First Day of School - September 4th, 2018
The first day of school on Tuesday, September 4th will look different next year as we introduce Tolt's new WEB (Where Everybody Belongs) program. WEB 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. The morning will include a welcome assembly, community-building activities, and a tour of our campus. Our 7th and 8th grade students will arrive in the afternoon for shortened class periods. Here is some important information, with times to note:
- 6th graders will pick their bus up at the normal time and arrive at Tolt for the start of school at 8:25 am. 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 scheduled for all 6th graders and 8th grade WEB leaders.
- 7th and 8th graders will pick their bus up 4 hours later than normal for a 12:25 pm start time. (This means if the bus normally picks a student up at 7:38 am, the bus will pick them up at 11:38 am on the first day of school.) Lunch will be available for purchase in the MPR when students get off the bus similarly to how breakfast is served in the mornings. 7th and 8th graders should not arrive on campus until at least noon as their day will not start until 12:25 pm.
- From 12:25 pm-2:57 pm, all students will attend periods 1-6 on a shortened bell schedule. School will end at 2:57 pm for all students. Students in all grades will ride the bus home together.
Your understanding of these shifts to our first day of school are appreciated. We are certainly excited about how the WEB program will help our 6th graders with their transition into Tolt. A big thank you to our Tolt PTSA and REF (Riverview Education Foundation) for providing funding for WEB.
