to dismissal time will need to park in the south lot and go to the main office to sign students out for the day. This is the same procedure for parents not in the vehicle student pick up line.


    Walkers will be escorted across the cross walk, where parents are encouraged to meet them.  Buses will be loaded in front of the school; vehicles should not enter this area.  Family members and friends who are authorized to pick up your child, will need to follow the same procedures mentioned above.


    We need your help to keep our Thomas Tigers safe. Thank you for your continued support in making Thomas Elementary a safe and productive environment for all.
