We ask that all LPES parents and guests:
* Sign in to the building in the main office upon being buzzed in the front doors. Obtain a visitor's badge and only go to the location for which you signed in.
* Please sign out in the main office after your visit is over. Only exit the building utilizing the front doors.
* Please DO NOT hold the door to let anyone into the building - even if you know the person, we require that all visitors be buzzed in to LPES.
* Visitation of children during the school day is prohibited. Should a child require medicine, kindly contact our school nurse, Mrs. Cifelli. If your child is bringing in birthday treats or forgets a lunch, backpack, etc., kindly bring the items to the main office, and we will be sure your child gets the item(s).
When buzzing in, you may be asked to state your name, your child's name, and the purpose of your visit. Thank you for your help with maintaining our security and the security of your children.
Additionally, we ask that all LPES parents and guests follow our parking guidelines and procedures. Please note the following:
* Morning Drop-Off Procedures:
All cars will be directed to the back parking lot where a drop-off circle will form. Cars will drive to the back parking lot, FOLLOW THE ARROWS, and drive around IN ONE DROP-OFF LINE to the walker door (the door the children come out of in the afternoon where the blue crosswalk is). Once you pull up to the coned-off area, you will let your child(ren) out of the car. Remember it is "drop and go" - no getting out of the car to put the backpack on, give kisses, walk them to the door, etc. - and your child(ren) will walk to the door. Our morning duty teachers who have stood at the front door will now be standing at the back door to let in the children. Teachers and other staff members will be on duty in the hallways to help the children with the new system.
PRESCHOOL PARENTS - You will not be a part of the drop-off line. You will park in any available parking spots and walk your child(ren) to the back door by the cafeteria (the little path that is between the school and the storage sheds), where Mrs. Brown will get the children and walk them to class at 9:00 a.m. Please note that this is for morning preschool only. Afternoon preschool will continue as is.
PARENTS WHO NEED TO COME IN TO THE SCHOOL - You also will not be a part of the drop-off line. Please park in any available parking spot and walk to the front of the school, where you will ring the doorbell to enter the building.
STUDENTS WHO ARRIVE LATE TO SCHOOL (after 9 a.m.) - Parents, please park in an available parking spot and walk your child(ren) to the front door and then into the main office to check in.
As usual, we encourage those students who have bus passes to come to school and go home from school via the buses.
* Afternoon Pick-Up Procedures:
All walkers/pick-up students will be dismissed from the door located in the fourth grade wing (the wing behind the media center). If you are picking up your child, you are asked to park in a marked parking space in the back parking lot (PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO ALL DIRECTIONAL ARROWS) and wait for your child on the macadam outside of the fourth grade wing. No cars will be allowed to park along the yellow curbs leading to the back parking lot or in the back parking lot. Students will only be dismissed out of the fourth grade door when a parent/guardian is present. All bus students will exit out the main front door.
