Back-to-School Information

It's hard to believe August is already here - but exciting to know that the beginning of school is just around the corner! Although school will look different, we are happy to return to school virtually (for now). We will resume our weekly Falcon News so we can provide you with the most up-to-date back to school information. As a start, below are some key upcoming dates:

August 7 @ 5:00 | LO Online Registration Deadline*

August 25 | Class placements finalized

September 2 - 4 | Meet & Greet, supply and device pick up*

September 8 | 1st Day of School (virtual for all students)

LO Online Registration Deadline - Today at 5:00 PM

Important Reminder: the deadline for signing up for LO Online is today Friday, August 7 by 5 p.m. Because the program has been extended for a full year, all interested students must reapply if you haven’t already done so since Wednesday, July 29. Student enrollment will determine the teachers selected to teach in the LO Online program for the year. Click here for the sign up form -- please submit one form for each student.

Students attending in Hybrid do not need to sign up.

Meet & Greet

Hybrid: Mark your calendars for September 2-4 for an in-person Meet & Greet at Forest Hills. Teachers will send out class communication and Meet & Greet sign up links the week of August 25. During your individually scheduled Meet & Greet time, students will meet their teacher, check out a device, pick up curriculum materials, and supplies. Details regarding Smart Start coming soon.

LO Online: More information coming soon.

School Supplies

If you ordered school supplies through 1st Day School Supplies, supplies will be ready for pick up at the Meet & Greet. If you have not ordered supplies, you can find the supply lists here: 2020-21 Supply Lists

Roadmap to Reopening

There is so much information! Check out the latest from LOSD about the coming school year: Roadmap to Reopening

Verify Your Student's Information for 20-21

Beginning May 1, LOSD needs parents/guardians of all students enrolled for the 2020-21 school year to log into ParentVUE and review/update your students' information through the Register/Verify tab. This benefits both families and schools by:

  • Ensuring that schools have accurate information to reach parents and other contacts in both emergency and non-emergency situations. Verification is important even if your contact information has not changed over the past year because the school may have incorrect information from a previous year.

  • Allowing parents to review the health conditions on file at your student's school.

  • Enabling distribution of electronic devices covered by the district's Technology Agreement

If you have forgotten your ParentVUE password, go to the login page, click "I am a Parent," then click "Forgot Password." If you are unsure whether you have a ParentVUE account, contact your student's school. For assistance with the verification process, refer to the user guide on the LOSD website or contact your student's school. Please note that verification is not part of the ParentVUE mobile app. However, a button in the app allows you to open verification in a web browser, or you can log into ParentVUE on a computer.
