Important Safety Reminders

We have to work together to keep our campus safe. Please take a moment to review these important safety reminders when picking up/dropping off your students:
  1. Have your child exit from the passenger side of the car.
  2. Use the parking lot crosswalks when walking your students to the entry/exit points.
  3. Although there are folks lined up on the sidewalk, please remain on the sidewalk when walking to entry/exit point.
  4. Please be on time when picking up your child(ren). We are not able to have students wait in the office, and this becomes a supervision issue.
  5. If you are chatting with other folks after dropping off/picking up, please do so off campus to avoid gatherings.
  6. SLOW DOWN in the parking lot. Although it may seem empty, there are always people walking on/off campus.

#LietzPride Book Challenge

Don't forget about our reading challenge!


We challenge you to read 30, 40 or 50 books by the end of April! Use this document to keep track of the books you have read. When you're all done, color in the document and drop it off at the office! We will hang up your challenge submission on campus! This challenge includes digital books as well. We have printouts available in the office if you do not have a printer.


Can't wait to see all the titles you've read!
