Breakfast & Lunch

In an effort to do a better job of obtaining federal funds for Thoreau, we are being more diligent about collecting lunch account forms. Your completed lunch forms equal funds. Whether you think that you qualify or not, you must complete this form. During Timberwolf camp, we are offering two options to help get the form completed.

Option 1 - includes you completing the form online at home and printing out a paper copy to give to us at Timberwolf camp.

Option 2 - Complete a hard copy in the Thoreau cafeteria.

SchoolMessenger:

For the 19-20 school year, we will use the SchoolMessenger communication system to keep our families updated. It gives us the ability to contact you by phone & text in the event of emergency weather closings and delayed starts. Make sure your contact information is up-to-date with your school and to opt-in to receive text messages, text "Yes" to 67587.

We use three guiding principles to make decisions about postponing or closing schools for inclement weather:

  • Time spent in the classroom is integral to preparing students for academic success.
  • Students and staff must be able to get to and from school safely.
  • Parents and guardians must have adequate time to make arrangements for transportation or childcare.

School closings or delays are communicated widely through our website, social media, SchoolMessenger communication system, and local news outlets.

Learn more about our inclement weather procedures here.
