Action Required -- Fall Re-enrollment Update
Dear LPS Families,
In recent years, LPS initiated an online process that replaces the traditional practice of sending “pink emergency cards” home for a parent's signature. The electronic completion of our Fall Enrollment Confirmation is an annual start-of-the-year requirement for each child currently enrolled in an LPS school. This must be completed for new and returning students.
Parents must access the electronic Fall Enrollment Confirmation through Parent Connect for the 2022-2023 school year. The Fall Enrollment Confirmation tab (in red, located in the upper right corner of screen) on Parent Connect has been activated and will allow parents/guardians to directly edit items such as emergency contact information and student health information. Other requirements include parental confirmations of items such as internet usage rules, medical authorization, and a student handbook review.
PLEASE USE A COMPUTER (NOT A CELL PHONE) TO COMPLETE THE FALL ENROLLMENT CONFIRMATION.
Please take a few moments before the school year begins to complete the confirmation. Although many will find the update process self-explanatory, the attachment provides step-by-step instructions.
William Green, Director of Elementary Programs
Kevin Etue, Director of Secondary Programs
Recent District Communication
The August edition of the district’s Dialog newsletter will NOT be mailed to households, due to continued supply shortages in the paper industry. The Dialog is posted on the front of the LPS website and is attached below. Please read through this important edition for back-to-school information.
DISTRICT CALENDAR UPDATE
The 2022-2023 District Calendar is posted on the district’s website, under the Our District tab and is attached below. Please note: There is a change for the October Professional Development Day. It is now October 3rd (previously published as October 5th). School-based calendars for events, etc. will be posted and distributed by your school(s).
FREE OR REDUCED PRICE MEALS
The universal free meals program has been discontinued by the federal government for this school year. If you think that your family may qualify for “free or reduced price meals,” please fill out the application that is linked HERE. By doing so now, you will be ready to go at the start of the school year. For more information, visit the LPS Food & Nutrition Services webpage HERE.
BUS REQUESTS DUE NOW!
If your student qualifies for bus service, please visit Parent Connect as soon as possible to request service. Go to the Transportation tab in Parent Connect for each of your students to make the request by clicking “yes” or “no.” We urge all families who have not already done so, to request as soon as possible, so all bus routes can be finalized.
FALL RE-ENROLLMENT CONFIRMATION
Last week, we sent an email to inform you that the “Fall Re-enrollment Update” needs to be completed by all families for each student before the school year begins. This replaces the traditional paper copy of the “pink emergency card” and it is critical that all information is updated. To access the Updates, log in to your Parent Connect account and click on the red text “Fall Re-Enrollment Confirmation.” Please update all sections in the portal. Thank you for your assistance. If you have trouble signing in to Parent Connect, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
CROSSING GUARDS NEEDED
Crossing guards needed! The Livonia Police Department and Westland Police Department are looking for crossing guards to assist LPS students at key intersections throughout the district. If you are interested, please contact the Livonia PD via email to email@example.com or Westland PD via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
BUS DRIVERS, ETC. NEEDED
LPS is hiring bus drivers, noon monitors, early childhood staff and more. If you are interested in working while your child is in school, please visit the LPS Careers page by clicking HERE.
Note: Wages have increased for bus drivers. Training rate is $16/hour and the regular hourly rates range from $19/hour to $24/hour.
