  • Welcome to Lake Roosevelt Schools 

    We are so excited for the upcoming year! We have some changes that we would like to inform you about. We know that change can be hard, but these changes are necessary to create a safe and positive learning environment for your child.

    • All students being dropped off or picked up please do so through the front door. We are asking that parents give your hugs at the front door and not escort your child to the classroom. If you have a special circumstance, please notify the office and we will work to assist you.


    • Parents picking up your child please wait at the covered area outside front door. Adults will be out front to monitor students until they are picked up.


    • Please do your best to make after school arrangements with your child in advance. While we understand that plans may change during the day, changes must be made before 2:30. We will not be making any changes after this time.


    • Birthdays and Special occasions. We will have special birthday celebrations once a month. Your child’s teacher will be sending more information regarding this. If you would like to bring treats on your child’s birthday you may do so at lunch time, they must be store bought, and may not contain nuts. If you choose to have deliveries made to your child, please remember that balloons and glass are not allowed on the school bus. Deliveries will not be made to your child until the end of the school day.


    • NUT FREE- We are seeing more and more students with severe allergies. Please be conscious about what you are putting in your child’s lunch and snacks. There is a designated table for lunches/snacks containing nuts.
