~ Message from Ms. Triplett ~
Looking to this week, we are excited for our Halloween Parade on Monday! Please review the image below to familiarize yourself with the parent viewing areas. Parents will only be permitted in these areas and cannot enter any buildings. As a reminder, student costumes must be school appropriate. Full face masks, excessive blood or gore, and any type of weapon is not permitted. Any students who do not wish to participate in the parade will be provided an alternate activity.
Also, Tuesday there is NO SCHOOL and Wednesday is our restaurant night at The Stand. We are excited to announce our Lang Ranch spirit wear store has reopened for a limited time. Visit langranchspiritwear.com to place your order by November 7th.
Our brand new website for our school will launch today! This website has a beautiful new design, is mobile friendly, user-friendly and will allow us to continue to highlight all the great things happening at our school. While we plan to hit the “launch” button on Friday, October 28th - it may take up to 48 hours for the website transition to complete. During this time it is possible that the website load time may be slow and/or non-responsive. Please plan ahead, in case there are items you plan to access on our websites during the weekend of October 29th and 30th. We look forward to welcoming you to our new website!
We hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Minimizing Classroom Interruptions!
Lunches and Forgotten Items from Home
In order to minimize classroom interruptions, we have implemented procedures with forgotten items. We are receiving a large amount of deliveries for lunches, instruments, water bottles, library books, clothing and backpacks. Please encourage your students to be prepared and check for their belongings before leaving your house. We appreciate your support!
Please note that lunches for grades 1-5 that are delivered to the school will be placed on the table outside of the cafeteria. Students should collect them from the table. They will not be delivered to the classroom.
Lunches for TK and Kindergarten will be delivered to the classroom until the end of October and then after October will be taken to the cafeteria.
Forgotten Instruments will be kept in the front office. Students can come to the front to see if their parent has dropped it off.

If you need to get a message to your student during the day, please contact the teacher directly.
