Does your school offer breakfast or lunch?

We do not run a food services program out of LBS; however students may purchase lunch through our local General Store (as coordinated by our PTA) or bring a sack lunch from home. We do provide a continental breakfast for students participating in our Before School Care program.

Do you enforce a dress code at LBS?

We expect our students to dress in an appropriate manner at all times. Student dress may not present a health or a safety hazard, violate municipal, county, or state law, or present a potential disruption of the educational process. Generally, we suggest students wear:

  • Casual, loose clothing that allows children to move and play comfortably
  • Low-heeled, close-toed shoes that are safe and appropriate for recess and PE 
  • Shorts/skirts that reach mid-thigh in length
  • Sleeved tops and dresses
  • Clothing that fits at the waist and covers the entire midsection as well as all undergarments
  • Clothing that is free of vulgar language and symbols, and that does not promote bullying, drugs, alcohol, and other illegal substances

We also suggest students leave fancy, dangling jewelry at home where it cannot get lost or get caught on any play equipment and cause injury.

How can I get more involved?

We strongly encourage your involvement. Please take the time to introduce yourself to your child’s teacher and let him or her know that you’re interested in getting involved. We also invite you to join the PTA and make your voice heard! Parents can also support their child’s education in some basic ways, including:

  • Encouraging your child to get plenty of sleep 
  • Offering a healthy diet, including a good breakfast (or getting your child to school early enough to eat breakfast in our cafeteria)
  • Helping your child get up in plenty of time for school
  • Providing neat, clean, comfortable clothes
