Cold Weather All Week - Dress for the Weather and Stay Informed
It is going to be a cold week. Please help to have your kiddo dressed for the weather including recesses. We aim to have kids outdoors for recess times.
Just when you thought we were finished with inclement weather messages, this cold snap may impact school this week.
Inclement Weather Messages
Schools messages regarding inclement weather school cancelled/delayed days, general notifications and emergencies are sent through our parent notification program, Blackboard Connect. If you are not receiving these messages, it could be due to changing phone carriers, or having an incorrect number in the system. If you believe that is the case, please call the school's office so we can refresh your account.

FlashAlert is another source of receiving inclement weather notifications.
Keeping you informed is important to us. By making sure we have your updated phone and email information, you help us keep you up-to-date on your student’s attendance, in emergency situations, school events, and on important issues. The information is provided to you through software that can relay messages through voice messages, e-mail communications, and text messages.
Keeping Kindness Top of Mind - All Month Long!
All month long, kids and staff at Laurel are focusing on kindness. We are looking for acts of kindness in all parts of the day and celebrating them to help keep kindness on the mind of everyone in the Laurel community. You can be a part of this by asking your learner some of these questions when you talk about the day:
- What did you do today to show kindness?
- Did someone do something kind for you?
- Did you see others being kind or helpful?
- How do you feel when you help someone?
- How do you feel when someone is kind to you?
- What is something you can do tomorrow to demonstrate kindness?
