A Message From Principal Caudill
Good Afternoon Blackcat Family,
The faculty and staff at LTMS thank you for such a wonderful day. Our students were fabulous, well prepared and eager to begin the school year. As a reminder, there are many forms for your review and signature. We're asking you to spend a few moments reviewing these materials tonight and return with your student tomorrow or Friday. Again, we are not permitted to release your child's chromebook until all Acceptable Use and Technology Agreement forms are completed. All fees are due at this time.
A couple policy updates we could use your support with while reviewing the day with your student.
- Cellphones are not permitted during school hours. Once the morning tardy bell rings at 9:05am personal communication devices should be powered down, placed in the student's locker or pockets until the end of the school day at 3:55pm.
- Our dress code policy highlights: We're asking for your support regarding rips, tears or frays above the knee. Please do not allow your student to arrive to school in pants with excessive tears and rips on the thigh, above the knee. All shirts should cover the student's chest to the collarbone and cover the shoulders. Our policy does not permit muscle shirts or straps.
All car rider drop-offs need to arrive and exit the campus on North Limestone Street. Please do not drive into the bus unloading zone off of 4th Street. During morning student drop-offs, please ask your child to remain in your car until you arrive near the cafeteria entrance. If you need to visit the school office, please park in a designated parking lot area and walk into the building. Please do not park in the car-rider line during school hours, 8:35am to 4:15pm. We appreciate your assistance with providing a safe and orderly student arrival procedure.
Thanks for a great start to the school year!
A message from the PTSA
Dear LTMS families, students and teachers,
We are so excited for the 2018-2019 school year, and we’re hoping you’ll join us for all the fun and learning at LTMS! We’re starting up the LTMS Parent Teacher Student Association after a hiatus last year, so please be patient as we navigate our way through the best ways to support teachers and students at our great school.
Our monthly meetings will take place the first Tuesday of each month at 5:30 in the library, and we hope you can join us. The first meeting will be Tuesday, Sept. 4. This year’s board is made up of working parents, so we understand how busy everyone is, and we hope you can join us or at least volunteer every once in a while. Check the LTMS PTSA page for updates -- https://www.fcps.net/Page/13016 -- and while you’re there, please fill out the survey to let us know what kinds of events you’d be interested in joining.
Also, if you haven’t signed up with the Kroger Community Rewards Program, please do at this address: https://www.kroger.com/account/enrollCommunityRewardsNow/. This is the most painless way to raise money, as Kroger donates a small percentage of your grocery bill to LTMS every time you shop.
Parents are a key component to student success, and we look forwarding to working with you!
Tom Butler, president
Linda Blackford, vice-president, fundraising
Laura Brown, vice-president, membership and parent member of the LTMS site-based decision making council
