Lakehoma Ledger

September 2019

Welcome Back!

We are so excited for the 2019-2020 school year!

We have just a few reminders: All visitors must check-in the office. Please use the computer system and print off a visitor badge. You will need a valid ID to do this.

Also, if you plan to check your child out early, you will need to follow the same procedure. If someone other than the parent/legal guardian will be picking your child up before school is out, the parent/legal guardian must call the school and inform us of who this will be.


Please keep up-to-date with our school website, Facebook page and Instagram:
