Lenox Elementary

Family Newsletter-March 4, 2021

Greetings Families,


Yesterday, HSD sent out communication regarding the most recent return to school planning update. Some highlights from that information are:


  • Lenox's Hybrid start time will be 7:45am and our end time will be 12:00pm. This will obviously create some changes in the live session schedule for our CDL students. More info to come.
  • Students in grades PreK-2 will attend school in person on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Whether or not they will attend school in person on Wednesdays is still being determined. We will have a final decision on that by our March 17 update.
  • Students in grades 3-6 will attend school on Mondays and Thursdays if their last name begins with A-L, and on Tuesdays and Fridays if their last name begins with M-Z. Wednesday will remain an asynchronous Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL) day, as it is now.

Warmest Regards,

Mrs. Gina McLain

Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten registration for the 2021-22 school year opens Monday, Mar. 1. Children must be five years old by Sep. 1, 2021, to enroll. Register at your “home” school* using the Enrollment Process as soon as possible. Doing so helps schools ensure they have the staff in place to welcome and support your child through a positive and rewarding experience. (*To confirm your assigned home school of attendance, please use the “Find my Home School” online tool or contact Transportation at 503-844-1123). There will be a virtual Kindergarten Orientation the week of May 3rd. More details coming soon. We also invite all families of incoming kindergartners to visit the Virtual Kindergarten Fair website, which features important school-specific and community partner information.
