New Supt. Blog: Dr. Thurman's First Day of School Message

Posted 8/14/2016

Good Sunday afternoon, this is Dr. Thurman, and I want to let you know how excited we are to welcome students back to school tomorrow morning.  

The beginning of school is also the return of school traffic.  It often takes a few days for school car rider lines to flow efficiently, so we would really appreciate your extreme patience when dropping off or picking up your child this week.  For students who ride the bus, please be at your bus stop at least 10 minutes before your scheduled pick up time Monday.  Parents, please remember that during the first week, afternoon buses can run up to 45 minutes late as students learn the procedures and routes. 

Transportation can be confusing for students on the first day of school, especially younger children.  Many parents like to drop off their child on the first day, but your child may not know how they will be getting home.  Please make sure you communicate to your student and school on whether they will be a car rider or bus rider on Monday afternoon.  

A transportation call center will be open to address any bus concerns beginning Monday afternoon through Thursday of this week.  The center will open at 3 p.m. each day and can be accessed by calling 501-743-3531. 

The Cabot School District now has a new online way for parents to apply for free and reduced priced meals. The information is on our district website and paper applications can be picked up in your student's school office. If you were receiving free or reduced price meals last year, it will be necessary to reapply for the new school year.  If you need assistance call at 843-3363 and ask for Food Service.

If you have a smart phone, please remember to download the Cabot Public Schools app.  This will keep you up to date on announcements, events, and you can even check your student’s grades.  

The Home Access Center will be available to parent this year to provide you with up to date information regarding grades, upcoming assignments and attendance.  Your login and password are the same as they were last school year.  If you are new to the district or you have forgotten your information, please contact your child’s school after Tuesday of this week and we’ll be glad to help.  

The safety and well-being of your children and our students is our number one priority.  Please understand that we will ask for identification if you need to check your child out during the day.  Students will not be allowed to be checked out by anyone who is not on the emergency contact sheet for your child. Please contact your child’s school if this information needs to be updated.  

Finally, we want you and your child to have a great experience at school. We can’t address issues and concerns if we are not made aware of them.  If there is a classroom concern, contact the teacher immediately.  If there is a school concern, contact a building administrator immediately.  If you are not pleased with how the teacher or school addressed the concern, let me know immediately. Always remember that we are here to partner with you. It’s imperative that we work together.  

My contact information can be found on our district website under the administration tab.  

Our children grow up very fast.  The years pass quickly and the moments are too special to take for granted.  Let’s have a good year and thanks for being a part of the Cabot School District! Go Panthers!
