PTO NEWS... Thank you PTO for all you do. PTO meets the first Tuesday or each month.




Effective February 1st, 2016, our campus will be closed after 7:30 am. Students who arrive after 7:30 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. A staff member will assist pre-K and K students to class if necessary. 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.

   ALL visitors who come on campus after 7:30 am must present valid identification and be scanned into our Raptor system in the front office. This badge must be visible the entire time one is on campus.

For parents already on campus before 7:30 am, they will not be required at this point to be scanned through the front office, but it is expected that they exit the classroom promptly at 7:30 so our instructional day can begin.

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.

Thank you for helping us make Tommy Smith an amazing and SAFE place to learn.
