ELECTION DAY

Learwood Middle School is a voting site for the upcoming elections on November 6, 2018. Your child's safety in pinnacle to us, so we are taking great measures to keep the public away from our students. Voting will take place in the MPR, and the building is secured from the voting area. Additionally, our School Resource Officer will be on location.


If Learwood Middle School is your voting site, you will need to enter through the MPR, we cannot allow you to enter through the main entrance and then walk to the MPR.


If you are dropping your child off to school that day, please leave earlier than normal, because you will encounter additional traffic. Also be aware that others are not familiar with our traffic pattern and may try to create a shortcut to leave.

Big picture

VETERANS DAY

Learwood has had a long-standing tradition of honoring our Veterans. It has been a great program and is appreciated by our students, staff, parents, community members, and most importantly, the Veterans (including Learwood's own Mr. Mark Brandt, Mrs. Sarah Lee, and Mr. Scott Peepers). This year we will be holding our recognition on Monday, November 12th. We have several students whose parents have or are currently serving in the armed forces, including some who are currently deployed. Veterans Day is not a holiday, it is a time for remembrance. Remembrance of our freedoms, our past, and the sacrifices of those who chose our country over their own lives. This year, our guest speaker will be Rear Admiral, Michael N. Parks, U.S. Coast Guard (Retired). We ask that students wear Red, White, and Blue clothing on Monday, November 12th.


If you or a family member are a Veteran and would like to join us for the breakfast and assembly, please RSVP to Mrs. Staley (440-933-8142) by Wednesday November 6th.
