Lemur Weekly Update

Leaman Elementary Steam Academy - August 14th, 2022

Welcome Back for the 2022-23 School Year!

We hope all our lemurs and families had a wonderful summer and enjoyed some time to relax, have fun, and gear up for this next awesome school year! Our staff has been working hard this week to prepare for our load of lemurs to arrive on Thursday. We can't wait to see you all!

Upcoming Events & What's New

First Day of School!

Thursday, August 18th, is the first day of school for Western Placer Unified School District. Our gates open at 7:55 am for students to enter campus and head to the playground or the MP room if they need breakfast. New students will have a chance to find their classes, and staff will be present for any assistance. Parents are welcome to walk their students on campus Thursday and Friday this week only. We ask that parents exit the campus promptly at the first bell - 8:10am.

Drop-off and Pick-up

Gates open at 7:55am, so plan your student drop-off accordingly. Please utilize parking as much as possible as the drive-throughs can become congested causing street traffic back-up. We encourage TK/Kindergarten and 1st grade students to be dropped-off near the Caledon Cir. drive-through, close to the Kinder playground. We encourage 2-5th grade students to be dropped-off near the Brentford Cir. drive-through. Please see the map below. We also have a secure bike rack for students.

Breakfast and Lunch

Students will now have the option for free breakfast and/or lunch in California. Students will use their lunch cards (we will provide them here) to get a meal if you choose. I will post our weekly menu here each week, and it is available on the district website.
