B.A.S.E. Camp Hours
The Thompson School District is a "school of choice" district which allows you to enroll your child in an out-of-area school. In-area school children are given first priority and if there is room remaining, the school may accept out-of-area students. More information is available on the Thompson School District website.
If you would like more information about Ponderosa Elementary and the enrollment process, please call our Secretary, Sheri Fender, at (970) 679-9500.
Student Safety is VERY important at PES
Some Important Safety Notes
¨ Always ensure we have the most recent and accurate phone numbers to reach parents/guardians. Changes to your information/authorized transporters for your student should be made in person.
¨ Please be prepared to show photo ID to pick up your student(s) early from school/outside normal school hours.
¨ Please use the front doors only to enter the school, sign in and use a badge. This lets all staff know you’ve signed in the front office.
¨ Please do not park in the drop off lane.
¨ Please reserve the disabled parking slots for our guests that display the placards/plates.
¨ Encourage your student to dismount all wheeled items (bikes, roller blades, scooters) at the crosswalk to our school grounds.
¨ Please bring only prior approved animals onto school grounds.
¨ We go outside to play at 15◦ with wind chill. Please encourage children to dress appropriately.
¨ During warm months, shorts/skirts should be past downward extended finger tips. Shirts should have a strap at least 4 finger width (no spaghetti straps or tank tops).
¨ We have staff on duty prior to school beginning at 8:33 am. Students should not be on the playground prior to this time due to no supervision.
A reminder that the marked parking spaces are reserved for people with disabilities. The spaces are not to be used for picking up and dropping off. If you need to park, please use the parking lot. Thank you for your cooperation.
