Campus Vision:

Lamar Elementary is committed to promoting reflective, lifelong learners who will thrive as kind, productive citizens in a global community.

Campus Mission:

At Lamar Elementary our charge is to connect, encourage, and love ALL children EVERY day. We will create a safe, collaborative, and child-focused environment that provides students with innovative learning experiences and high levels of engagement.

A Message from Mrs. Belcher:

Leopard families,


I hope this finds you healthy and full of holiday memories. We are looking forward to welcoming our students back this Wednesday, January 5th. With the recent uptake in Covid, please be mindful of our district protocols. I have linked them below for easy reference. This website is fluid and changes with Covid data. Should any changes take place in the near future, I will communicate that with you through email. Remember, if your child has been exposed or has symptoms, please keep them home and follow the return to school protocol. Covid testing for employees and students reopens tomorrow. You may make an appointment through your child's SSO if needed.
