School Announcements



Monday, August 22nd, we would like our PANTHERS to demonstrate their INDEPENDENCE!

At 7:05 am beginning on August 22nd, the gates to the front of the school will be locked after buses have arrived.  Students who arrive after that time will enter through the door on the left side of the gate.  Parents who wish to walk their child to their morning area must present valid identification, be scanned into our Raptor system in the front office, and receive a visitor’s badge each morning before coming on campus.

Our campus will be closed after 7:25 am. Students who arrive after 7:25 am will no longer be walked to class by their parent or guardian. Students will check in at the front office and be sent to class.  ALL visitors who come on campus after 7:30 am must report to the front office to receive a visitor’s badge that must be visible the entire time one is on campus.

If a parent wishes to visit a classroom, it must be prearranged with the teacher, and that parent/guardian must have a volunteer form on file to volunteer in the classroom. Please let our front office staff know that you have an arrangement with the teacher, and they will call the teacher to verify and let them know you are coming to their classroom.

It is expected that parents exit the campus promptly at 7:30 so our instructional day can begin.   We ask that you exit the school through the front office at all times and not through the hallways.

If you wish to eat lunch with your child, you may do so by continuing to check into the front office. However, unless previously arranged by the teacher, you may only be on campus during your child’s lunch time.  Please enjoy your lunch with your child in the designated areas. Please sign out in the front office when you leave.  Thanks for your attention to our visitation policy as we make Tommy Smith a safe campus.

Because of the staggered start, Kindergarten independence day will be on Tuesday, August 23rd.
