Dear LTMS Families,

Welcome to a wonderful school year at Lexington Trails Middle School! Each Friday evening I will be sending out an electronic parent newsletter with highlights from the previous week and information about upcoming events.

First Day of School

Sixth grade students will begin at LTMS on August 14th (7:55 a.m. - 11:15 a.m.). Buses will run that day. Students will walk through their class schedule and eat lunch/brunch. Students will either need to have money in their account, bring cash, or bring a lunch from home.

All 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students will have a full day of school on August 15th (7:55 a.m. - 3:05 p.m.).


Athletics Updates / Practices

We want students to participate in athletics and activities. Studies show that students involved in extracurricular activities do better in school! To participate, students need a physical (dated after May 1, 2019) on file in the office. Fall sports parent meetings (dates/times) will be posted next week.

Back-to-School Night

Tuesday, Aug. 20th, 6-7:30pm

8800 Penner Avenue

De Soto, KS

Please join us to meet our staff and learn more about LTMS. We will meet briefly in the auditorium and then families will have an opportunity to visit classrooms and meet teachers.

Macbook Reminders / Updates

On Monday, August 19th, each student at LTMS will be issued a MacBook. Here are a few quick tips to help students take care of their device:

1. Leave the protective case on at all times.

2. Carry the device with two hands.

3. Don't leave the device in extreme temperatures.

4. Avoid food/drinks near the computer (kids are clumsy and one spill can ruin the machine).

For more information, you can review the MacBook Acceptable Use Policy (click below).
