The top seller in each grade level will win Pacers tickets for their family and a popcorn party for their class! Students also have the chance to earn up to $200 in Amazon gift cards! Thank you for your support! (see below for more information)


I would like to invite all of our LP dads, uncle, grandpas, and/or other role models to attend our Dad's Tailgate Party this Thursday @ 5:00pm! See below for more information.

SCHOOL DISTRICT PUBLICATIONS/NEWS MEDIA USE

The occasion may arise when the school district wants to recognize your child or your child's school. This may include your child's photo, your child's name or your child's work in district publications, newsletters, on school district websites, and in electronic/social media or in staff training videos. We may also want to tell the media (including newspapers, television, and radio) about your child's achievements. We never knowingly release information about a student to anyone who wants to use it for commercial/political purposes. However, we will honor your request to not include your child in these types of recognitions if you notify your child's school office in writing that you do not want this type of information released.
