Safety is our first priority.

At dismissal time, please park in a designated spot and meet your child at their grade level exit.

IMPORTANT! Have you RE-Enrolled your student yet?

In recent years, LPS initiated an online process that replaces the traditional practice of sending “pink emergency cards” home for a parent's signature. The electronic completion of our Fall Enrollment Confirmation is an annual start-of-the-year requirement for each child currently enrolled in an LPS school. This must be completed for new and returning students.

Parents must access the electronic Fall Enrollment Confirmation through Parent Connect for the 2023-2024 school year. The Fall Enrollment Confirmation tab (in red, located in the upper right corner of screen) on Parent Connect has been activated and will allow parents/guardians to directly edit items such as emergency contact information and student health information. Other requirements include parental confirmations of items such as internet usage rules, medical authorization, and a student handbook review.

PLEASE USE A COMPUTER (NOT A CELL PHONE) TO COMPLETE THE FALL ENROLLMENT CONFIRMATION. Please take a few moments before the school year begins to complete the confirmation.

Lunch and Breakfast Program

Breakfast will be available every morning, and school lunch is available every full school day. School lunch will be free for all students again this year. Free and reduced meal application forms must be completed online this year (Click Here). All family members should be listed on one form. Even with the offering of Michigan Meals, a new application must be filled out every school year. If you need help with the process of applying for free and reduced lunch, please call the office and someone will assist you. Qualification benefits families and our school district.

Elementary HANDBOOK

The Elementary Handbook can be found by visiting our website, under Quick Links. This handbook covers all the rules and procedures including the district code of conduct. Please review this handbook and use it for reference throughout the school year. If you are unable to view this document online, please let our office know and we can send a copy home.

Blessings in a Backpack is back!

Dear Parent,

Blessings in a Backpack-Livonia is an all-volunteer program designed to provide students who are in need, with enough food for three meals a day during the weekends. If you participate in this program, your child will receive a bag at the end of every week of school (Thursday or Friday), filled with non-perishable food for the weekend. There is no cost to you for participating in this program. No further information is required. Your information will not be shared. If you would like to have your child participate in this program, fill out and submit the form using the link below as soon as possible. We are requesting your name and email address, so that a confirmation of registration will be emailed to you. Delivery will begin the week of September 13th.

If your child participated in the program last year we DO need a new enrollment form for this school year.

Currently, we are providing prepackaged bags so we are unable to customize for allergies or religious dietary needs. We apologize for any inconvenience.

****You will need to complete a separate form for each child that you wish to enroll.****

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to email us at
