Good morning Throop Families! I just noticed last night's message did not go out until this morning. There are a couple of announcements before we start school today. First, Throop Elementary is a peanut-free campus. The mandate is necessary to ensure the health and safety of all students and staff. Thank you for understanding and complying with this vital issue. The second announcement is that adults of kindergarten and first-grade students can walk the child to the classroom door. Please do not enter the classroom or visit other classrooms. Thank you for helping make our first morning operate smoothly and safely. The staff and I look forward to seeing our little RAMS. It is a great day to be a RAM!

There will be no weekly early dismissals on Wednesday's this school year.

We will know if we are approved when the State Board of Education meets in August. We will share more information at that time.
Due to final exams, we will NOT have early release NEXT WEDNESDAY, May 18th.
