To Our TES Family,

Due to upcoming construction here at Thomas Elementary, we must alter our afternoon pickup for our Pre-K students and their siblings. Beginning Wednesday, December 13, 2023, all car riders will now be picked up in the regular car line (including Pre-). Buses will now load in the front of the school, so we will no longer have the space for a separate Pre-K car line. Students will still be brought to each car by an employee who will help them load. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your child's teacher, or the office at (985) 848-2881. Thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter.
