Loggerhead Letter

September 2023

From Your Principal

Loggerhead families,

I have been on the job officially as principal for a little over a month now, and it's been nothing short of amazing. I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the familiar faces, and meeting new ones for the first time. I want to thank you for welcoming me into this role-- Laurel Hill is truly my home!

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that our focus this year is remembering that we are primary. The definition of primary is "first in order; of utmost importance". At Laurel Hill, we are committed to that principle- that the work we do here is valuable, and it's worth the hard work that our staff put in. I'm so encouraged that I work with a staff who, like me, are willing to go the extra mile for your child. We are also lucky to have families that support our work here as well...so thank you!

As we start to get into the groove of the school year, please make sure you read through the News and Notes section below. Our processes, procedures, and systems we put in place only work with your support; if something isn't clear, please let me know.

If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Jason Sims


News and Notes

  • Please make sure you are reading through the arrival and dismissal procedures located on the Parent-Student Handbook, particularly if you have last minute changes in dismissal. Dismissal changes need to be in writing with a note in your child's folder.
  • If your child is absent, you do NOT need to call the office to let us know. Please remember to send an absence note in your child's folder upon return.
  • Less than 50% of our enrollment have paid their instructional fees. These fees are valuable to us and are used in a variety of ways that improve your child's experience at Laurel Hill. If you have not yet paid your child's fees, you can do so here.
  • Bus riders- although the First View is a handy tool, you should not rely on the app for live tracking of the buses, and should be at the stop at the assigned time.
  • Yearbooks are on sale now! You can order your yearbooks here.
