Adirondack Journal photographer Nancy Frasier captured this image of students in Mrs. Lockhart’s kindergarten class at the Lake George Elementary School in March 2011.
The 2011-12 school year in the Lake George School District begins Thursday, Sept. 8.
On the elementary campus, school days start at 7:45 a.m. when students walk into their classrooms. Dismissal begins at 2:10 p.m. with kindergarten pupils and finishes by 2:15 p.m.with our Intermediate II students. Note that dismissal is several minutes later for kindergarten this year, and parents are asked not to arrive prior to 2:05 p.m. for pick-up.
Drivers are asked, in an effort to maximize safety, to park only in marked, permitted parking spaces. When dropping off students, drivers should pull up to the end of our drop-off zone and have their children ready to exit to the crosswalk. At pick up, use only the doors by the library to enter and exit and always use the crosswalks.
Summer reading paperwork, published on the school website, is due to classroom teachers by Friday, Sept. 9.
This year, school lunches are $2.10 and breakfast is $1.25
Note the following important events prior to school opening: kindergarten orientation is to be held from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. On Sept. 6 and Sept. 7, the Lake George School will be closed for staff development days.
Note that on Friday Sept. 16, the Parent-Teacher-Student organization will be holding its annual Fall Festival from 5 to 7 p.m. Family members are urged to contact Kim O’Connell at email@example.com to volunteer.
