6th Grade Parents!

It's that time to start thinking about your student's plans for next year. You and your student will soon learn about all of the choices Fairbanks has to offer. Here is information about the local middle school open houses for parents. Click on our Ladd K-8 picture to learn more about Ladd's K-8, or a shorter version here. Our lottery is currently open. We will also be sending home paper information on February 12th. If you have any questions about K-8 at Ladd, contact the principal, Cori Anthony.

Reminder: The Stop, Drop and Go is NOT for getting out of your car. You can park on F Street, Baranof or Craig Street. Thanks for keeping our kids' safety a priority.
