Information from Lower South Elementary School

December 11, 2015


Several Lower Southampton students made holiday and thank you cards for troops during the month of November! The cards for the troops were sent to two destinations! Half were sent to Japan and the other half were sent to an army unit stationed in Iraq. The cards were received and greatly appreciated. The troops said the kids really made their day reading the cute cards.

Thank you to the students and staff for participating and making the soldiers and sailors smile!

School Field Trip ~ Alvin and the Chipmunks-The Road Chip Movie

On Wednesday, December 23rd the entire school will be boarding buses to attend our annual movie trip to see Alvin and the Chipmunks-The Road Chip. This trip is in lieu of classroom parties and celebrations. Students and staff will be enjoying Alvin and the Chipmunks-Road Trip at the Neshaminy-AMC Theater. The cost per student is $7.00. Students will leave school at approximately 9:20 a.m. and return by 11:45 a.m. Due to the amount of staff attending-no chaperones will be needed. Please look for the permission slip that will be sent home shortly. Cash or checks should be made out to the Lower South PTO. We look forward to an enjoyable day to celebrate the holiday season as an entire school.


All Neshaminy schools will be closed on December 24, 2015 through January 3, 2016. Enjoy!



Neshaminy School District uses the Parent Link Messaging System to notify parents of a school closing or early dismissal due to inclement weather or other emergencies. This system enables all parents of students to receive a phone call from the district within minutes of making a decision to close school. It is important that you update your contact information in Home Access. School closing information will also be available on the district website at www.neshaminy.k12.pa.us or through radio station WBCB, KYW, Fox News, as well as the Philadelphia radio and t.v. stations. The Neshaminy School District code number is 752. PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE SCHOOL OFFICE. A rush of calls jams the phone lines and prevents emergency calls from being made. It is imperative that you rehearse with your child what they should do in case school closes early. Every parent should have updated their Emergency Contact information on Home Access as well as turned in the Emergency Dismissal Plan that teachers will use in case of an emergency closing.
