From the Principal

Families,
Thank you for an outstanding start to a great new school year! Things are beginning to settle down, and we are busy doing what Lugoff Elementary does best - educate children. As we continue to provide a safe and secure learning environment, we ask that you please assist us by doing the following things: 1) If your child has a change in transportation, please send a note or fax to school. We cannot rely on your child's word, and without the proper paperwork from you, your child will be sent home his/her normal way. 2) We respectively ask that all early dismissals take place prior to 2:00 PM. The office becomes a very busy place after 2:00 with phone calls and bodies, and we want to be able to provide everyone with the proper customer care. 3) If your child is a car rider, don't forget to leave your car rider tag on the dashboard or hanging from the rear view mirror until your child has been loaded. This helps up identify students with their correct transportation. We thank you for all that you do to support us, and remember, together we ARE a winning team.

Tardy Reminder

IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO ALL PARENTS AND GUARDIANS- in the Lugoff Elementary Student Code of Conduct, the Tardy policy states:  “When students are tardy, they interrupt class and may miss important explanations of work to be completed.  Remember, just being five minutes late for 5 school days is equal to 25 minutes of missed instruction.” Students who are not in their classrooms at 7:50 AM are tardy and must go to the office for a tardy note that will require a parent signature.  Parents must sign their child in at the office and sign their child’s attendance card.  More than 5 unexcused tardies (and/or dismissals) will be referred to the principal.

Attention Car Riders and Walkers

ATTENTION PARENTS!

We need your help. If your child is a car rider or walker, please use the cards that we have prepared for you so that we can be assured that the person picking up your child is authorized to do so.  Please do NOT rely upon a teacher or person on duty knowing you, as circumstances may change with the result being that the person on duty may not know you on a particular day. Effective on Monday, September 22, 2014, we will not release a student to anyone without a card in the car rider or walker line. Those without cards will be asked to go to the office and produce a photo ID so that we can verify that you have authorized this person to pick up your child. If you need new cards, a request form is available in the office. Thank you for your assistance in ensuring your child’s safety.
