Gompers News

8/24/16

Beginning August 26 after 5 pm, the new way of finding out your child's class assignment is by viewing it online in Parent Vue.  Therefore, if you have not done this, please make it a point to do so within the first few months of school.  If you need help please see Claudia after the first 2 weeks of school as she'll be really busy the first 10 days.

 

None the less, as of August 29 you can also come in with your ID to find out your child's class assignment but you'll need a little patience as we'll have to verify emergency card information.

 

Middle School students will receive their schedules in the class assigned to them on the first day of school.

 

Enjoy these last days of summer vacation and be safe.

Lakewood Deputy City Manager, Carol Flynn Jacoby reminds everyone of the Lakewood Municipal Code 3273 that forbids drivers from dropping off or picking up children (grades K-12) in any way that encourages them to jaywalk through traffic to get to or from school. 

 

Double parking or stopping at the curb and waving children through traffic are both infractions of the code and are punishable by a substantial fine.  The only safe way to drop off or pick up a child is at the curbside adjacent to the school or at a location near the school where the student can cross at a controlled intersection.  Attached is a copy of the ordinance.  Together, we can work to create a safe environment for our kids.

 

Please use the Valet Drop-off program that eliminates the need for drivers to get out of their vehicles and assist their passengers.  It provides a quick and efficient process for getting children into school safely.  This program provides a more controlled environment for dropping off children, resulting in increased confidence for both drivers and pedestrians.
