Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year!

The faculty at LWJES is excited to begin the 2022-2023 school year! We appreciate seeing everyone who was able to participate in Meet the Teacher.

Please be advised that parents/guardians are not allowed to enter the building in the mornings. Please wish your child a great day at the gate or front doors; only students will enter the building. Parents/guardians will not accompany students to their classrooms on the first day of school. If your child has supplies for the classroom and is not able to carry those supplies to the room, parents/guardians may drop off supplies at the front office to be delivered to classrooms. Please be sure to label all bags/boxes with your child's name and their teacher's name.

If you were not able to attend Meet the Teacher, please send information with your child on the first day about how they are going home. It is imperative that we hear from each parent/guardian regarding their child's plan for dismissal. You may also download the attached document, print it, fill it out, and send it with your child on the first day of school.

Please carefully review information that follows in this newsletter regarding screening your child's health each day. In addition, if there is a positive diagnosis of COVID-19 in your home, please contact CCSD's hotline at (702) 799-4322. Please do not send your child to school until you have been able to communicate with staff from CCSD's hotline.

REMINDER: Screen Your Child's Health Before School Each Day

Families are required to check their child's health each morning before coming to school.

Any students determined to be exhibiting symptoms related to COVID-19 will be sent home immediately from school from the satellite health office. Should isolation and/or quarantine protocols need to be enacted, follow all guidelines for isolation and mandatory mask wearing periods.

Plan Ahead for Arrival and Dismissal

Plan ahead for busy traffic conditions and possible delays! It takes everyone doing their part to make the day successful.

General Reminders

  • The main (Battista Lane) parking lot is closed from 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and from 3:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. If you park in this lot, please remain parked until the blue gates have been opened after buses leave.
  • U-turns are illegal in active school zones.
  • Do not park in red zones or in front of fire hydrants.

  • Students are to enter through the front doors of the school. Please note that there will be no gates in use for student arrival in the morning. Students from the following classes will enter via the Pre-K playground: Ms. Reisner, Ms. Robertson, Ms. Penaflor, and Ms. Walsh.
  • Families may choose to park in a legal parking spot and walk students to the front doors. Be reminded that families are not allowed past the front doors during morning arrival.

Student First Day Information Folders

Each student will receive a folder with a wealth of information for parents/guardians to review, complete, and return. Please be sure to fill out and return the forms from the left pocket of the folder the following day. Please review and keep all materials from the right pocket throughout the year. We recommend using the folder to gather important information throughout the year and keeping it in a safe spot for quick access.

Please note, the Family Guidebook includes information about birthday treats. While we will be able to share birthday treats, please ONLY share treats that are individually-wrapped. Possible options include individually-wrapped store-bought snack treats or small bags of chips.

Class Dojo Information

Please be sure to activate your Class Dojo account as soon as possible using the information provided by your child's teacher. Class Dojo is our school's method for two-way communication between educators and parents/guardians. In addition, messages for the entire school are posted to the school community via Class Dojo.
