GATORS "create" new learning understandings with Technology

Throughout our school district, Superintendent Steinhauser has made available to all schools a process for giving away "refurbished Chromebooks" to families to use at home supporting their child's access to the technology online programs that are used at school. Technology is used daily for all content areas at Gompers.

1. Every family may enter through the google form below. **ONE form ENTRY per family***

2. Every family who attends their child's parent conference will receive an "additional entry" into the raffle for the opportunity to receive a "FREE CHROMEBOOK" to use at home.

Scholarly Dress Expectations - Notices to Non Adherence Begin

Scholarly Dress is the expectations for students at Gompers.

As discussed in August at the Orientations and Back To School Night, Scholarly dress is the expectation for Gompers Students.

I am saddened that the number of students not in the daily scholarly dress expectations is increasing. LBUSD is a uniform district for students in grades K-8, since 1994.

Please ensure your student(s) are in scholarly dress each day as they walk through the "gates of success".

Notices for noncompliance will begin.

CROSSWALKS are to be used at all times for pedestrain safety. Use them it is not safe to cross without
