Just a friendly reminder that there will be no school Monday, September 4th, in observance of Labor Day. The school will be closed.
Enjoy your holiday and we will see you Tuesday morning!
In honor of Grandparents Day on September 10th, LES grandparents may join their grandchildren for breakfast or lunch Friday, September 8th.
Grandparents may choose to visit during breakfast or lunch and eat a cafeteria-provided meal at cost (breakfast $2.35/ lunch $3.85) or bring a lunch from outside the school.
Information and RSVP/Order forms will be going home with students Tuesday and are due back Thursday.
We hope to see many of our grandparents on campus Friday!
Reminder: If your student is interested in information about joining a local boy scout den, there is an informational meeting and sign up tonight at LES in the cafe, starting at 6:00pm Scouting is a great way to meet friends, build character and learn useful life skills!
You may access our parent newsletter at Sept 2017 Newsletter.
If you are not receiving parent emails every Tuesday, please check with your student’s teacher to make sure that we have a correct email on file for you. These parent emails contain important information, updates and events that you won’t want to miss!
Changes to LES this year:
We want to welcome our new Assistant Principal, Mrs. Michelle Zee. Mrs. Zee will be working with our 3rd-5th grades. Mrs. Prezzy will work with our 5K-2nd grades.
Afternoon am/pm pick up: Safety for our students is always a primary concern at LES. Therefore, we will no longer allow parents or guardians to park and “walk-up” to take custody of their children from the dismissal line. We encourage parents to remain in their vehicle and drive through the car line to pick up their child. This change is for both the front and back car lines. No more walk-ups.
Attendance: The SC State Department of Education has developed new guidelines regarding attendance for elementary school students. Students must be present for 50% of the school day to be counted present. If a student arrives late and/or is dismissed early, they may accrue enough minutes to receive credit for a full school day. For example, a full school day is 405 minutes…to receive credit for a full day of school a student must attend 203 minutes of that school day.
Please refer to the Student Handbook for District guidelines and school policies.
Procedures for handling charged meals in elementary and secondary schools are developed for the purpose of dealing with this situation on a consistent basis so the student “customer” will not be embarrassed or humiliated. “Charged meals” are defined as meals which cannot be properly accounted for because the student has no money. Students may charge up to $10.00 in meals. Notification through School Messenger will be used to notify parents of account balances with less than $10.00 weekly. Any child on paid or reduced status with a negative $10.00 balance will be served an alternate meal until the balance is paid in full unless arrangements have been made with the school principal and/or food service manager to make installment payments. Students on free meal status with a negative balance always receive a regular meal. All students with a negative balance cannot buy anything extra (a la carte items). Adults are encouraged to deposit money into their accounts. Adults may not charge more than $10.00.
Students that are NEW to Lexington Elementary are invited to attend a New Student Orientation this Sunday at 1:30pm.
