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 another “normal” school year. Time for a RESET. Currently, students, teachers, staff and visitors will NOT be required 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 maintain 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. 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 17th any time from 4:00-6:00 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.
Our School hours this year return to 9:05 to 3:35 pm on Monday - Thursday with an early out on Friday from 9:05 to 2:20 pm. Please come on time and be ready to learn!
- Grades 1st - 6th begin school on Thursday, August 18th.
- Preschool begins school on Monday, August 22nd.
- Kindergarten begins school on Thursday, August 25th.
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.
The free school Breakfast and Lunch program for ALL students has been discontinued this coming school year. However, our school receives additional Title I funds based on applications for these benefits. Free and Reduced Lunch applications are available online Child Nutrition Program / Free or Reduced-price Lunch Applications So, please consider completing an application today to help our school if your family meets the guidelines. Click the link Free and Reduced Lunch Eligibility 2021-2022 to see if your income qualifies free or reduced [Note: Include all members living with you for Household size]
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.
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!
Principal Troy Pugmire
