Dear LP Families,
I know it doesn't always feel like this at times, but we can see the light at the end of the tunnel with the latest Omicron variant bubble. At one point, we were experiencing 69 student absences daily which historically is pretty high for us. We are back down to the low teens which is our normal. Sometimes I need this reminder when everything starts to feel overwhelming. We continue to appreciate your support in reminding students to wear their masks appropriately and socially distance when possible. I am hopeful we are through this latest hurdle. As always, feel free to contact us if you have any questions or need clarifications around our COVID processes.
Enjoy your weekend,

A Note from Ms. McAllister!
Our 5th graders are continuing to receive lessons in the classrooms that are informational and useful. In October, the topic was Bullying. During the month of November, we discussed Personal Hygiene. Last month, we talked about College and Careers. During the month of January, their lessons will be on the topic of Smoking and Vaping. Feel free to review the information below. We encourage you to have discussions with your 5th grader about healthy habits!
Have a great weekend!

Report Card Update:
Our district hopes this letter finds your families happy and healthy. Enclosed you will find a paper copy of your child’s report card. You will also receive a paper copy of the report card in March. However, for the final report card in June, we will not be sending a paper copy. At that time, we will ask that you access your child’s report card through the parent portal in Infinite Campus. You will need a parent portal account to do this. Below are the directions on how to create a parent portal account. If you already have a parent portal account, you can access the report card now in the portal.
We felt it was important to communicate this now, so we have time to support you in this transition. We will resend these directions in March and principals will continue to share this information in their building communications. In June, if you need a paper copy, we will most certainly respond to this request. We will send more details as that final marking period comes to a close.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Parent Portal Instructions:
In order to create a parent portal account, you will need to have an email address on file with the district before you begin. If you do not already have an email address on file with the district you will need to call the main office of your student's school from a phone number associated with you and your student in order for them to update your information. If you have neither an email address nor phone number on file with the district, you will need to visit your student's main office in person.
- Visit www.eastiron.org, click on the Infinite Campus link, select Campus Parent and click the "Click here to request a parent portal activation key" link on the Campus Parent homepage. You may also choose to go directly to the URL below.
- Enter the email address that you provided to the district in the box and click the "Submit" button.
- You will receive an email with your activation key.
- Click the "New User" link on the Campus Parent homepage (refer to step 1 if necessary).
- Enter your activation key in the box and click the "Submit" button.
- Enter your desired username, password, confirm your password and click the "Submit" button.
*iPad Protection* Please Read!
Dear LP Families,
First and most important, I hope this letter finds you well! I am reaching out to any families who have not yet filled out a Device Protection Plan or paid the $25 protection plan fee for your child’s iPad. Here are some frequently asked questions we have received about this plan:
Why would I need a Device Protection Plan?
Every student at Laurelton-Pardee is given an iPad to use for instruction at school, as well as at home. While this is a benefit for our students, the downside is accidents do happen and iPads are sometimes damaged or even lost. If this happens, and you do not have a Device Protection Plan, you could pay upwards of $300 for a damaged iPad and over $400 for a lost iPad! If you pay the $25 protection plan, these charges are significantly reduced. Please see the Program fee/Coverage section on the next page for more information!
How do I sign up for a Device Protection Plan?
Simply fill out the second page and return to the main office with $25 cash or check. You can also do this all online at: https://eicsd.revtrak.net
How often do I have to sign up for this?
You will need to fill out a form and submit $25 EVERY school year. The protection plan fee covers damage or replacement of the iPad for one school year.
Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions. We really want to help our families avoid these high charges if possible and highly encourage you to take advantage of this protection plan.
Dr. Bello (Principal)
