Back to School August 22nd!

Dear Thornton Fractional District 215 Families,

I hope you have had an enjoyable summer! Our TF215 staff are gearing up to welcome our students back for their first day of school on Monday, August 22nd and a great 2022-2023 school year. You play a vital role in making the start of school successful. In order for your student(s) to start school, please read the information below and make sure you have completed the registration process and residency verification by Tuesday, August 9th.

While summer may be “down time” for many people, it has been anything but quiet at TF215. In addition to welcoming new staff and administrators to our team, our North and South buildings have undergone major construction projects. The efforts at TF North are highlighted by the most significant work on the auditorium since being built in 1963 with a complete remodel and the addition of upgraded sound and lighting systems. Throughout many areas of the school, the 1963 sprayed-on ceiling was replaced, and LED lights were installed. Four student bathrooms were remodeled after the waterlines from 1963 were replaced. The creation of the new culinary lab and career development suites will expand the work-based learning opportunities for our students. The purple gym floor was also completely refinished.

At TF South, for enhanced aesthetics, security and safety, many classroom doors (which were from 1957) were replaced. Make sure when you visit the school that you glance in the rebranded/refinished red gym—the new logo looks incredible, and we cannot wait for our students, families and staff to see it. A major roofing project was also completed this summer at South.

There is so much more I will continue to share with you throughout the year and I look forward to meeting you at numerous school events. In the meantime, please regularly monitor your email from your school for updates regarding the opening of school and may your last few weeks of summer be fun and safe!
