LPS Elementary Campus

May 15th

Mark your Calendars - Important Information and Dates

Friday, May 22nd = bad weather day, so no school

Monday, May 25th = Memorial day, so no school


Then because we need to give out end of the year materials (report cards, yearbooks, materials, etc.) as well as collect all the Chromebooks, we have scheduled pick-up/return times. I will give more specific information as the dates approach and even film a video to help explain, but I wanted you to mark your calendars now. We have coordinated with secondary and will use the regular carpool flow to try to make it as easy as possible.


Thursday, May 28th = Kindergarten Pick-up/Return

5-6pm = Mrs. Roberts and Mrs. Cross's classes

6-7pm = Mrs. Requilman and Mrs. Probst-Taylor's classes

Chromebook Issues or Request?

If you have any need for Tech support for the chrome books that have been provided or if you now need a chrome book, please contact your student's teacher. For a repair, the teacher will need:


  • student name
  • Chrome Book Cart and device number, AKA Secondary Cart 6-2.19 (which is on a sticker on the back of the checked out Chromebook)
  • what the issue is with the device, and
  • what type of charger the it has (USB-C, ASUS, or HP BlueTip).


The teacher can then request that a new Chromebook is available for check out. Chromebook pick up will be on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 11:00-12:00 weekly at the SECONDARY CAMPUS OFFICE. It will only be available once the request is put in by the teacher. Please do not just show up to campus.

Ascender - Parent Portal

A letter explaining how to log in to our new parent portal called ASCENDER was mailed out in the 4th nine weeks progress reports. In this system, you can check the data you have on file with LPS including addresses, vaccinations, etc.; and where you can check on attendance and grades (grades for 2-4 only).


If you have already created a parent portal account with us, then you should just have to use the new link but your username and password will be the same.


If you have never created a parent portal account with us, then please go to the link and create an account. Then you will use the portal ID from the letter to link your student to that account. Note: each student has a unique portal ID in their letter.


New ASCENDER link: https://txeis21.esc11.net:8443/ParentPortal/login?distid=061804 (this can also be found on the Parent page of the LPS website any time)

Formal Virtual Learning Plan

So we wanted to put our grading guidelines for the 4th nine weeks in writing for you so there will be no confusion. You can read the entire document here, but here are the biggest highlights:



  • All grades will be weighted with the weights previously used by teachers throughout the year.

  • In grades K-1, teachers will continue to use the skills checklist to assess student progress.

  • In grades 2-4, teachers will record at least 1 grade per week for each subject area for a total of at least 9 grades. Students will have the opportunity to redo two of their lowest grades.

  • Content grades in specials will be an E for all students.

  • Conduct grades will be an E for all students unless there is documentation of behavior issues in the online lessons.
