Thornton Elementary is hosting a mobile COVID testing site, run by Mobile Health. The testing site will be operating every Tuesday at 8:00 am. Any student can be tested, however, to have a student tested, a parent consent must be filled out prior. Click here for the English consent form, and click here for the Spanish consent form. Students will be pulled from their class and brought to the testing room. The test should only take no more than 10 minutes. As an incentive, The State of Colorado is paying $25/per student for the first test, and $10/per student (a week) after for each additional test. There are no limits on how many tests one student can receive.

Farmer’s Market

Dear Five Star Families, 


Due to nationwide supply chain disruptions and labor shortages, Nutrition Services is experiencing shortages in our milk supply and food offerings, like many industries and school districts across the state and nation. While we are searching for solutions, it is possible that we may have days where we are unable to serve the advertised menu on Nutrislice. Nutrition Services will ensure a beverage and entree are always available for all students. 


If your student has a severe allergy and is choosing to eat breakfast and lunch with us, please consider completing a Medical Statement for Meal Modifications Form, found on the Adams 12 website under Nutrition Services. This will allow the kitchen staff to prepare a safe meal for your child, despite last-minute menu changes. Additionally, Nutrition Services will ensure a vegetarian option is available daily.


We greatly appreciate your understanding while we work diligently towards a long-term solution.
