Greetings Laburnum Families,

We were excited to see our Laburnum Lions back in the building this past week. They were ready to learn and didn't skip a beat with what they needed to do in the classroom. There are only nine more weeks left of school and we want our students to keep that same energy until the end.

As a reminder, school starts each day at 8:00. Students arriving after 8:00 will be marked tardy. If your student is arriving early, you must walk your student to the door to be checked in by our office staff. Also, please remember to send your child to school with a mask each day.

Continue reading for important reminders and updates.
