02: Day One!

August 8, 2018


Dear Thrasher Families,

We had a wonderful first day back with your children! Thank you for entrusting them to us.

Car Line

You all did a great job with the car line today, and it’ll get even better.

·       All children should enter and exit vehicles through the passenger side of the vehicle.

·       As much as possible, remain in the car while your child enters/exits vehicle. (Do not get out to help children with doors unless there is a dire need.) The sooner the children become independent with this, the sooner the car line will move smooth-as-butter.


Please remember that the bus routes on paper rarely match the bus routes in reality. During the first three weeks of school, buses can run late or early depending on how many people ride and all kinds of variables. Usually by the Labor Day the buses are settled in their routes. It is a good idea to be at the bus stops early for the month of August.

Lunch Visits

We ask that you refrain from joining your children at lunch for the first two weeks of school unless you are volunteering to help in the cafeteria.

Morning Arrival

We had a smooth morning today. Thank you to all the parents who helped carry school supply boxes down the hallways. Starting tomorrow:

·       Please drop children off in the car line or the front of the school.

·       We aim to have children in class and ready to learn by 8:05. The faster we establish the routine, the better.

·       Let us know how we can support you if needed.

Thank You

Thank you for allowing us the privilege of working with you and your children!
