Parent Information

  • We like to welcome your child to Thomas Elementary School! In order to keep parents more informed about happenings within the school, we hope you use this page as a resource.  We are also available by phone or email for your convenience.  Please feel free to contact us.  We're here to help!

Reporting School Absences

  • If your child is sick or absent from Thomas, please call the school at 457-6226 and then push 2 to report an absence. It's important to call each day your child is absent.


    If your child will be absent for an unexpected emergency (i.e. accident or death in the family), please leave that information in your message on the absenttee line.  We will pass the message on to the teachers so your child is not penalized for unexcused absences.

Reporting Attendance

  • District 95 has implemented an automated system to notify parents/guardians when a child is absent or when the school will be closed due to weather. Please be sure Thomas School has a current, working phone number to contact your family. The Automated system will call any student who is absent. If you have already called in to excuse your child, please disregard the call. If you believe you have received the call in error, please contact us.


    School begins at 8:20 AM

    The tardy bell at 8:25 AM


    If you believe attedance data is incorrect, please report it to the contact number listed.  If you believe a grade is missing or incorrect, please contact your child's teacher.
