Hello LECC Tiger Cub Families!

I hope this email finds you well! We welcomed the incoming Preschool Tiger Cubs at our Preview Event this past Wednesday. Our PS Tiger Cubs were able to drop off their supplies, explore the classroom, and meet the team of amazing educators that support our PS Program. In addition, we completed our first safety drill here at LECC with the assistance of the Loveland Fire Department on the afternoon of August 23rd. Our Tiger Cubs received many compliments for a speedy, safe exit from the firefighters. We will complete an additional required LFD-supported fire drill in the coming weeks.

Looking into next week, we cannot wait to greet our PS Tiger Cubs for their first week of school. As a reminder, we do have a staggered start for PS, just like K-12 grades. On Monday, August 29th, PS Tiger Cubs with the last name starting with A-L will attend their AM or PM cohort session only. On Tuesday, August 30th, PS Tiger Cubs with the last name starting with M-Z will attend their AM or PM cohort session only. Then on Wednesday, August 31st, all PS Tiger Cubs will join us for their AM or PM cohort session!

Like Kindergarten students, PS students will walk from the car rider line or bus area with LECC staff helping them navigate to their classrooms. We are unable to facilitate parents/guardians in the building to walk to the classroom with their student. This established routine helps our PS Tiger Cubs with the development of navigating our building and entering their amazing classroom ready to learn and play. We are excited to have our LECC campus complete with our PS and KG Tiger Cubs starting next week!

Please check out the rest of this week's Tiger Cub Talk for helpful information from our LECC Team! Enjoy your weekend! It is a great day to be a LECC Tiger Cub! Thank you!

LECC Tiger Cub Bus Riders

A trusted adult must be at the bus stop to welcome your child home at the end of his/her school day. This is meant to keep our Tiger Cubs safe. Our bus drivers are unable to leave a student without a trusted adult at the stop. When a trusted adult is not ready and present for bus drop-off, it impacts other students getting home in a timely manner. We appreciate your help with this need and being ready at your child's drop-off time and location every school day.

LECC Tiger Cub Car Riders Reminders

  • Please have your child ready to exit your car as you pull up to the designated drop-off zone in front of our building.
  • Students should have his/her backpack ready in lap. This helps with a smooth transition from car to staff member greeting your child into the building.
  • Adults dropping off LECC students must remain inside the vehicle at all times. For safety purposes, we will take care of getting your child out of the car.
  • Cars must stay within the coned loop during the arrival process and not pull around cars in front of you.
  • Display numbered vehicle tag on your mirror for our staff to radio into the building.
  • If you need a vehicle tag, please contact the front office for one.
  • Adults picking up an LECC student must remain inside the vehicle. For safety purposes, our staff will walk your child to the waiting vehicle and assist the child in opening the door.
  • Cars must stay within the coned loop during the dismissal process and not pull around cars in front of you.
  • If your child cannot buckle themselves into their car seats, please pull into a parking space and take your time fastening your child into the car correctly at the top of our parking lot.
  • We are unable to process early dismissals once our dismissal procedures have started at 10:40 am (half-day) and 2:40 pm. Please join the car line for your child to be dismissed to you.

We appreciate sharing these helpful reminders with any trusted adult who is dropping off/picking up your child at LECC. Thank you for your patience.
