KINDERGARTEN PARENTS - QUESTIONS ABOUT "IS MY CHILD READY FOR KINDERGARTEN?" FROM YOUR KINDERGARTEN TEACHERS
BOOK BATTLE LIST 2020-2021
BUS LOOP: We are VERY concerned about the safety of our students aways...but we are having recurring problems in the west bus zone. A REMINDER THAT THE BUS LOOP ON THE WEST SIDE OF THE BUILDING IS FOR BUSES ONLY. THIS IS NOT A PICKUP AREA. PLEASE DO NOT DIRECT YOU STUDENT TO RUN ACROSS THE BUS AREA TO ACCESS THEIR CARS. THE BUSES ARE TALL AND ABILITY TO SEE A SMALL CHILD WHO MIGHT BE RUNNING NEXT TO THE BUS IS VERY HARD.
CLOSING SCHOOLS FOR INCLEMENT WEATHER
The Davis School District reminds parents about procedures the district will use when it considers closing schools for inclement weather. The decision to close schools actually occurs in the early-morning hours when district snow plow drivers are out attempting to clear parking lots before students arrive at school. When plow drivers think conditions are bad, they make calls to the district's maintenance director, transportation director and facilities administrator, who then contact an assistant superintendent and superintendent of schools.
That group then reviews road and weather reports provided by the local media, law enforcement and state highway representatives, and take into account student and employee safety, busing and security. If the superintendent decides to close schools, that decision will be made as early as possible and before school buses hit the roadways.
In the event of a closure, the district will post information on Twitter and Facebook. Parents and guardians will also be notified through a call out and email. Parents who opted in to receive text messages will also receive a text. Additionally, the information will posted to all school webpages. Area radio and TV stations will be notified to spread the word that schools are closed. The stations will only be notified when schools close. They will not be contacted when schools remain open.
The Davis School District recognizes that schools are a public service. Many rely on schools remaining open and serving as a safe haven for children. The district recognizes that many students may be left home without adult supervision as some parents do not have the luxury of choosing to stay home. Closures, due to snow, are rare.
If school closes because of weather, the school day, by state law, must be made up. Parents are also reminded that they may keep their student at home anytime they feel it is unsafe for their student to travel to school. Arrangements will then need to be made with the teacher for makeup work.

Tolman Elementary is divided into four different "houses". These four groups meet together once a month to have different activities.
The “Houses” are:
1. Black – Altruismo: unselfish regard for or devotion to the welfare of others
2. Red – Amistade: Spanish, meaning friendship
3. Green – Isibindi: Zulu, it’s first meaning is ‘courage’ or ‘boldness’
4. Blue – Reveur: French, meaning dreamer
We are having “House” activities once a month. These activities are fun and teach a social skill. Ask your child about their “House” and the fun activities.
Please encourage your students to wear their "house shirt" on the Second Friday of each month! If they don't have a "house shirt", they can wear their "house" color.
