Happy New Year!

I hope everyone has enjoyed vacation. I wish you a Happy New Year! I am confident that 2013 will be an amazing year for the Lowell school community. I have a few updates and reminders for you this week.

Principal's Coffee

The next parent coffee will be for parents of students in grades 4 and 5.  It will be held in the Lowell lounge on Thursday, January 24th at 8:30 am.  Topics will include: curriculum, instruction, assessment, and much more!  Every grade will have a principal's coffee.  More information on the K-2 coffee events to come!

Security Reminders

  • All doors at the Lowell are locked at all times.  This now means that our PreK students will now enter with everyone else through the main entrance.  This also means, that students will not be able to wait in the vestibule (between the two sets of doors).  Main office doors will be open by staff at 8:05 and closed at 8:20 am.
  • Radios (walkie talkies) will accompany classes to recess.
  • Teachers will remind students to not let anyone into the building.
 When you come to the school:
  • Ring the buzzer at the main entrance. When you have been granted access, immediately report to the main office to sign in and receive a visitor badge.
  • Only enter and exit through the main office doors.
  • Respect that we are being vigilant about security.  You may have to wait to be buzzed in to the building and may be asked to show your identification.
  • If you are picking up your child from the nurse, remember to check in with the main office first and sign out when you are leaving.

Students may enter the building only at 8:05 am.  Please do not drop your student off early, unless they are attending one of our before school programs or having breakfast.  The weather is now not conducive to standing outside and students should not be left unsupervised. For more information about our before school program, please visit the Lowell Extended Day Program site.
