    Plan for the first day of school

    • Start those bedtime routines a bit earlier in the days leading up to school, so that your child is well-rested.
    • 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.

     

    Pack up and prepare

    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.
    Laurel teachers (with the support of the Laurel PTO) provide all the necessary classroom supplies for every student.

     

    Know where to go

    • At the Lower Campus (grades K-2),
      • students in kindergarten assemble at the kindergarten playground.
      • students in grades 1 & 2 play in the Main Yard.
    • At the Upper Campus (grades 3-5), students play in the Main Yard.
    • 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 Back-to-School Coffee on August 19th to catch up with friends, sign up to volunteer, and meet our After-School Program vendors, at Lower and Upper Campus, from 8:30 - 9:30 AM. This event may be on Zoom. TBD
