Meet Miss Pape, Interim Principal at Lake Louise

I am Miss Ellen Pape and I am so excited to be the Interim Principal at Lake Louise. I look forward to getting to know the entire Lake Louise community over the next few months and am here to partner with you! Should you need any support, please feel free to contact me at

Meet Mrs. Walsh, Interim Assistant Principal at Lake Louise

We warmly welcome Mrs. Kris Walsh, a veteran administrator, to Lake Louise. As you see her around, please give her a warm Lake Louise welcome!

Fall/Halloween Celebrations

Lake Louise will celebrate the Fall and Halloween seasons with a Spirit Week during the week of October 25th (see schedule below). On Friday, October 29th, K-2 students can wear their costumes to school and have a Fall Festive Parade. We will parade outside around the blacktop beginning at 9:30 am. PM Kindergarten and ECDEC will parade outside around the blacktop beginning at 1:00 pm. If there is inclement weather, the parades will be canceled.

Costume accessories are not encouraged as students will be wearing their costumes all day. Teachers will not be able to help students change into or out of costumes at school; which is why we are having parades in the morning and discouraging accessories and face make-up. As previously communicated through our District guidelines, students cannot have costumes that have weapons, blood, violence or items that may frighten younger children. Students will be required to wear their health face coverings/masks during the day. Costume masks are not permitted and face make up is not encouraged.

We are aware that some families do not celebrate Halloween or Fall Festivities. If you wish for your child to not participate in the parade or festivities, please reach out to your child’s classroom teacher. Thank you for your continued support! We are so happy to celebrate fall festivities with our students who deserve some extra fun!

  • Stay aware throughout the car line. Reminder that cell phone use in a school zone is prohibited.
  • Students will be released and loaded into cars in the student loading zone on the passengers side of the car. Please pull all the way forward.
  • Students will not be allowed to cross into the parking lot or go across the exit path to waiting cars.
  • Cars must be in the car line and within the student loading zone for students to be released.
