Attention Parents/Guardians

Thompson School District requires anyone who attends a private function at the school, such as visiting a classroom, helping with a class party, having lunch at the school, or chaperoning a field trip be registered through VITAL. You can register online through this link, or call the VITAL office at 970-613-5073. VITAL will send a badge for each person who passes the background check. This process can take up to two weeks, so plan ahead. We will not be able to admit a person into the school unless there is a VITAL badge on file in the front office. We appreciate your understanding as we all do our best to keep your children safe.
