There have been many questions asked by families and the community as we plan this new school. While some do not have answers yet, we are answering as many as we can! Here are the questions asked and answered so far.
Will you have safety patrol set up before school starts?
Yes, we will be setting up our safety patrol before school starts so that we are ready to go on the first day of school. Applications will be coming out in the spring to sign up. In order to be on safety patrol, you must be at least 10 years old. Once we have the applications, we will be setting up a training prior to the first day of school.
What is the criteria for buses from home to school?
The district provides transportation only to those students living outside a one-mile radius, unless the district has reviewed walk routes and determined no safe walk route is available. Within that boundary, our practice allows for elementary students to walk up to one and a half miles to school. Students with walk distances that exceed these limits are eligible for bus service.
What is the school's capacity?
Our new school will have 30 classrooms for a total capacity of 690 students.
How do I register my student who isn't already enrolled in a LWSD school?
Kindergarten Registration begins on February 7th from 3:30-7:00 p.m. at Rosa Parks.
Registering for new students in any grade: Please go to your local elementary school to register your student. Any local LWSD school registrar will be able to help with paperwork and get your students enrolled at the new school. Please do this as soon as possible because enrollment numbers impact staffing.
To register, you will need to bring a few items. You will need to bring your child's birth certificate or passport, proof of residency (such as an energy bill with your current address, lease agreement, or mortgage statement), and records of immunizations. For more detailed information, check out the LWSD website: https://www.lwsd.org/students-families/registratio...
How do I sign up to receive updates about the school?
If you are in the attendance area for our school and are not already receiving emails from Principal Bilanko, please email email@example.com to receive the school newsletter.
Who are the 2nd Grade teachers?
Now that the school boundaries are set, we are in the process of selecting the remainder of our staff which will include 2nd grade teachers. We will announce staffing as we hire! Look for introduction videos!
