    What should I do?

    • Sleep! Send well-rested kids to school! Start those bedtime routines a bit earlier in the weeks and days leading up to school. 
    • Laurel teachers (with the support of the Laurel PTO) provide all the necessary classroom supplies for every student.
    • Decide how your child will commute to school and practice the trip before school starts. Click here for information.
    • Please label all items. Things can get lost or misplaced easily.

     

    What should my child bring?

    Laurel teachers (with the support of the Laurel PTO) provide all the necessary classroom supplies for every student. Children in all grades:
    • Must wear shoes with backs (no flip flops or slides) please.
    • Bring a large backpack big enough to fit an 8 1/2 x 11 folder;
    • snack to eat at morning recess; and
    • lunch - either sign up for Hot Lunch in advance or send along a lunchbox/brown bag labeled with your child’s name.

     

    Where to go on the first day of school? 

    • Students in grades 1-5 play at the Main Yard.
    • Students in kindergarten assemble at the kindergarten playground.
    • When the bell rings, students are to"Freeze, hands on knees!"
    • Then the morning yard duty blows a whistle twice, and students go to their classrooms.

     

    Parents are invited to the Volunteer Sign Up and Back-to-School Coffee Social in the main plaza area that goes from 8:30 - 10 AM.
