Snow Day Make Up Information
The first inclement weather day of the school year, Monday, December 16, will be made up on the district's Designated Inclement Weather Make-up Day, which is Friday, April 17.
If a second inclement weather day is needed, the state will "forgive" the second day, meaning it would not need to be made up.

Deerfield Behavior Expectations
Lawrence Public Schools, in partnership with the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department and the Lawrence-Douglas County MPO is working on an updated citywide Safe Routes to school plan for Lawrence. Parent input is needed to weigh in on the Safe Routes to School plan and provide feedback that helps us prioritize programs that will ultimately improve student travel to school. We need parent input even if their kids do not currently walk or bike to school. This feedback will inform the policies for the City of Lawrence and help shape the vision of our city and the future of the Lawrence Safe Routes to School Program. It is vitally important for parents to provide their input. Visit this link to fill out the online worksheet packet. Your school’s feedback is due by January 22, 2020. We have paper copies available at the office.

REPEATS and REMINDERS
Building Secure 8:00 am-6:00 pm
Deerfield entrances are locked at 8:00 (or very soon after). We must insist that all parents exit the building immediately when class begins at 8:00 am.
As a reminder, parents are welcome to walk students to class only if arriving before 8:00 am. Once the building is secured at 8:00, students will need to be dropped off at the office to get a tardy slip before walking to class. Parents will not be allowed to walk students to class after the 8:00 bell rings.
Those who have made arrangements with the teacher to visit or volunteer need to sign-in at the office and wear a Deerfield Visitor badge.
It's Getting Cold... School Doors Unlock at 7:35am
We must insist that your children not come to school before 7:35am. Doors are locked until this time. Students will not be allowed into the building because staff are not on duty to supervise. Thank you for your cooperation!
ITS GETTING COLD........
There are a few students arriving to school before 7:35. Students are not allowed inside the building until 7:35. We must insist that your children not come to school until that time as there is not staff on duty to supervise and students will no be allowed inside the building. Thank you for your cooperation!
Students must also be picked up by 3:00 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. They must be picked up by 1:35 on Wednesday. There is NO supervision for your child after school is dismissed unless enrolled in Boys and Girls Club.
