WOW!!

     The beginning of the school year is off to a wonderful start.  Finally, the students are back and there is laughter and giggling in the hallways!  Thank you to all of the parents and grandparents who took time to come to orientation and made sure their student was prepared for school!  It helps so much when the kids feel good about coming to school. 

 

Awesome!

     Wow, does our school building look great!  Thank you to Mr. Ben and Mr. Carl who worked so hard all summer long. 

 

Reminder

    You cannot send anyone to pick up your child without a note from you.  Even though they might be listed as an emergency contact we need a note from you that states it is ok.  Also, you might want to tell them to have a picture ID J

 

Notes for absences

     When students are absent, it is required for parents to call the school and then write a note the following day. The absent line is 419-884-2200.

 

Facebook

      We also have a Facebook page that we post information on, you can find it at:

Lexington Central Elementary School.

 

Attendance

     Please call if your student is not going to be at school 419-884-1308.

 

One hour early

      Our first one hour early release will be on Tuesday, Sept. 24th.  On this day your student will arrive home, or to their destination one hour earlier than they usually do.  

 

Loop Line

  • Loop line starts dismissing at 3:25
  • Make sure you have a sign in your window (we will provide signs for you)
  • Cars will start lining up at the white line painted on the ground in the loop line
  • Staff will dismiss students to the cars
  • Stay in your car, if you need to strap your child in, please wait until you see your child
  • Once the cars are loaded in the “loop”, the staff will signal to start the cars moving
  • The next loop of cars will proceed and line up
  • The students will not be loaded until all cars have come to a complete stop
  • If a student is not present, the car picking them up will be asked to pull forward and wait
  • DO NOT PASS cars in the loop line…be patient!
  • If the line is backed up on the road, pull into the junior high parking lot
  • Do not wait on the road (the police can ticket you)
  • Also, we can only release your student to you!! If you need someone other than a parent to pick up your student, please send a note to the office in the morning and make sure they have a picture ID with them
  • Also, please stay off of your cell phones when your car is moving.   Remember there are 450 students in the building, the bulk of them leave within 15 minutes of each other.  Please be considerate of others and the safety of the students comes first.

 

Parking

     Please do not park in the restricted spots in front of the school between 3-4pm.  This is when the busses start to load and you might get stuck in those spots.  If you need to walk in and get your child from school you can park at the Junior High or on Grange Street. (That is the little street that leads to the playground.)  Please do not park on the playground!  I know that pick up is a huge hassle but remember the safety of the kids come before convenience. 

 

Fees

            All fees are $30 per grade level.   One quarter of them need to be paid by November 1st.

 

Text Message Alerts

      The Lexington Local Schools has signed up for a free service called Ohio Alerts.  On Lexington’s main webpage ( lexington.k12.oh.us ) you can sign up to get texts to your phone or email.  You can sign up for just the school building or for the district for any updates such as 2 hour delay or snow days.

 

Signing Out Students

      If your child has an appointment during the day, please send a note to the teacher in the morning.  The teacher will then send the note to the office.  When you come to sign your child out, we will buzz the room and the child will meet you in the office.

 

Dropping Items Off

    During school hours if you are dropping something off for your child, please leave it in the office and we will make sure that it is delivered to your student.  This is to minimize disruptions in the classroom.

 

     In the event of an emergency and you need to reach me after hours my cell phone number is 419-565-8771.  Please do not call to see if we have school, use the radio, internet or television stations.  Thanks J

 

This year I am going to send newsletters out only once a month.  I will try to post more information on Facebook.

 

Volunteers!

     We are looking for a few good volunteers to help in the classrooms.  Many of our children need a little extra help or TLC.  If you or someone you know could spare a few hours a week to help around school please contact us 419-884-1308.
