Tardy Policy

Students are expected to be seated in class when the tardy bell rings. If a student is late to school, he/she is required to check in with the attendance office before going to class. Frequent tardiness without a valid excuse is considered truancy under state law. You may view your student attendance and tardy records by logging into SchoolLoop and clicking on the attendance tab or through the Student and Parent Portals.

8th grade Lion parents!  It is time to assemble a team of organized and creative people to coordinate the 8th grade dance at the end of the year.  The great news is that the date is already set (May 26th), the theme has been chosen, the major props have been rented, the photo booth has been reserved, the caterers are booked as well as supplemental entertainment, and the ideal invitations have already been identified....whew! (I am trying to make it easy for you!)  What is needed are people to see the vision through; specifically, we need parents to:

1) Coordinate invitation creation

2) Administrate parent "personal message" gathering

3) Decorate the MPR the week of the dance

4) Make phone calls to confirm the reservations and

5) Sacrifice yourself to be part of a MASSIVE clean-up crew after the dance

If you are interested in helping your child make the type of memories that will last a lifetime, have a heart willing to serve, or just want to put your creative stamp on one of LRMS' signature events -- this opportunity is for you!  We will be meeting next Tuesday, January 17 at 3pm in room 709.

Student and Parent Concerns:

 

Parents please make sure that our school busses have access to the bus lane during drop off and pick up.  This week we almost had an accident when a parent cut off the school bus turning into the bus lane.  Additionally, please be courteous and observe the traffic laws when dropping off students at both LRMS and LRES.  The safety of our children is at stake!

 

Attention 6th Grade Parents: Tdap Vaccine Requirement For Students Entering 7th Grade.  In order to avoid long lines at summer orientation, LRMS is asking our current 6th grade families to bring a copy of their Tdap records to the office prior to the end of the school year. Whooping cough (pertussis) has been widespread in California. Many students have had to miss school because they were sick. To help protect your children and others from whooping cough, a new California law now requires students to be vaccinated against whooping cough. 

 

Do ALL 7th grade students need to get the pertussis immunization?  Yes. All students going into 7th grade must have proof of having had the Tdap booster shot. This includes current students, new students and transfer students in both public and private schools. Many students have already received the vaccine and simply need to supply proof to the school, so check with your doctor or provider.   As soon as you have proof of the Tdap, please bring it into the office so that we may clear you for next year.

 

Address Change: If you have an address change please notify the front office ASAP by bringing in a current mortgage/lease agreement AND a current utility bill. If you have questions please contact Kelly Larkins our Registrar at kalarkins@capousd.org

 

ListServ: Community Message:  Ladera Ranch MS (as well as all CUSD schools) is transitioning away from traditional listserv emails. We will be sending messages through School Messenger.  Community members who wish to stay up to date with school messages should sign up here.  Parents of students in the school should not sign up for this service.  Doing so will result in double messaging.  As an additional service, community members and parents may also download the CUSD app on iTunes and Google Play to receive the same community messages via notifications.  As of February 1, 2017 we will no longer use listserv!
