Good morning! Today is Monday, August 19th, and it is an A Day for everyone. Welcome to the first day of what will be an exciting school year! School will be in session for a full day (8:00 am-2:30 pm) this week except for Wednesday. All District 186 students will be dismissed one hour early (1:30 p.m.) every Wednesday during the 2019-2020 School Year.

Students will report to their homerooms when the 7:50am bell rings. In homeroom they will receive a schedule, their locker information, and directions from their teacher on where to put school supplies.

All students interested in joining the Cross Country Team should plan on attending our first official meeting/practice on Tuesday, August 21, after school from 2:30-4:00 pm. Be sure to come dressed for a workout. All runners must have a current physical on file or a scheduled doctor's appointment in order to continue participating. Ball Charter students will ride a bus to LMS. Please make sure your student knows their activity bus and stop location. LMS students must be eligible for regular bus transportation to LMS in order to ride an activity bus. Ball Charter students are eligible to ride an activity bus if they do not live within walking distance of LMS. Parents may also pick up their student promptly at 4:15 p.m.

Drop off and Pick Up Procedures: Students who are car riders will need to be dropped off in the morning on the Capitol Street side of the building.  DO NOT DRIVE ON THE BLACKTOP TO DROP OFF OR PICKUP A STUDENT!!!

Dismissal: Parents may not park on Monroe Street (behind the building), 12th Street (east of the building), nor on Capitol Street (in front of the building). All other side streets, as well as the church parking lot on the corner of 12th Street & Monroe Street, may be used for student pick up.
Parents should not drive on the blacktop to park, or for student drop off or pick up. **During the school day, the blacktop parking lot is reserved for LMS and District staff only.  There is a handicap accessible parking spot available during the day located to the right of the 12th Street Entrance next to the playground.
