Lions Park Paw Prints

Letter from the Principal

Dear Lions Park Families,

I hope you and your children enjoyed the long weekend! This was a short but busy week of learning at Lions Park.

We have noticed that some students are starting to arrive at school before 8:35 even when they are not enrolled in Kids Corner or other activities. Because we don't have any adult supervision before 8:35, students should not be dropped off before that or arrive earlier than that if walking or riding bikes. We appreciate your cooperation.

We look forward to celebrating Halloween at school on October 31st. Students may wear costumes to school in the afternoon only. Students may bring their costume to school in a bag. Some families also like to pick their children up for lunch that day from 11:50-12:50 to feed them and help them get into their costume. I will send a form in the Paw Prints next week to complete if you plan to bring your child(ren) home for lunch.

We will have an outdoor parade (weather permitting) at 1:15pm. All families are welcome to attend. In case of inclement weather, families will not be able to attend. Whether we have the parade or not, we will have classroom parties from 2-3 pm that will be attended only by scheduled volunteers. Please help your child make safe and respectful decisions about their costumes. Students may wear an appropriate mask in the parade, but not during school. Make-up, weapons, fake blood, or inappropriate dress are not allowed. All costume accessories will be left in the classroom for recess and lunch. Students may not bring food or candy to share.

On Wednesday, I sent an email about signing up for parent and teacher conferences on November 1st, 7th or 17th. Please go to the Online Conference Sign Up Link to select your time. Most conferences will be in person, but we will have Zoom conferences available at select times on the afternoon of November 1st.
