Parking Lot Safety Issue: This is the third time this information has been included in the Lawrence Labrador Lowdown. We had another very close call on Wednesday. Two pedestrians were almost hit walking through the parking lot. Please use the painted yellow walkway when you park in the “vistor” spots or on the street. Crossing the parking lot through the valet line is extremely dangerous and not permitted. As cars are entering the parking lot, or backing out of spaces, they do not always see pedestrians who are randomly crossing. Thanks in advance for your help with this matter. We need to prevent a tragedy from happening in our parking lot.

Fall Conference Days: Students will be released at 1:30p.m. on October 9-10, 12-13, and 15-16 for Fall Conferences. October 11 and 14 are early release days for teacher collaboration. Please make sure to mark your calendar for two weeks of minimum days.

Injuries/Illnesses: Lawrence Elementary takes student wellbeing very seriously. When you notify the office of an injury/illness, please follow up with verbal or e-mail communication to your child’s teacher. This will allow you to make arrangements for necessary accommodations (i.e.: extended time on assignments, modified PE, etc.).

Child Welfare and Attendance News:

Hey, Lawrence Elementary! Guess what September is? It’s attendance awareness month. This is Cheryce Johnson and I am the Child Welfare and Attendance Specialist for Lawrence Elementary. I am so excited to tell you what we have planned to promote great attendance for the 2017/2018 school year. The Best, Year, Ever!

We will be having contests between classes and contests between schools. We will have prizes and parties.

Statistics show that student success starts with great attendance. It does not matter if absences are excused or unexcused, when students are not in class, they miss valuable instruction time and Every, Minute, Matters. We are asking families to work extra hard to get students to school on time, every day possible, and to try not to pick them up early unless absolutely necessary.

So, keep in mind, that for the 2017/2018 school year, Every Minute Matters and this will be the Best, Year, Ever!!
