Daily Time and Bell Schedule


We follow District 15 schedule and match most days off of school throughout the year. We also follow their emergency closing procedures. There are a few days that District 15 does not have school but St. Thomas does. There will be no busing those days so you will need to make arrangements to get your child to and from school.

In the event of a school closing, you will receive automated email, voicemail and text alerts to the phone numbers and email addresses you provided. Please make sure the school has the most updated contact information. For weather related closure, please also watch the news or check the school closure websites

  • The office is open from 7:30 to 2:30 on days when school is in session.
