Drop-off/pick-up

Parents are expected to stay in a single file line along the outer curve of our Main Parking Lot when dropping off and/or picking up their child. Please remain courteous to all the other drivers by waiting patiently in line, please do not cut or skip the line. Please continue to pull forward to the far end of our drop off zone in the main parking lot, following the directions of the LMES staff members, this will help everyone ensure a quick and safe drop-off/pick-up. Please do not drop-off or pick-up your child from the inner circles of the Main Parking Lot. It is extremely unsafe for any student to use our crosswalk without their parent or guardian escorting them. Please escort your child when using the crosswalk in front of the school and/or when using the bridge to get to the overflow parking area.

New parents and first time visitors

New parents and first time visitors please be prepared to have your driver's license run through our Raptor System by our front office staff. The Raptor System instantly screens each and every visitor against the registered sex offender databases in all fifty states. The Raptor System ensures that accurate and reliable records are kept for every visitor that enters our school, each and every day. You will only need to produce your driver's license on the first visit. After the initial visit, you will be instructed to check-in at the Kiosk, located in the front office.
