Once signed in, visitors will be directed to our cafeteria to reserved seating. Check in with staff inside the cafeteria to inform them you’ll be eating lunch with your student.
Lunch visitors may bring in lunch for their student only. No other students may join the student and their visitor.
We ask that guests return their child back to the class table 5 minutes before the end of lunch. Visitors may not attend recess or walk to the classroom.
We need you!
The LES PTO needs parent & family member volunteers to help serve LES students & staff this school year. Please complete the PTO interest form or email email@example.com to be added to our contact list.
There are a few opportunities already scheduled for the fall where we need volunteers.
- Lunch Duty - Friday's - October 20, November 17, December from 10:30am-1:00pm. We would like to provide our teachers with a break from lunch duty on a Friday each month. We need 6-8 volunteers for each day to be able to cover for all the teachers. It's also our hope that if we have enough volunteers that you could eat with your child if you want to do that too. If you are able to help, please sign up on the LES Lunch Duty sign-up sheet.
For those of you who do not work in the Lexington One district, there is a required volunteer application that must be completed to be able to help at school events. If you have not already submitted an application for the 23-24 school year, please do that online: https://www.lexington1.net/volunteers.
Again, we appreciate your interest in contributing to the PTO and LES.
