Dear LP Families,

Happy Friday and snow day!

My husband and I were talking and remembering what snow days were like when we were kids. We were laughing because today we have email, talkingpoints, robocalls, and social media to get the message out. Back then, you had to get up and glue yourself to the TV as you watched the names of school districts scroll on the bottom of the screen. We went to West Irondequoit schools so to wait until the 'Ws' was painful! Nonetheless, the joy we felt on those rare snow days as kids was awesome. Maybe as adults, not so much! :) I do hope the kids are enjoying their "extra" day.

We had another great week which included our World Read Aloud Day. I posted some extra pictures below but it doesn't quite capture how inspiring our guests were. We continue to celebrate black history, are gearing up for the science fair, have a fun PTA sponsored dance approaching, and new PBIS initiatives starting. The LP staff never ceases to amaze me with their hard work and determination to make this a great school year. We are blessed.

Enjoy your weekend,

Dr. Bello

ps: There will be a Free COVID Test Kit drive-thru for families with children attending East Irondequoit Schools on Saturday, February 5th from 9-11am at Laurelton-Pardee and Durand Eastman Schools. Stop by the drive thru to pick up 1 test kit per student in your household.

A Note from Ms. McAllister!

Our 5th graders are continuing to receive lessons in the classrooms that are informational and useful. In October, the topic was Bullying. During the month of November, we discussed Personal Hygiene. Last month, we talked about College and Careers. During the month of January, their lessons will be on the topic of Smoking and Vaping. Feel free to review the information below. We encourage you to have discussions with your 5th grader about healthy habits!

Have a great weekend!

Ms. McAllister/School Counselor

Report Card Update:

Dear Parents,

Our district hopes this letter finds your families happy and healthy. Enclosed you will find a paper copy of your child’s report card. You will also receive a paper copy of the report card in March. However, for the final report card in June, we will not be sending a paper copy. At that time, we will ask that you access your child’s report card through the parent portal in Infinite Campus. You will need a parent portal account to do this. Below are the directions on how to create a parent portal account. If you already have a parent portal account, you can access the report card now in the portal.

We felt it was important to communicate this now, so we have time to support you in this transition. We will resend these directions in March and principals will continue to share this information in their building communications. In June, if you need a paper copy, we will most certainly respond to this request. We will send more details as that final marking period comes to a close.

Please let us know if you have any questions.


Terri Robson

Parent Portal Instructions:

In order to create a parent portal account, you will need to have an email address on file with the district before you begin. If you do not already have an email address on file with the district you will need to call the main office of your student's school from a phone number associated with you and your student in order for them to update your information. If you have neither an email address nor phone number on file with the district, you will need to visit your student's main office in person.

  1. Visit, click on the Infinite Campus link, select Campus Parent and click the "Click here to request a parent portal activation key" link on the Campus Parent homepage. You may also choose to go directly to the URL below.
  2. Enter the email address that you provided to the district in the box and click the "Submit" button.
  3. You will receive an email with your activation key.
  4. Click the "New User" link on the Campus Parent homepage (refer to step 1 if necessary).
  5. Enter your activation key in the box and click the "Submit" button.

  1. Enter your desired username, password, confirm your password and click the "Submit" button.

*iPad Protection* Please Read!

Dear LP Families,

First and most important, I hope this letter finds you well! I am reaching out to any families who have not yet filled out a Device Protection Plan or paid the $25 protection plan fee for your child’s iPad. Here are some frequently asked questions we have received about this plan:

Why would I need a Device Protection Plan?

Every student at Laurelton-Pardee is given an iPad to use for instruction at school, as well as at home. While this is a benefit for our students, the downside is accidents do happen and iPads are sometimes damaged or even lost. If this happens, and you do not have a Device Protection Plan, you could pay upwards of $300 for a damaged iPad and over $400 for a lost iPad! If you pay the $25 protection plan, these charges are significantly reduced. Please see the Program fee/Coverage section on the next page for more information!

How do I sign up for a Device Protection Plan?

Simply fill out the second page and return to the main office with $25 cash or check. You can also do this all online at:

How often do I have to sign up for this?

You will need to fill out a form and submit $25 EVERY school year. The protection plan fee covers damage or replacement of the iPad for one school year.

Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions. We really want to help our families avoid these high charges if possible and highly encourage you to take advantage of this protection plan.

Thank you,

Dr. Bello (Principal)
