Textbook rental may be collected on July 24th at our Ice Cream Social and anytime after the first day of school. Please remember that all textbook rental fees are due within the first two weeks of school unless your family is applying for textbook rental assitance/free-reduced lunch or you are planning on paying with a payment plan that is turned into Mrs. Gerbofsky, in our front office. This payment plan form will be included in the 1st day back packet.

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:
- Date of phone call
- Name of parents/ guardians
- Name of student
- Reason for absence
- 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.

Spring 2016 ISTEP +
Dear Parent or Guardian
Your student’s Spring 2016 ISTEP+ results are now available for you to review through the ISTEP+ Parent Portal. Through the Parent Portal, you will be able to view preliminary results, including your student’s current score and performance level (Pass+, Pass, or Did Not Pass) and written responses to ISTEP+ Part 1 questions for each subject area of your student’s test. After reviewing this information, you may also request that your student’s response to one or more questions from ISTEP+ Part 1 be rescored.
The ISTEP+ Parent Portal can be accessed through August 12, 2016 at https://results.pearsonaccessnext.com/ using a standard web browser.
Please note the following:
- Claim Codes* are case sensitive. Enter the characters exactly as they are shown.
- *See Important Note below regarding your child’s Claim Code.
- Detailed instructions for using the ISTEP+ Parent Portal will be available on the login page.
- If the performance level for a test is shown as Undetermined, your student’s Part 1 and/or Part 2 test for that subject area may have been incomplete, not taken, missing, or not matched due to an incorrect name, date of birth, or Student Testing Number (STN). In this case, written responses may or may not be available to view.
- Images taken from braille, large print, or loose-leaf computer-generated documents may show responses to multiple questions. In these cases, only the parts related to each question were used in scoring.
- Copies of Part 1 questions, scoring rubrics, and sample student papers will be available beginning June 30 on the IDOE web site at: www.doe.in.gov/assessment/istep-grades-3-8. Please review these materials carefully before deciding whether you want to request a rescore for any question.
If a score is shown as Undetermined (UND) and you have reason to believe your student did complete both parts of his or her test, or you have questions about the responses shown for your student, please contact us. Inquiries from schools will be given priority, so we will contact the IDOE and Pearson on your behalf to obtain a response that we can share with you directly.
You may access your child’s CLAIM CODE through Infinite Campus. Each child’s code is specific to him/her. If you have more than one child who took the Spring 2016 ISTEP+, each child will have a different code.
