What's Happening This Week?

Parents, please mark your calendars for some important upcoming events. We will have our Math & Science Night on Tues, January 31st from 5 to 6:30. We hope you'll make plans to join us. We will have a kickoff for our Jump Rope for Heart campaign on February 1st. We are hosting a blood mobile for a blood drive on February 2nd from 10-1 for parents and families. We are wanting to help our community through these efforts and are helping promote healthy living. This week on Friday we will have our Bronco Brag Parade to celebrate students who have done their Bronco Best! Honored students will receive invitations. Remember that students must meet attendance requirements for the whole school year to promote to the next grade. Students with more than 10 unexcused absences do not meet the attendance requirements. If your child misses school, please send in any doctor's notes upon their return. We appreciate your help in this matter. We are continuing our Attendance Challenge to see which grade level has the best attendance. 3rd grade won top honors last month. Let's make this a great week at South Fork Elementary!

Online Cafeteria Payments for Extra Items

Parents, we are seeing students lose their cafeteria money and this causes problems. PLEASE use the online payment to put money in your child's account. This is much easier!
All LPPS students receive free breakfast and lunch. For students eating lunch in the cafeteria, there are extra items for purchase. Ice cream is sold on Fridays. (Not Pre-K) Parents are encouraged to add money to your child's account for these extra items. If your child uses cash, please know that change is not given and the money goes into their account. However, online is preferred for elementary students as they often lose cash. Click the link below to set up your student's account and add money to it. Cash can ONLY be used for extra cafeteria sales but online is highly preferred.
