LSG Family Safety Reminder
Please remember that our school opens for students to enter at 8:15am for breakfast. For your child's safety please DO NOT drop them off at the front of the school any earlier than 8:15am. We want to make sure they are safe and we offer the YMCA child care if this time does not work for your family. School personnel are only on duty starting at 8:15am.
Thank you for your attention to this in helping us keep your child safe!

Hello Wildcat Families,
Welcome to a new school year. We are excited to see all our returning students along with our new friends. We have had a few changes over the summer. First grade teacher, Mrs. Deserio retired after 50 years of teaching! We are so thankful for her years of service to children. We also had 2 teachers move from our area. Fifth grade teacher, Ms. Cubbage moved to Washington state and first grade teacher, Mrs. Herbolsheimer moved to the other coast of Florida. All will be greatly missed.
Those moves prompted changes in grade level teachers. For this reason, we are having two Meet and Greet days before school starts. The Intermediate Meet and Greet is Friday, August 9th for grades 3-5. The hours are 1-3. The Primary Meet and Greet is Monday August 12th for grades Prk-2nd and ASD from 1:00-3:00. You will be able to pick up first day packets and supply lists. If you attend Meet and Greet, you will not need to attend Open House if it is not convenient. However, you are always welcome.
The hours for all elementary schools in our district changed this year. The new hours are 8:45-2:55. The start time is the same but the students are in class for 10 more minutes. With the time change and some safety concerns, we are implementing a new rule. Unless you have an emergency, you will not be able to pick up your children or call in altering their dismissal plans after 2:15. We have 700+ students. We cannot guarantee that your child will get the message between 2:15-2:55. We also cannot disrupt other student learning by calling into the classrooms numerous times. Education is important to us. We can do some other fun activities that other schools have stopped because we maximize student learning during the school day.
One last reminder, remember the car circle starts off congested and frustrating but gets better within 10 days. We had merge lanes repainted. ALL cars stay in the car line. All drivers and passengers must stay in their car. Kindergarten parents stay in your car and in line driving down to the kindergarten pod entrance. Teachers are out there with them until they are picked up. The only exception is our students with special needs. We have a few friends who are dismissed before our actual 2:55 bell. Those parents are allowed to drive in the outside lane and “cut” in front of the kindergarten area. Most of the time they will be gone before the dismissal bell rings. Sometimes students are challenging to transition. Please be patient. These families are not cutting in front of you, they have permission and it is for safety purposes. If you would like to park in a parking space and walk to the flag pole and meet your child you may do that as well. Children are NOT allowed to walk across our car circle crosswalk without you.
Class lists will not be posted on the windows this year for security purposes. To access the information, go to Parent Portal on August 5th and it should be there. Please remember, class lists are temporary until the 10th day of school.
We are looking forward to a fantastic year at Lake St. George. Please follow us on Facebook. Our Assistant Principal, Stephanie Whitaker will send a link via email and you can find a link on our webpage.
Sincerely, Monika Wolcott,
Principal, Lake St. George
