LaBrae Parent-Teacher Conferences & Early Release

Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Thursday, October 13, 2022.  School is in session on October 13th, but LaBrae will use an early release schedule on this day to facilitate parent conferences. Please contact your building secretary to schedule conferences with teachers as applicable.  Please refer to the information below. 

Parent-Teacher Conferences: Thursday, October 13, 2022

Early Release Schedule:

M.S./H.S.: 12:00 p.m.

Bascom/L.I.S.: 1:00 p.m.

Conferences can be scheduled between 2:00 p.m. & 9:00 p.m. in all buildings

H.S./M.S. Student Drop-Off/Pick-Up Instructions Focus on Student Safety

In an effort to improve safety and limit the number of building entry points during the morning M.S./H.S. drop off, LaBrae is making adjustments to our morning drop off locations. Students are not permitted to enter the M.S./H.S. at the doors located on the west side of the Complex as permitted in prior years.  The three points of entry for all students will be the main high school entrance, the middle school entrance adjacent to the bus loading zone, and the main Event Entrance. When dropping off your middle school or high school student(s), we are requiring that parents use the driving lane directly along the M.S./H.S. entrance, if you enter the school campus from N. Leavitt, or the newly designated drop-off location in front of the Board of Education Office, if you are entering the school campus from Eagle Creek Dr.  Also, all student drivers must use the M.S. entrance or the Event Entrance.  

The drop off zones will be marked with cones, and we encourage multiple vehicles drop off students at one time in the designated zones.  This should help expedite the drop off process and move the traffic through more efficiently.  Additionally, students are not to be dropped off in the main drive of the Complex or in the visitor/staff parking lot in front of the high school.  Doing so creates an unsafe environment where students then have to cross traffic in the main drive and/or the visitor parking lot in front of the Complex. 

In order to prevent students from crossing through traffic, we ask that parents do not park along the main drive for student pick up.  Parents picking up their M.S./H.S. child are to use the driving lane adjacent to the school, or the parking lot in front of the Board of Education Office, which is directly behind the bus loading zone. Vehicles are prohibited from being in the bus loading zone during student drop-off/pick-up times.

It is important to eliminate, as practical as possible, any practices where students have to cross traffic as they enter or exit the building. Therefore, we kindly request that our parents join us in helping to make the morning/afternoon traffic environment at LaBrae a safe place for students.  Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated!

Please refer to the map below for the designated areas referred to above.

2022-2023 School Year Nurse's Letter

Parents,

In preparation for the upcoming school year the clinic needs a few things in order to help keep students safe at school.

  • Please review/complete FinalForms for each of your students prior to the first day of school
  • Provide current action plans for students with asthma, seizures, or anaphylaxis as well as needed rescue medications. These need to be in the clinic before school starts. If your student carries their inhaler etc on them during the school day we still need the action plan on file in the clinic.
  • If your child has a food allergy make the cafeteria aware. If substitutions are required a doctor’s order is needed if not already on file.  Contact sally [dot] deehratlabrae [dot] school for cafeteria issues.
  • Medications that are required to be given daily in school require a written doctor’s order. An adult must bring the medication to school.  Do not send medications to school with students.
  • Generic action plans and medication orders are available at the Nurse’s Notes & Forms page.
  • Finally, students in grade 7 need to show proof of a Tdap & meningitis shot, Students in grade 12 must show proof of a meningitis booster shot or, if they were over 16 when the first shot was given, the date of the first meningitis shot. Any K student who was not up to date at the time of registration must provide a current shot record.  All students newly enrolled in the district, regardless of grade level, need an up to date shot record on file also.
