(If you ordered supplies online this year your orders will be here ready for you at TC!)  Your teachers will be here to greet you and they will also provide a link to their classroom expectations and procedures for you to review at your leisure and as needed throughout the year.  There will NOT be a separate Back to School night, but our wonderful teachers are ALWAYS open to communication, conferences, meetings, etc! J  We are confident though that the online presentations will answer your questions about the basic procedures and philosophies of the classroom and that you will find it convenient to access this information from Day 1 of the school year!

Student Drop-off/Pick-up

For the safety of our students, it is important that all persons picking up or dropping off students use the proper procedures. Students may not be dropped off before 8:40 a.m. With security procedures, the front door will not be unlocked until 8:40 a.m. and students should not be allowed out of an automobile until that time.  We also understand that the drop off line gets long in the morning, but please be patient and take the time necessary to make it safe for all our students, parents, and staff. When dropping off students before and after school, please use the main entrance area only. Make sure that you follow the drive through and drop off lanes. Also, make sure that students get out on the curb or left-side of the car. There is no passing in the drop off lane.  Your patience is always appreciated!

Appointments/Early Dismissals * New Procedures

On the day of your student's appointment, it is very important that you have your student bring a note to their teacher or the office before school begins for the day.   **Prior notification completely eliminates a classroom disruption and helps to assure that your student will be waiting in the office and ready to go when you come to sign them out.  We understand that last minute things come up, but we do ask that you keep walk-up requests or last minute phone calls to a minimum. If you are picking up your child for an early dismissal THEY MUST BE PICKED UP BY 3:15 PM ON A NORMAL DISMISSAL DAY AND 2:50PM ON A PLC/WEDNESDAY. Request for early pickups by parents for appointments, etc. will be made through the front office and MUST be in writing also. These new policies will help ensure a safe dismissal for all students.  The note should include the  students name, teacher name, your name and date.   When picking up your child for appointments, please go directly to the Main Office to sign them out.  When a student returns from a mid-day appointment, the student should sign back in at the Main Office and turn in his/her doctor's note if they have one.

Absences During the School Year

Students should be fever-free without the use of fever-reducing medication (i.e. Tylenol) for 24 hours before returning to school. If your child has an illness associated with vomiting and/or diarrhea, they should not return to school until 24 hours after the last episode. This helps prevent further spread of viruses and bacteria, and to promote a healthier environment for all. Our goal at Thompson Crossing is to keep kids healthy and in school. It is important for all students to adhere to our illness guidelines in order to reach this goal.

Attendance is extremely important.  If your child is not in our classrooms, they cannot learn and be exposed to the same content as their teacher presents.  However, everyone becomes ill at various times and we understand!  If your child is going to be absent, please call our attendance line at 860-4678 by 9:15 AM.  Our data clerk will check the line daily to record absences.  Follow the steps below:

  1. Date of phone call
  2. Name of parents/ guardians
  3. Name of student
  4. Reason for absence
  5. Number of days for the absence 

If you need to leave a personal message for your child’s teacher and/or request homework, please call the teacher’s voice mail number. 

Car Rider Tags *New* and Transportation Change Procedures

****New tags and procedures this year for car riders**** All students that are car riders at least 1 day per week will be given a NEW parent pick up tag that has a designated number per family. This tag must hang from rearview mirror and be visible to the car duty staff at all times.(tags may be picked up during the Ice Cream Social)  ALL transportation changes MUST BE MADE BY SENDING A NOTE INTO THE FRONT OFFICE TO PROCESS THE REQUEST  this includes normal bus rider to car or YMCA, or normal car rider to bus, etc.


Bus routes may be available after July 18th. Please check the FTCSC website under resources – bus routes. Please remember that an alternate pickup/drop off form must be on file and APPROVED by transportation prior to school starting, if you are planning on your student being dropped off or picked off at an alternate location the first date. See the website for this form and it must be turned into transportation, not Thompson Crossing.

Attention parents and guardians of TC students. We value our student safety, as all FTCSC schools do, and ask that you visit the following link when attending a large event at our school. An example of a large event would be attending a room party as a room parent or attending a grade level program. You may also use this preregistration check-in feature anytime you are visiting your student for lunch or attending a meeting with a teacher. This check-in feature allows us to know who is planning on being on our campus and is free to those who use it. THIS IS NOT THE SAME LINK AS THE SAFEVISITOR VOLUNTEER BACKGROUND CHECK and may be used together. It also helps alleviate the long check in line at large events as we do require each visitor's ID to be scanned into our safevisitor system. Thank you for helping us keep our students safe.
