Hello Tolman Families,
Tolman Elementary parent/guardian surveys are now available in your myDSD parent portal. To access these surveys, go to the Davis School District homepage and click on the myDSD logo. Sign in with your username and password. A notice will appear just below your student's name saying that you have surveys available. Click that box, complete the survey, and submit. Repeat for all available surveys. Questions can be directed to Peter Vanderlinden at 801-402-5289. We value your feedback! Please complete your surveys by March 5, 2021.
Tolman Spirit Days:
Tolman Elementary Spirit Days this school year are every Thursday. Thursdays are great days to wear Tolman t-shirts and show school spirit.
The school district’s Transition Fair will be held for all students with disabilities in grades 5-12 on March 4th. This is a free event for Davis School District students and families. For more information, click here.
End of Year Testing:
As we finish up third term, we will begin our end-of-year state assessments when we come back from Spring Break. This is a reminder that state testing opt-out forms are annual. If needed, updated forms for this are available in the front office.
COVID-19 School Updates and Guidelines:
One thing this year has taught us is that change is constant. With all of the new policies this year it can sometimes be hard to keep up on them. The school district website has a COVID-19 webpage with access to the district Dashboard, the State of Utah School COVID manual, and district policies regarding COVID-19. To access that information, please click here0https://www.davis.k12.ut.us/departments/risk-management/covid19/dashboard.
new Student Registration:
We are in the process of gathering information on our school enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year. Our enrollment numbers are critical to us as we make plans for the coming year. If you have a new student attending next year (K-6), please take a moment and fill out this form. The form is also found on the Tolman Elementary homepage.
There are additional registration documents that can be found on our “Registration Information” page that will need to be turned in. The school will be open on Thursday, January 28th from 2:00 PM – 7:00 PM and Friday, January 29th from 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM to submit new registration documents. If neither of those times work for you, you are welcome to drop off your documents during regular school office hours.
As these numbers are important to our plans for the next school year, if you know any community members with children (K-6) who may be attending Tolman Elementary next year, please guide them to our homepage to fill out the registration form.
PTA Student Directory:
Attached is a copy of the student directory. We would like to thank the PTA for all of their work on this. As a reminder, only those families who have opted-in to the directory are included. PTA Directory
School Breakfast and Lunch:
Our school’s nutrition services want to make sure you are aware that school breakfast and lunch are still free for all enrolled students. Meals are being sponsored by the Department of Agriculture, and that program has been extended through the end of the school year. We want to ensure all our families are aware of this and that our students are getting meals.

Audible is offering many free audio books for our students during this time. This is a great resourse that you can share with your students. There is no log in, they don't ask for any information. Just go to the website below and your students can start listening. I tried it out this morning. Here is the original message from Audible.
