Dear Parent(s) and Guardians(s):

 

Are you planning a family trip for the holidays? As you think about your arrangements, we want to stress the importance of sending your child to school every day possible. Every year, absences spike in the weeks before and after the winter holiday as families squeeze in a few more vacation days. It’s time to break that cycle. We know that just a few missed days here and there, even if they’re excused absences, can add up to too much lost learning time and put your child behind in school. This is as true in kindergarten as it is in high school. Simply put, too many absences at any age can affect a student’s chances for academic success and eventually for graduation.

 

We recognize that holidays are an important time for reconnecting with families far away. The costs of plane tickets often influence when you want to travel. But keep in mind the costs to your children’s education if they miss too much school— and the message you will be sending about the importance of attendance. Even if you’ve got a homework packet from the teacher, it doesn’t make up for the interaction and learning that happens in the classroom. Our teachers will be teaching, and our students will be learning, right up until vacation starts and the first day back. You can help us convey that message. This holiday season, give your children the gift of an education and the habit of attendance.

 

Sincerely,

 

      Kelly L. Ludden

      Principal

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.
