Principal's Corner

Dear Parents,

            As the summer draws to a close, the first day of school is quickly approaching.  To better assist you with “first day of school” preparations, enclosed you will find a copy of the school supply lists for each grade level.  

            We have a new student registration on August 4th from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.  This is for any student that did not attend Lone Dell Elementary last year.  You will need to bring birth certificate, shot records, and proof of residency for Lone Dell attendance boundary.  We will not be able to put a child on a class list until we have all registration info required.  If you have any questions, please contact us at 282-1470.

Open house will be held on Tuesday August 18th.  Kindergarten students and parents will meet in the cafeteria at 5:30 and then go to your classrooms.  Below is a schedule of class meetings for each grade level.  We encourage you to attend your child’s class meeting.  This is an opportunity for each teacher to give an overview of their class as well as, a question and answer time.

 Our parking lot is repaired but not any bigger so remember-parking is always very difficult when we have an all school function so bring your patience!  Please feel free to park on our back parking lot, it is wide open!  We hope to see everyone at Open House and look forward to an exciting new school year!
