Eunice Thomas Elementary Adopts New Pick-Up Procedure
In an effort to increase student safety, Eunice Thomas Elementary will institute a new pick-up procedure beginning on Wednesday, March 29 for those students that are picked-up at the end of the school day.
Parents will no longer enter the building to pick up their students in the cafeteria. They will be asked to pull into one of four different pick-up zones in the circle drive outside of the Primary cafeteria door. Once a vehicle is stopped, staff will call for students to exit the building to load into their vehicle.
Vehicles will form a single file line entering the circle drive that will run parallel to the front of the school building and down Kid Cat Drive (or 14th Street). After vehicles have lined-up along 14th Street, parents are encouraged to curve the line to run along Park Street.
Four vehicles at a time will be allowed to enter the loading zone and park in a designated loading space. Once all students are in their vehicles safely, all four vehicles will exit. Cars will not be permitted to exit until all four cars are loaded and ready to depart. All four cars will depart at the same time.
 All parents that pick-up their child will be provided with a permit that must be displayed in the right hand front dashboard of their vehicle. The permit will serve as proof of permission for the driver to pick up that specific student.

Parents of 3 and 4 year old children may call the primary office at 847-2445 to schedule an appointment for preschool screening. The DIAL-4 test will screen children in the following areas: concepts, language, and motor development. In addition to the DIAL-4 each child’s vision, hearing, and articulation will be screened. The screening will take at least one hour to complete. Screening results will be shared with the parents. Children who are currently in the Title I preschool OR who will be eligible to attend kindergarten for the 2017-2018 school year should NOT participate in the screening.

Screening results will be used to determine eligibility for the district's two preschool programs: Title I Preschool and Early Childhood Special Education Preschool.
