Senior Signing Day
Senior Signing Day is a special day for everyone in the LEAD network and especially for our seniors. This year’s event will feature The Class of 2019 who will be announcing their next path in life.
To celebrate we would like to invite you for breakfast at LEAD Academy on Thursday, May 16th, 2019 at 7:45 - 8:45 am. After breakfast, we will drive to Belmont University Curb Center to join our Seniors and the rest of our LEAD families in the celebration.
A postcard was mailed home; please RSVP by April 23rd to make sure we plan accordingly.
Breakfast even is ONLY for Senior Families.

Metro Emergency Alert and Notification System (MEANS)
MEANS is a new public safety program that enables Metro to let you know what safety actions to take when there’s a danger. When you register and provide your contact information, MEANS enables us to provide you with critical information quickly in a variety of situations, such as criminal activity and evacuations of buildings or neighborhoods. Get the alerts you want, the way you want – cell or landline phone call, text, email or TTY.
PRO TIP: When you register, please provide at least one street address. This can be your home address, or the address of a nearby grocery store, library or fire station. An address is not required, but it will ensure that the alerts you receive are focused on locations that matter to you -- places where you live, work and play.
