Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

NEW PROCEDURES DUE TO WEATHER:

 

Dear LWES Families,

We wanted to make you aware of arrival and dismissal changes that will take place during the winter months during inclement weather times only.  We will send out messages when these patterns change to help with the safety of all of our students as they enter and exit the building.  We will revert back to normal procedures when it is safe to do so.   Here are the changes that will be effective tomorrow, Wednesday, January 5th and for the remainder of this week:

Arrival

  • ALL Students will line up in the front of the building. 

    • RECC, Kindergarten, First, and Second graders will be lining up in the front of the building near the main doors.  There will be cones with grades placed on them to help with the organization of students. 
    • PreK will be entering through the doors outside of Mrs. Green’s classroom.  (This is a change from last week!)
    • Third and Fourth graders will be lining up in the front of the building near the third and fourth grade classrooms. 
    • Fifth graders will line up on the sidewalk near the portable.  

Dismissal

  • ALL Students will be dismissed from the front of the building. 

    • RECC, Kindergarten, First, and Second graders will be exiting out the main doors and stand in the same lines as they entered.  Reminder to make a connection with your child’s teacher before taking your child, such as eye contact, toe taps, etc.)  

    • PreK will continue to exit outside of Mrs. Green’s classroom.  

    • Third and Fourth graders will be exiting out the third and fourth grade classrooms. 

    • Fifth graders will exit on the sidewalk near the portable.  

Thank you for your patience during these changes.  If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.  Hope you had a great break, and hope to see everyone tomorrow!

Sincerely,

LWES Administration
