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.
Join us for our NEW MOM EVENT!
Enjoy a FREE dinner and movie. A “walking taco” dinner with vegetarian option will be served. Bring your own snacks (no alcoholic beverages) or enjoy FREE popcorn with the movie. Don’t forget a blanket, beach chair or sleeping bag. (Limited folding chairs available for those who require it.)

**In our first year of this special Lannon event we are trying to provide adequate space for all while honoring the intent of the event which is to celebrate our Lannon moms and Lannon students. Thank you for respecting our need to limit attendees to present Lannon students, their moms, or another adult if Mom is not available. We will explore the possibilities of extending invitations to others in the future after we are able to receive feedback and reflect on the results from our first go at this event.

Be prepared for school closings
A variety of circumstances may require district officials to close school, delay opening or call for an early dismissal. Families should prepare for those possibilities by developing a plan and going over it with their children in advance to ensure they have a safe place to be if school closes.
Schools closings will be communicated through:
- automated phone and text messages sent from Infinite Campus; and
- district website, Facebook and Infinite Campus portal postings.
To ensure urgent messages reach your family, please check notification choices in Infinite Campus and verify that phone numbers are correct.
The automated system:
- typically calls between 5:15 – 6:15 a.m. if school is cancelled or delayed;
- will call up to five different numbers provided, including home, work and cell phone numbers;
- will leave a message if an answering machine picks up;
- is not able to dial extensions, advance through an automated attendant message system or call toll-free numbers; and
- does not contact people designated as emergency contacts such as grandparents or neighbors.
In general, schools close when temperatures reach a wind chill “warning” – 35 degrees below zero or colder with winds at least four miles per hours for three or more hours. Expect schools to be open during a wind chill “advisory” when temperatures are 20-34 degrees below zero.
When school is open, all students are expected to attend. However, individual circumstances vary and parents make the ultimate decision for the welfare of their children.
Keep students home if they are ill
Schools are seeing an increase in students with colds, fevers and upset stomachs. Here are reminders about steps parents can take to keep our schools and your family healthy.
Most importantly, keep children home if they are ill. If necessary, seek medical care.
Students with fevers should stay out of school for at least 24 hours after fever is gone without use of Tylenol® or Ibuprofen®. Ill students should not attend alternative childcare. Children or adults ill with other symptoms, should stay home at least one day to see how the illness develops and until completely well for 24 hours. Children who are ill upon arrival at school or become ill during the school day will be sent home. Our school website has more information about when it’s best to keep kids home.
In addition to staying home when sick, following are other ways to stay healthy and keep others safe.
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hands cleaners are also effective.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way.
- Eat nutritious foods, drink fluids and get plenty of rest.
- At school, teachers will be reinforcing good hand-washing practices and healthy habits with students.
Sharing birthday treats can be a fun birthday celebration but by no means is it an expectation. If you plan to send a birthday treat for your child’s classroom please be aware of the following:
- Student allergies. Teachers will notify families if they have a classroom with allergy restrictions. Original boxes and packaging with ingredient lists are appreciated whenever possible.
- Send only enough treats for the students in the classroom, and you are welcome to include the teacher and assistant if you’d like.
- We are asking items not be shared outside of the classroom.
Thank you for understanding as we work to celebrate while respecting the sensitivities of others and minimizing disruptions to the school day.
