**Major News: We get it. 2020 as a year has quite a reputation! Much will be different this year. We want to help simplify things… Our goal is to cut out fundraising. (Yes, you read that right!) We are asking parents to please be generous with donations when you sign up. If we reach our goal, we’ll be able to eliminate most of our fundraising activities. We are all in this together!

With fundraising efforts put on hold for the time being, the success of our membership drive is more important than ever. Please look for the “Donations Gratefully Accepted” button after singing up for membership.

We invite you to join because we can do more together than apart.

Yearbook Photos, Get Those Camera’s Snapping

Please remember to upload your first day of school pictures onto the TreeRing app. We would love to see the faces of all LAS students in the yearbook. There is also a separate folder for Virtual Learning. Since everyone will be doing virtual learning, please take and upload pictures of your children that attend LAS and add them to the corresponding folder.

If you are a 3rd grade parent, please log into your TreeRing account and update your child’s new school info. Once you log in, there should be a drop down menu and prompt you to switch their school from WAS to LAS.

4th and 5th grade parents, please update your child’s class/teacher’s name after you log in. This will help us greatly when it’s time to distribute yearbooks.
5th grade parents…your yearbook is paid for by the PTA. Please do not purchase it unless you want two copies!!! Simply just log in and update your child’s teacher info.

As always, if you have any questions about the yearbook, please feel free to contact Mei Seeto ([email protected]) or Nicki D’Andrea.

Entry Procedures

Some clarification on entry procedures…

This year, fifteen minutes have been reserved for entry procedures. Each day a staff member will greet the students at their assigned door. Before entry, the staff member will verify that each student has completed the attestation form and will take each student’s temperature. Different than in years past, we do not want everyone congregating at the doors before school. Please use the fifteen minute window as a way to stagger and maintain physical distancing while entering the building. The entry window is 8:25-8:40 a.m.
