Many students enjoy riding their bikes to school. If this is something you are interested in doing regularly or from time to time, please complete the application for riding a bike to school, and review the list of safety rules and regulations. Forms are also available in the office.
However for their own safety, and per the district guidelines, only students in 4th and 5th grade may ride their bikes to and from school.
In the spring 3rd and 4th graders experience a two week biking unit. During this time they can bring their own bike (and lock) and helmet. If you have any additional questions please contact Mr. Sandbo
Students eat lunch in our commons. Your child can either bring a lunch from home or purchase a school lunch. Every child has a lunch account. Lunch menus, fees, and the ability to add money to your child's account is available online. You may also write a check for lunch money and send it to the office.
There are two parking lots and street parking available. The smaller one on the north side is mainly for staff. This is the parking lot where buses are loaded and unloaded. During these times it is blocked off, therefore it will probably be easier to park in the south lot.
The larger parking lot to the south is for general parking and car pick up. All car pick up students, for their safety, are gathered along the fence on the south end of the lot. As cars in line move through kids will be loaded into cars.
Student registration is available during the summer at the district’s Resource Center from July 10 until August 16. For the month of July, registration is open M/W/F from 7:30 a.m.–1:00 p.m., and T/TH from 11:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Beginning August 1, hours will be expanded to 7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday until August 16.
LWSD outlines the procedures for registering your child, and information that is required. Please note that the school offices are closed in the summer until mid-August.
In the Northwest weather can cause all kinds of problems. When an event does occur and school needs to be delayed or closed we will notify parents through School Messenger beginning at 6 a.m. on those days. The information will also be posted as a school alert on the home page of the school website, at www.flashalert.net, and on many local television or radio stations,
Volunteers are very important part of our school. If you would like to volunteer you will need to first fill out a volunteer application. You can either pick up an application in the office or fill one out online through the
