Imagine a school where all students are welcomed, included and celebrated. When you walk through the doors at Lannon Elementary School you understand why families want to send their children here. “Make Them Never Want to Miss a Day” is the motto of staff who care about all of our families and find meaningful ways to connect students to learning. We provide a supportive learning environment with opportunities to learn from failure while promoting each child’s individual strengths. The results are a positive, caring school with outstanding academic performance.
Student learning continues during extended illness and quarantine
Our school district is committed to supporting learners moving in and out of the classroom due to extended illnesses (2 or more days) or quarantine in a consistent way across the district so that learning is not interrupted.
If your child is absent from school due to illness or a need to quarantine, he or she will have the opportunity to stay connected to his or her learning via Daily Learning Expectations posted to his/her Seesaw journal. These Daily Learning Expectations will include the taped mini lessons for the day along with assignments that support the lesson learning goals. Please view an example HERE. Please note that daily learning tasks from the day of absence will not be posted until the following morning (Example: Monday’s lessons will be posted Tuesday morning).
Our goal is to provide your child with access to the key lesson components and allow for concept practice. By viewing the recorded mini lessons and completing the learning tasks contained in the Daily Learning Expectations, your children will be ready to re-enter their classrooms in line with their peers.
Thank you for partnering with us as we ensure our students can continue their learning

Lannon library website
Do you know that through the Lannon Library Website, your child has access to many educational resources that can be accessed and used at home? You can also access Library Lessons here if your child is ever absent. Please be sure you have this site bookmarked and easily accessible.
Do you know that your child needs to login and use their Hamilton School District Google account to be able to access many of these resources? Your device at home will need to authenticate that your child is a Hamilton School District student since these databases are paid subscriptions. Click this document to learn how to add your child’s school Google account at home.
Did you know that your child can check out books at any time from our virtual library using the Sora app? Click here for more details.
If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Morrill, the Library Media Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
