We are being told by Middle School Students that they can't eat lunch because there is no money in their accounts.  Please communicate the status of your student's lunch account with him or her.  If necessary, please send a check to the front office made to Thompson School District to fill their account, or go to myschoolbucks.com.  Thank you!

A Review of the Tardy Policy

posted Jan 23, 2017, 1:11 PM by Jackie Klein   [ updated Jan 24, 2017, 7:26 AM ]

Since we have been back from winter break, we have noticed an increase in the number of student tardies to class. This includes arriving several minutes after class has started and not having all their materials.   Students miss valuable learning opportunities when they are late, or not prepared. We wanted to remind parents of the tardy policy that was listed in the Middle School Handbook.  The policy is as follows: 

Tardy Policy

  • 5 Tardies will be a lunch detention

  • 2nd lunch detention will result in parent contact

  • 3rd Lunch detention will cause students to be ineligible

  • Chronic tardiness will result in administrative action

  • Each trimester students will start fresh


Starting next Wednesday, 2/1, we will begin holding lunch detentions for those students who have 5 tardies in the previous week. Students that are required to attend will be given slips on Tuesday that require a parent signature. On Wednesdays, students will get their lunch and report to Mrs. Balster's room for the entire lunch and recess time. If students miss detention, they will be expected to serve it the following Wednesday. We are confident this will remind students of the need to use their passing periods wisely, get to class on time, and have all the materials needed to be successful.

Welcome Back Students
