Winter Weather Preparedness

The winter weather season is fast approaching, so the time to be prepared is NOW! If a delay due to inclement weather is necessary, Little Miami will make an announcement via the SwiftK12 notification system (LM phone calls, emails & text messages), post on LM social media & website, and report delays/closures to local media stations.

LM utilizes 90-minute delays when weather warrants a delay and not a full school closure. Please save the graphic below for your use on days we are on a delay! Preparedness tip: print and tape the graphic to your refrigerator for convenience!

Imagination Library - ENROLL TODAY

DID YOU KNOW? By the age of three, a child’s brain is already 80% developed, and, by the time a child enters kindergarten, they must already know thousands of words in order to succeed in the classroom. Reading aloud to a child and giving them access to books is the best way to ensure they are prepared to enter kindergarten.

The Ohio Governor’s Imagination Library wants to start a new chapter in early childhood literacy throughout Ohio by providing families with books. With the goal of preparing students entering Kindergarten for success in the classroom, the Imagination Library program will send a customized book to your child each month from birth until age five. Sign up is easy and FREE! Give your Panther the gift of reading & enroll today.
