Hello LECC Tiger Cub Families!

I hope this email finds you well! We have had a fabulous first week in session here at LECC with our Kindergarten Tiger Cubs! It was so nice to have our staggered start days to work closely with smaller groups of students to start learning to navigate our learning spaces, building relationships with members of our school team, and making connections with new friends! Thank you to all of our families, teachers, and staff for making this a great first week for our KG Tiger Cubs!

Looking into next week, we will have our first safety drill here at LECC. We will complete a fire drill under the direction of the Loveland Fire Department. This is a required coordinated drill with our local fire department that we must complete at the start of every school year. It is very important to be prepared, not scared in the event of an emergency and we are thankful for the LFD to be here for our first drill with KG Tiger Cubs.

In addition, we will welcome our Preschool Tiger Cubs and families here at LECC on Wednesday, 08/24/2022 from 3:30-4:30. If you are in the AM Preschool cohort, please plan to drop off your supplies and see the classroom anytime between 3:30-4:00 pm. If you are in the PM Preschool Cohort, please plan to drop off your supplies and see the classroom anytime between 4:00-4:30 pm. We can't wait to welcome our PS Tiger Cubs officially during the week of August 29th!

I am looking forward to spending time with my family this weekend and soaking in these last few weeks of summer. I hope you all have a safe and wonderful weekend!

It is a great day to be a LECC Tiger Cub! Thank you!

Sara L. Gehring


LECC Tiger Cub Bus Riders

A trusted adult must be at the bus stop to welcome your child home at the end of his/her school day. This is meant to keep our Tiger Cubs safe. Our bus drivers are unable to leave a student without a trusted adult at the stop. When a trusted adult is not ready and present for bus drop-off, it impacts other students getting home in a timely manner. We appreciate your help with this need and being ready at your child's drop-off time and location every school day.

LECC Tiger Cub Car Riders Reminders

  • Please have your child ready to exit your car as you pull up to the designated drop-off zone in front of our building.
  • Students should have his/her backpack ready in lap. This helps with a smooth transition from car to staff member greeting your child into the building.
  • Adults dropping off LECC students must remain inside the vehicle at all times. For safety purposes, we will take care of getting your child out of the car.
  • Cars must stay within the coned loop during the arrival process and not pull around cars in front of you.
  • Display numbered vehicle tag on your mirror for our staff to radio into the building.
  • If you need a vehicle tag, please contact the front office for one.
  • Adults picking up an LECC student must remain inside the vehicle. For safety purposes, our staff will walk your child to the waiting vehicle and assist the child in opening the door.
  • Cars must stay within the coned loop during the dismissal process and not pull around cars in front of you.
  • If your child cannot buckle themselves into their car seats, please pull into a parking space and take your time fastening your child into the car correctly at the top of our parking lot.
  • We are unable to process early dismissals once our dismissal procedures have started at 10:40 am (half-day) and 2:40 pm. Please join the car line for your child to be dismissed to you.

We appreciate sharing these helpful reminders with any trusted adult who is dropping off/picking up your child at LECC. Thank you for your patience.
