Parent Newsletter, LVES 2022-2023, Edition 8, Sept. 23
Please Don't Park in the Fire Lane! We Need to Keep It Open in Case of Emergency. Thank You!
If a student fails to attend school on ten or more days or parts of days within a six-month period in the same school year, truancy may be prosecuted as a civil case in a truancy court. Family Code 65.003(a), (b).
Attendance warning letters will be sent for 3, 7, and 10 absent days.
A student is required to be in a class at least 90% of the time in order to receive credit for that class. For our elementary students, this means that they cannot be absent more than 16.5 days in a school year.
Tardies are also partial absence days since students are missing a part of the instructional day if they arrive after 7:45AM.

Yellow Car Tags
If you need a yellow car tag please email Mrs. Kuske at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you do so she will send it home in your students backpack either on the day the request was made or the following school day.
Dropping off items?
Please drop off items on the left hand side table. There are labels and pens, please include your students first and last name, grade level and teacher. All items must be delivered before 9:30am. If you are dropping off medication please pick up the phone and ask for the school nurse.
Picking your child up early?
Be sure to have your driver's license with you at all times. Even if you are in the raptor system just in case. Please plan on arriving before 2:45pm to pick up your student. You may email your student's teacher to let them know if you're picking up early so that they can be sure to have their things packed up before that time. You may not email teachers to send students to the front office at a certain time. For safety, parents must sign out their student on Raptor and have your ID scanned. Mrs. Kuske (Marcy) will then verify that you are authorized and call for your student. If you need assistance please pickup the phone in the foyer.

LVES Watch D.O.G.S
First off, thank you so much for your interest in our Watch D.O.G.S program. We are excited to be able to get this awesome program up and running for our students. All interested Watch D.O.G.S who have submitted an application have been e-mailed.
Our orientation date is dependent upon all background checks clearing. As soon as we are notified that all background checks have been completed and cleared, we will reach out again with our orientation date and time.
Please note that all background checks need to be submitted every school year. This means that if you submitted and cleared a background check last school year, you'll need to resubmit a new one for this school year.
We are looking forward to having you on our campus as a Watch DOG soon!

From the Nurse
With a new year back in gear, we wanted to update everyone on this year's Covid Protocol. Instead of students staying home for any single Covid symptom, we have differentiated the symptoms into milder and more serious ones. Please see the different symptom lists here. The number of restricted days has also changed from 10 days to 5 days of isolation.
We hope this helps clarify the process for everyone.
Please don't hesitate to call Nurse Foster if you have questions.

Stay Alert System
StayALERT is a bilingual, confidential website, e-mail, phone and texting avenue for students, teachers, staff, parents and community members to be able to confidentially report unsafe behaviors, suspicious activities, bullying, acts of violence, harassment, and a host of other potential disruptors to school safety. Reportable information will be forwarded in a timely manner to a pre-designated school official for review.
