Summer Announcements


Happy Summer TBS Community! 


First Day of School: We look forward to seeing our new 5th graders and returning 6th graders next year. The first day of school for the 2022-2023 year is Monday, August 29, 2022. We will have early dismissal on August 29th and 30th to start our school year.

Teacher Assignments: Teacher names for the 2022-2023 school year will be shared with students and families in August. 

School Supplies: Each teacher has a slightly different set of items to purchase for the upcoming school year. A supply list will be shared when teacher announcements are made.

Health Forms Required for 6th Grade Entry

State regulations require all students entering 6th grade to have a current physical and immunization form on file to start the school year. Please be sure to read through our nurse's letter for all medical requirements to enter grade 6.

Physicals performed before March 1, 2021 have expired and must be updated prior to the start of the school year.

Physicals performed after March 1, 2021 are acceptable for entry into 6th grade. 

Bus Routes 

Specialty Transportation will be providing bus routes to Avon Public School families in late August.



IMPORTANT Parent Pick Up and Drop Off: For safety, there is ‘No Left Turn’ into or out of our South entrance during pick up and drop off times. All parents must approach our entrance from the Old Farms Road direction. This may require extra time in the morning and afternoon when there is a high volume of traffic. Please plan accordingly and be courteous to other drivers.
