Message from the Principal

Dear Little Cedars Families,

I want to officially welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year! For those of you who are new to our school, I want you to know that you are coming to the wonderful community of Little Cedars Elementary School. I will be starting my 26th year in education and am so lucky to be a Wolverine. My goal is to ensure that all children are healthy, happy, and safe so that they may grow their brain each and every day. I look forward to continuing to build strong relationships with staff, students, families, and community members.

This is going to be a challenging Fall for me because I am going to have an empty nest. I have two beautiful children- Savanna (20) and Luke (18). Savanna will be a senior at Gonzaga and Luke will be a Freshman at the University of Oregon. Having no children will be difficult, but people often say that I treat each child in my school as my own. I believe that a school should function as a family and build a climate of trust and mutual respect.

Our teachers and staff at Little Cedars are caring, innovative, and always learning something new for the benefit of your children. We want to partner with each of you to ensure a productive and fun educational experience for your child(ren). As principal, my door is always open, and I welcome your input. I hope that you enjoy the remainder of your summer but are excited to come back to school! We look forward to seeing you for the Meet the Teacher on September 1st!

Anne Nielsen

Drop-off and Pick-up at LCE

PARKING LOT GUIDELINES: Parents are encouraged to allow their children to ride the buses, or form car-pools to reduce congestion in our school parking lot. However, if you must drive your child(ren) to school, we have designed procedures that make the parking lot a safe place for our students and families.

Before School Procedures:

1. Children may not be dropped off in any area other than the front of the school.

2. Please keep your child(ren) in the car until 8:00 a.m.

3. Continue pulling forward as the traffic flow permits. We now have two lanes within the parking lot to alleviate cars being backed up onto 144th PL. SE.

4. Merge into 1 lane to approach the front of the school.

5. As you enter our drop off zone, a Little Cedars staff member will be present to receive your child(ren).

6. We ask that your children exit the vehicle from the door nearest to the curb. Please remain in your vehicle while in the drop off zone and follow the instructions of our Little Cedars Staff.

7. Please wait until children are safely on the sidewalk before pulling away.

After School Procedures:.

1. Students are not allowed to approach or enter cars that are not in the pick-up zones in front of the school.

2. Continue pulling forward as traffic flow permits. We now have two lanes within the parking lot to alleviate additional cars being backed up onto 144th PL. SE.

3. Merge into 1 lane to approach the front of

the school.

4. Pull over to the curb as far forward as possible in the pick-up zone in front of the school. Double parking is not permitted. Please remain in your vehicle while in the pick-up zone and follow the instructions of the Little Cedars Staff member in charge.
