On Wednesday I asked the Lexington Police Department to come and watch our “Loop Line.” We have one parent who was acting inappropriately. I felt it was necessary to have the police observe what was going on.
One Hour Early Release
This Tuesday is first one-hour early release. That means that your child will run one hour early. If they are a pick up the loop line it starts at 2:15, if they get off the bus at 4:20 it will be 3:20 that day. Morning kindergarten stays on their regular schedule.
Please send in any of the Box Tops for Education that you have!! Last year our school made almost $1,000!
Parents please fill out and return your student’s emergency medical form to the office. We need to update all of the students’ records.
Parent Access to Progress Book
Letters for new students with passwords and usernames will be mailed the week of September 15th. Progress Book is an online program which allows parents to get on their students information to look up grades and attendance.
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.
This year we will only be sending out Interim Reports to students who are “failing” or any parent request who would like to request an interim. Interims go home on Friday, October 2nd. Please send the office a note if you would like to receive an interim.
Student football tickets are available in the office for $4 and adult tickets are $5, a savings from the $6 gate price. These are for HOME games only!
Please make a BIG sign with the student’s name on it that you would like to pick up. 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. When you are picking up your student please pull as far forward as you can. This enables us to load as many cars as possible. If there is a line of cars waiting on the road the police have already warned us that they can ticket you L So please pull into the Jr. High parking lot and then when there is space pull over to our driveway. 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.
