2021 - 2022 School Year

October 6, 2021

Dear Tonica Grade School Families:

Thank you for your understanding during our recent closure due to a water main pipe break that serviced the school.  The closures on September 29 and 30 will be made up at the end of the year like a snow day closure.  The new calendar will be uploaded to the calendar page, now showing students coming to school on the Tuesday after Memorial Day with an 11:30 am dismissal.  We still have three emergency days left and the end of the year is still tentative pending use of the remaining days on June 2, 3 and/or 6 of 2022.

We are working on a single bus route for the morning that remains consistent regarding pick-up times based upon parent requests for steady pick-up times versus alternating times under a GREEN/RED system.  Pending the pick-up times we may be able to provide an early drop-off at 7:30 am only for bus riders that are before a set pick-up time in the early portion of the route or after 7:50 a.m. as the bus would still not arrive until after school begins daily.

Reminder that on Friday, October 8th students will not be at school as that is an Institute Day.  Also, the following Wednesday, October 13th is a 1:30 p.m. dismissal.  On early dismissal days please adjust your schedule to be here to pick up students or greet younger students when they arrive home.

On October 7th we are welcoming the Tonica Fire and EMT to the school for Fire Prevention Week.

Finally, please support the PTC the best you can by participating in the Fannie Mae fundraiser.  Order forms and money are due on Tuesday, October 19th to the school.

Thank you

Mr. Schneider

Tonica Grade School Sign

The Tonica Community Consolidated School District #79 is a K-8th grade district encompassing 59 square miles.

For a period of forty years, from 1868 to 1907, and before additions, the main part of this school house [called the “white school” because of its exterior color] was built in 1868 and before that time two one-room structures were used on this site for eleven years.
