First Day of School - September 4th, 2018
First Day of School Schedule:
6th graders and 8th grade WEB leaders: 8:25AM-2:57PM
7th and 8th graders: 12:25-2:57PM
We are excited for the first day of school at Tolt with our new WEB (Where Everybody Belongs) Program, which helps students transition into 6th grade through engaging activities led by 8th grade student leaders. In the morning, 6th graders and 8th grade WEB leaders will be the only students on campus as they participate in WEB activities. Our 7th and 8th grade students will arrive in the afternoon for shortened class periods.
Here are some important details about the day for families to share with their student.
- 6th graders will catch their bus at the normal time and arrive at Tolt for the start of school at 8:25AM.
- When you get to school in the morning, report to the MPR (Multi-Purpose Room) to drop off your backpack. Then, go to the outdoor basketball court.
- The Gym doors will open at 8:25AM for 6th graders to go into the Gym for a Welcome Assembly.
- Breakfast will be available for purchase in the MPR as it normally is in the mornings when students get off the bus.
- There be a 30-minute lunch from 11:15-11:45AM. 6th graders will be able to buy lunch or they may bring their own lunch from home.
- 6th Graders will receive a copy of their up-to-date schedule from their WEB leader during the morning WEB activities. Schedules will have a copy of the building map on the back.
- 7th and 8th graders will catch their bus 4 hours later than normal for a 12:25PM start time. (This means if the bus normally picks a student up at 7:38AM, the bus will pick them up at 11:38AM on the first day of school.)
- When you get to school in the afternoon, look for your grade-level alphabetical name list, which will be posted in multiple spots in the breezeway. Find your 1st period teacher's names listed along with their classroom number and go to your 1st period class.
- 7th and 8th Graders will receive a copy of their up-to-date schedule in their 1st period class. Schedules will have a copy of the building map on the back.
- 7th and 8th graders should not arrive on campus until at least 12:00PM as their day will not start until 12:25PM. Buses will drop students off at Tolt at 12:13PM.
- Lunch will be available for purchase in the MPR when students get off the bus similarly to how breakfast is served in the mornings.
- 8th Grade WEB Leaders:
- Be at Tolt by 7:15AM. You will need to arrange your own transportation.
From 12:25PM - 2:57PM, all students will attend periods 1-6 on a shortened bell schedule. School will end at 2:57PM for all students.

Our Tolt PTSA is providing refreshments for 6th grade parents in the MPR starting at 8:25AM. Drop your 6th grader off and then come connect with our PTSA and other 6th grade parents.
A big thank you to our Tolt PTSA and REF (Riverview Education Foundation) for providing funding for WEB.
We are looking forward to seeing our students on Tuesday!
