Welcome back & orientation reminders for 2016-17

This is the text of the School Messenger robocall and email that just went out to all L&N families and staff:

We're excited to welcome you to the L&N for school year 2016-17!!  The information included here will also be delivered by phone, on our web site (after 8:00 p.m.), on Twitter, and Facebook pages.
This is just to be sure you are aware that we are participating in the countywide orientation for new students this Friday, August 5, from 9:30 - 1:00.  This is the chance for students new to the school to try out the bus routes (can be found here, click on "STEM" routes), see their schedules, meet classmates, and meet teachers without the whole student population in the school.  The building will be open at 7:30 for those who need to wait.  The cafeteria will not be open, but PTSA has provided snacks and water that will be distributed mid-morning to all students.  We dismiss at 1:00.  Students may ride buses at that time or parents can pick up - be sure to visit our web site to see the traffic pattern diagram for student pick up.  

On Monday, August 8, ALL students have their first half-day of school, from 9:30 - 1:00.  Students will pick up schedules and then meet all 8 classes over the course of the morning.  The building will be open at 7:30 for those who need to wait and the cafeteria will have cold breakfast items (cereal, milk, fruit, etc.) available for purchase from 8:15 - 9:25.  The PTSA has provided snacks and water for all students that will be distributed mid-morning.  We dismiss at 1:00.

All parents and students are invited back to our Back to School Bash from 5:30 - 8:00 p.m. Monday night.  You can find out about all our clubs, sports, and school activities.  Meet staff, participate in technology pick-up if you signed up for it already.  Pay fees with one check (on this night and Open House, August 16, only), and attend a mandatory 15-minute introduction to blended classes required of parents and students who have a Blended Instruction section on their schedule this year.  The Introduction to Blended Classes will be repeated twice each hour and again on the Open House night, Aug. 16.

Time is running out if you have not yet "opted in" to continue to receive School Messenger notifications!  Call the school office if you have questions about doing this.  See everyone Friday or Monday!
