    Lewiston Elementary Families,

    We are working hard and are excited for the beginning of a new school year.   We look forward to a return to our “regular” schedule and a more “normal” school year. Time for a RESET.   So here we go.  Currently, students, teachers, staff and visitors will NOT be required to to wear a mask [or other face covering] but we welcome anyone who would like to continue to wear a mask to do so.  As always, please keep your child home from school when they are ill--even if it's not COVID related.   This helps protect others from illnesses spreading through the school. We will continue to do our part to increase our school sanitation and disinfection efforts to create a safe environment for all. Throughout the year we will monitor health concerns and make the recommended adjustments to keep everyone safe and healthy.   We appreciate your cooperation as we learn together.  

    If your child is NOT returning to Lewiston for whatever reason, please call the school as soon as possible.  We need to update class lists to allow teachers time to plan for their classrooms.   We will be planning for you unless we hear from you. The  District will NOT be providing a K-6 Online program this year.  So, just a reminder that if you are choosing to homeschool your student(s) this year you will need to complete a homeschool affidavit and bring a notarized copy to the District office.  Here is the link to the form and important information: Student Services / Home School  Please call and let us know here at the school, as well.

    Back to School Night will be an in-person Meet your Teacher Open House -  Yahoo!  On Wednesday, August 18th any time from 4:30-6:30 bring your student(s) to the school to find their classroom and meet their teacher.  Then you can head home and finish getting ready for the First day of school.  We will be here ready and waiting for you.  We will be holding a separate Parent Night on September 2nd from 6:30-7:30pm for parents to come meet with the teachers to learn more about helping their students this school year.  

    Our School hours this year return to 9:05 to 3:35pm on Monday - Thursday with an early out on Friday from 9:05 to 2:20pm.  Please Come on time and be ready to learn! 

    • Grades 1st - 6th begin school on Thursday, August 19th

    PTA will be sending home information along with order forms for purchasing School Spirit T-shirts and Sweatshirts. Don’t miss your opportunity.   They only sell these at the beginning of the year.  Watch for this and more information from our amazing PTA!

     

    The Bus routes will not be finalized until the week before school starts.  You can double-check your route/stop here:  Transportation / Transportation (New)  Please remind your students that Lewiston Leopards are safe, kind, and responsible on the bus! This is an important service for our students and drivers have a big responsibility.  

     

     All Personal vehicles bringing students should wait in line along 200 east to pull up curbside in front of the school before dropping off or picking up students.  This line moves quickly, please be patient.  Do NOT have students cross the street or in front of cars to access the school.

    We appreciate your trust in our faculty and staff. We do not take this lightly. Lewiston is an amazing school community. To keep all of our students, faculty, and staff healthy and safe, we ask for your help.  Feel free to send your child in a mask, if preferred.  Please keep your child at home if they are showing any signs of illness.  

     

    It’s going to take ALL of us working together to keep our school open for another year of learning. Thank you for your support and all you do to help your child be successful both here at school and beyond.  We look forward to another GREAT YEAR at Lewiston Elementary!
