LES Green Team - Our school is a certified Green School and we make every attempt to do our part to conserve energy and recycle. The students learn about and participate in these efforts as well by collecting the recyle materials in the cafeteria and classrooms and turning off the lights whenever they leave a room. We have also cut back on the amount of copy paper we use by sending any correspondences home to parents via our emailing system. Please be sure the main office is notified of any changes to your email address and telephone number to ensure you don't miss out on important information and events.
SPECIAL CELEBRATION SUGGESTIONS: Please click here for detailed information.
VOLUNTEER APPLICATIONS: Anyone wishing to become a Registered Volunteer so that you can volunteer in the school, chaperone field trips, be a reading mentor, etc must complete the application on-line.

URGENT SAFETY REMINDER FOR PARENTS: This message is for any parent, guardian, sibling or daycare provider that bring students to school via vehicle. LES School Procedure states: Drop off for students begins at 8:50 and only when staff members are present outside on the sidewalk. The school day for students begins at 9:00 so any students dropped off after 9:00 will be considered tardy and the person driving the student to school will be required to park their vehicle and walk the student inside to the main office and sign them in. No students should ever be dropped off and sent in on their own without staff present. For more detailed Arrival & Dismissal information, please read the letter attached under Hot Topics - Parent Communications. Thank you all for adhering to this policy and understanding that the safety and security of our students and staff is of the utmost importance. Parent Transport Procedure
