Thursday Connection

Getting Started

Thursday Connection Registration Easy As 1,2,3

  1. Complete the Student Draft Schedule (one per student) according to the Semester Schedule. 
  2. Attend TC's in-person registration event to sign up for 16 family work hours to help the cooperative operate safely and smoothly.
  3. Register online during the date/time window assigned to you and complete payment of required fees by the due date.

1. Student Draft Schedule

Download, print, and complete Student Draft Schedule for each of your students. Course Descriptions are also available online. Be sure to add “Lunch” at 11, 12, or 1, if you’d like to reserve a space in the lunchroom for your child. One breakroom hour per student is included - it will need to be noted on your schedule for the appropriate hour and not during lunch times.

2. In-person registration/Family Work Hours

You will be assigned to a group for later registration online by priority of arrival. Families will work with the Family Work Coordinator to sign up for 16 work hours. These four 4-hour shifts, sixteen 1-hour shifts, or other co-op work, such as helping with events, are assigned as available.

Your Student Draft Schedule form(s) will be checked for errors and your work hours will be entered into the system for future reminders.

3. Register Online

Based on your priority group, register for classes online during your assigned window or later. Be sure to add the Family Registration Fee for $60/semester + $10/student/year insurance +$5 one-time parking fee. (e.g., For a new family with 3 children, this would be $95; for a returning family in the spring, this would be $60.)

Fees are payable and due by May 2nd, 2019 for the Fall 2019 semester and a date TBA for the Spring 2020 semester.

Fall tuition will then be due on the first Thursdays of September, October, and November; Spring tuition will be due on the first Thursdays of February, March, and April.


A Note about Lunch

Please note: your schedule may be limited by our lunch availability. We are very glad that we can usually accommodate students who have a one-hour break in their schedules: there is usually a place for these students in the break room. Unfortunately, during the lunch hours, there is no space for students on campus with a break in their schedules, because the break room is being used for lunch students. When a lunchtime becomes full, students will either need to choose morning classes or afternoon classes or go off-campus during lunch hours. The noon lunch fills quickly, so please be prepared with an alternate schedule in case this may impact yours. Know that we are not happy with this limitation, but we currently have no alternatives.
