Dear TGS Families, Tonight at the board meeting, the board made masks recommended not required effective immediately. The board asks that families take advantage of this teachable moment and to have a conversation with your family regarding the importance of respecting personal choice for every stakeholder in our school. They urge us all to use this opportunity to teach our kids about courage, kindness and empathy as we move forward. There will be no tolerance for any person questioning, intimidating or harassing another regarding their choice in mask usage. Thank you for continue support through the ever changing landscape of Covid. Sincerely, TGS Administration
Happy February! ❤️ Check out this month’s newsletter.

Dear TGS Families, I know that these are confusing and chaotic times for everyone and information seems to be changing by the minute, so I just want to send this communication out to keep everyone informed about what Thomasboro Grade School is doing. On Friday, February 4, 2022, the Sangamon County Circuit Court granted a temporary restraining order (TRO) affecting certain school districts and specific individuals in those districts. The TRO temporarily suspended enforcement of mask mandates for students and exclusion for asymptomatic close contacts. Our District was not a party to that case. The case is being appealed and a request to stay the court’s TRO ruling has been filed. We expect a decision on this request to be made either today or tomorrow. Regardless of that decision, we anticipate that the Appellate court will make a final ruling on this TRO by February 17th. If the appellate court overturns the judge’s decision, then we would be required to enforce all of the mandates. There are a number of possibilities that could occur if the appellate court upholds the judge’s decision. Those will depend on what the court actually says in its ruling. At this time, we are asking that everyone be patient as we await the outcome. When we make changes to our mitigating procedures, we want those changes to be sustainable. We do not want to be in a situation where we are changing the expectations for the students and the staff on a weekly basis, which could happen if we change any of our mitigating procedures right now. We know that a court decision is only, at most, one week away. We will wait until we have that decision before we make any changes to our mitigating procedures. We appreciate your patience and continued cooperation through these times. We will get through all of this together and I am greatly looking forward to returning to a sense of normalcy as soon as possible.
6th grade worked hard for a week to engineer Mars rovers (egg drop contraptions) that would help an astronaut (an egg) land safely on Mars. Today we put their engineering skills to the test!
