Veteran's Day

In honor of Veteran's Day, school will be closed on Thursday, November 11. We will see our Cheetah's back at school on Friday.


We are so excited to welcome volunteers onto campus, as you are valuable support for our educators and students! We will need to adhere to the following guidelines:
  • Volunteers must show proof of full vaccination.
  • Volunteers must be cleared through our District's online volunteer portal.
  • Once your application is cleared by our District's Human Resources Department, there is a mandatory 14-day waiting period for the LPD to process volunteer names. Volunteers cannot participate in school activities until their clearance date.
  • Classroom volunteers are limited to a maximum of 2 in a classroom at any given time.
  • Masks are required.

At the site level, there are additional steps that need to be taken.
  1. Once you complete the online volunteer portal our office will review your forms and send them to the Human Resources Department.
  2. Bring proof of a negative TB test and your COVID-19 Vaccination Record to the office staff.
  3. Teachers need to create volunteer sign-ups.
  4. Read and agree to the guidelines from our District's Volunteer Handbook

Keep in mind that not all teachers need the extra support in their classrooms and those that do will have specific times when the help will be needed. The classroom teachers will communicate this information to you. Please be patient as the teachers work on their schedules.

Bell Schedule

Attendance is taken in the classrooms by 8:45 a.m and students arriving to the classroom after 8:30 a.m. are tardy. Please make every effort to arrive on campus by 8:27 a.m. which will allow your child enough time to get to the classroom before the final bell.

Water Bottles

Students are highly encouraged to bring their own reusable water bottle to school. There are 2 hydration stations available on campus; one near the MPR and the other near the restrooms. While small dixie cups are available to our students, they often require more water than the small cup will hold. This leads to frequent disruptions in class, as well as many opportunities for spilled water.

Universal Free Lunch

The following information has been taken from the website.

"Our Child Nutrition Department is excited to share that all students, regardless of family income, can receive a daily school lunch free of charge for all instructional days in the 2021-22 school year! While a free and reduced lunch application does not apply this year, completing the Alternate Income Form can result in students qualifying for additional benefits such as Pandemic EBT, scholarships for placement exams, and discounted internet service."
