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.

Inclement Weather and School Delays/Cancellations

Now that winter weather is upon us, the conditions always create the potential that school will be delayed, or cancelled, due to inclement weather.  LaBrae wants parents to know that LaBrae does have a 2-hour delay schedule that can be implemented when the weather conditions make a delayed start the most viable option for that day's schedule.  If a 2-hour delay is called, LaBrae pre-school classes will be cancelled for that day, and LaBrae will not serve breakfast the morning of the delay. 

Parents are encouraged to have a child care plan in place for days when a 2-hour delay is utilized, or when school is cancelled.  Also, parents should ensure that the office has accurate phone numbers on file so that school delay/cancellation phone calls are delivered properly.  In addition to the phone call via LaBrae's call system, SchoolMessenger, LaBrae will ensure that delay and cancellation notices are also sent through the District social media outlets, Twitter and Viking Nation, and notices will be sent to local radio and television stations for broadcast.

Viking Pantry

In November 2018, LaBrae Local Schools opened the Viking Pantry.  The District is pleased to be able to offer this service to our students.  LaBrae is grateful to the partnership with the Second Harvest Foodbank of the Mahoning Valley, which enabled the District the opportunity to establish a pantry to serve students. There are two pantries located in the District, one at Bascom Elementary and one at the Complex. 

LaBrae is appreciative of everyone who has donated to the Viking Pantry, or worked to make this vision become a reality. Donations to the Viking Pantry are being accepted. Donations can be dropped off at Bascom or the Main Complex (high school entrance) anytime during the school day. Please contact Amy Frederick for more information or to make a monetary donation: amy [dot] frederickatlabrae [dot] school or 330-898-0800.  If you are aware of a student in need, please use the referral form below.

Final Forms

FinalForms

FinalForms is utilized in grades PK-12 to manage emergency medicals forms, handbooks, and other activities that previously involved distribution, completion, and return of a form.  Parents with multiple children in the district will find this portal for document management to be a tremendous time saver.

At least one parent for each child must have a Final Forms account.  Students in grades 6-12 will also need to create their own individual account as the student will also be required to electronically sign various forms of acknowledgement.  Only parents and students who are new to LaBrae need to register and create accounts.  If you had a LaBrae Final Forms account last year, your account is still active.  All parents, and students who will be in grades 6-12 for the coming school year, are asked to review and electronically sign all forms by the first day of school.  For students in grades 7-12 that plan to play a fall sport, the parent and student registration needs to be completed as soon as possible in order to begin fall practices. 

To register for your account, please use the Final Forms Guide for Parents below.  The FinalForms guide will assist you in the registration process. To access the FinalForms page to begin registration, or to login, click on the FinalForms icon above, or use the login link at the bottom of this page.

Below are a few tips when registering:

  • For students in grades PK-5, student emails and student signatures are NOT required.
  • For students in grades 6-12, the student email address must be a unique email address. A registered parent email cannot be used as a student email address.
  • Grades 7-12: If you are a student athlete and your OHSAA Physical has been completed, you will NOT need to print the last two forms, the OHSAA PPE Medical History and the OHSAA PPE Physical (for Physicians). However, you will still need to fill out and SIGN both forms regarding the OHSAA PPE. Again there is no need to print these forms, if your OHSAA Physical has been completed. If your physical has not been completed you will print these forms to take with you to the physician’s office.
