Hello LECC Tiger Cub Families!

I hope this email finds you well! Our Preschool Tiger Cubs did an amazing job during their first week of school. We are so proud of them for walking independently into the school building from the car or bus ready to learn and play! Our KG Tiger Cubs, who are working towards the master level of navigating our hallways, did a great job modeling walking under the green arrow to get to where they are going and not causing traffic jams!

Looking into next week, we do not have school on Monday, September 5, for the Labor Day holiday. In addition, we look forward to welcoming our Preschool Parents and Guardians into the PS classrooms next Wednesday evening (see information below) for our PIN Event here at LECC. Our PS teachers are excited to share all the wonderful things that make our LECC Preschool the BEST!

Please check out the rest of this week's Tiger Cub Talk for helpful information from our LECC Team! Enjoy your long weekend with your family and friends!

It is a great day to be a LECC Tiger Cub! Thank you!

Sara L. Gehring

LECC Tiger Cub Bus Riders

A trusted adult must be at the bus stop to welcome your child home at the end of his/her school day. This is meant to keep our Tiger Cubs safe. Our bus drivers are unable to leave a student without a trusted adult at the stop. When a trusted adult is not ready and present for bus drop-off, it impacts other students getting home in a timely manner. We appreciate your help with this need and being ready at your child's drop-off time and location every school day.

We are off to a great start with our car riders!

Just a few reminders:

  • Please have your students unbuckled and ready to exit the vehicle.
  • Students should have his/her backpack ready in lap.
  • All breakfast food and drink must stay in the vehicle.
  • If possible, please have students sitting on the passenger side of the vehicle ready for arrival.
  • Adults must remain inside the vehicle at all times. For safety purposes, we will take care of getting your child out of the car.
  • Cars must stay within the coned loop during arrival/drop off and not pull around cars in front of you.

As always, we appreciate everyone's cooperation with our Car Rider Procedures. The safety of our students and staff is our #1 priority.

We appreciate you sharing these friendly reminders with any trusted adult who is dropping off/picking up your child.

It's Lunchtime at LECC

Our Lunch Team works hard each day to provide meals to our students. This is a reminder to our families that lunch is no longer free to the District. Please add money to your child's account through your Tigerparent.me account or you can send a check in with your student and we can apply it to their account. Lunch money will roll over to the next year if it is not used at LECC.
