This is Stacie Gerrells, principal of Lumpkin County Elementary School. Tomorrow May 7, is the last day of new assignments for the 2019/20 school year. If your child has completed all assignments at a satisfactory level, then his or her school work is complete. If your child has struggled to complete the assignments or is still working on the assignments, then teachers will be reaching out to you and your child to help him or her complete the work up until May 22.
We will have several different days set up for you to return Chromebooks, paper packets, and library books. On these days you will also be able to pick up your child’s personal belongings and yearbooks. If you have not purchased a yearbook, we do have extras for sale. Yearbooks are 30 dollars a piece. Please be sure to bring all school property back during this drop off. Yearbooks will not be distributed to students that still have school property to return.
We will have curbside pickup with different stations. You will drive up like you would for the parent pick up line. You will stay in your car, drive up to the different stations, and the staff member at each station will assist you. Please have your chromebook charged and powered up. Before handing your chromebook off to the staff member, you will open it up to show that it is working and there are no missing keys. Not having the chromebook charged and powered up will delay the return process. If it is not able to turn on, you will have to park and bring your chromebook into the building.
It is important that as you are pulling through the individual stations that you do not pass the cars in front of you. Please stay in line. This will help keep everyone safe and the lines moving quickly.
The first drop off/pick up day will be Tuesday, May 12 from 8:00am to 4:00pm. The next date will be determined at a later time.
I want to personally thank you for all of your support this school year, especially during this difficult time. This is not the way any of us would have chosen for the year to end, and our students, faculty and staff, and parents continue to amaze me with the resilience that has been shown. As always, feel free to reach out to me with any questions.
