Welcome Back: On behalf of all the Lawrence Elementary Staff, we hope your son/daughter had a fabulous first week of school. The students did a wonderful job following directions and learning new routines and procedures. We enjoyed watching all the new friendships develop. We hope that you heard many heartwarming stories from your child.


Help Needed: We are searching high and low for Lawrence Elementary parents who are willing and able to supervise our valet and blacktop areas in the morning from 8:00-8:30a.m. Please contact the office for more details (i.e.: compensation) if you are able to help.


Parking: If you are escorting a first though fifth grade student to class in the morning, we kindly ask that you park in the parking lot. This will allow our TK/Kindergarten families the opportunity to park in front of the school (green curb) and walk their child to class. Thanks in advance for your help with this matter.


Morning Supervision: Students may arrive on campus at 8:15 a.m. The gate will not open until 8:15 a.m. due to supervision and safety concerns. If students are not with an adult, they must go to the blacktop/field area after dropping off their backpacks.


Dismissal: If you have a 1st – 3rd grade student who needs to wait for a sibling in 4th or 5th grade, they must head to the front of the school. All parties will unite there. Many students are wandering around campus unsupervised, which presents a safety issue.


New School Colors: We’re excited to start the process for determining Lawrence Elementary’s school colors. Please come to Back-to-School Night to learn more about our popular choices. Every family will have a chance to vote on their favorite colors during Back-to-School Night or via an electronic survey.


Lawrence Elementary Handbook: The school handbook is posted on our website at Please take a moment to review Lawrence Elementary policies and procedures.


Parent Volunteers: Lawrence Elementary takes pride in the fact that parent volunteers are a key component to the success of our school. All volunteers must report directly to the front office to sign in and obtain a visitor’s pass. Please visit to apply as a School Site Volunteer. We encourage all parents to become actively involved with the school.
