Principal's Message

Dear Families,

We are looking forward to celebrating the end of the school year. We have wonderful events like our Cultural Fair and Field Day.

Please call or email the office if your student will not be returning to Ladd Acres next year. It helps us to plan for next year and to help with the transition to the new school.

In partnership,

Jennifer Robbins

Student Chromebooks

Students who are in grades 6, 8, and 12 must turn in their Chromebooks. The remainder of the students will return their Chromebook only if they do not wish to keep it over the summer, will not attend their school next fall, or need to have the device repaired.
