Thank you Thunder Mountain Families and Staff!

Our second week of school is now underway, and we want to extend our gratitude to all of our families and our hard working staff for the successful start to the year! 


We appreciate your cooperation with our Thunder Mountain Parent Pick Up and Drop Off Procedures 22-23.  As the next several days go by, this process will become much more efficient due to everyone working together to follow the procedures.  Placing a  sign with your child’s name and grade in the car window is extremely helpful in having your child ready when your car reaches the loading zone.

Panorama Student Well-Being Survey:

Starting Aug. 22nd, schools will administer a brief Panorama survey to all students in grades 3-12. Questions are focused on students’ sense of wellbeing. We care very much about our young people and want to ensure they all feel safe and supported. The survey should take no more than 10-15 minutes and is a fast and efficient way to ensure we can hear the voices of all students in each school. 

The purpose of this survey is to help staff identify and support each individual student's needs.  The questions are about them personally,  but are necessary so we can help connect students with any support they may need in order to be successful. We have many resources to help our students and their families inside the district as well as through our community partners. Information provided in this screener will be shared with only the counselors and administrators. Counselors will follow up with your child as needed.  As a reminder, support is always available to your child. If your child  needs anything please have them reach out to their counselor, or any of our administrators so we can help.

Please take a few minutes to review the questions included in this survey.  If you would like to opt your

child out, please find the opt out form on the D51 website. Go to Parents, Assessment Information, Student Surveys. Under student surveys you will find Parent excusal form. Fill it out and return it to the office at your child’s school.  3-5 Well-Being Survey
