  • Update on Progress Reports

    A reminder to parents that progress reports will not be going home this week. Report cards went out on 12/9, parent teacher conferences were 12/14 and Winter vacation was 12/26-12/30. There were not enough sufficient instructional days to issue a meaningful progress report. If there was a concern regarding particular students, teachers would be in touch with parents. In the future, dates will be better aligned to the trimester format.​

  • PTO Meeting Postponed

    Due to the winter weather we are expecting, the PTO meeting scheduled for today, Tuesday January 17th will be rescheduled. The new date is Thursday, January 26th at 6:00pm in the School Library. Thank you for your understanding. We hope to see you on the 26th!

    Tilton School Arrival & Dismissal Procedures

    • Students will walk into the school building using the main stairs and to their grade level hallway or to the cafeteria for breakfast. Teachers will be stationed all along the way to help the students get to their hallway or cafeteria safely.
    • Please have students ready to exit the car when you pull up to the sidewalk.
    • For safety reasons, please only have students cross the street in the cross walk with the crossing guard.
