Week One 21/22 - 8.27.21 Memo


Leopard End of Week One Reminders & Updates:


WCPSS Covid 19 Guidance - Please click here to review WCPSS Covid-19 Safe Return to School Plan


Water Bottles & Towels - Students should bring a labeled water bottle and towel each school day. The towel allows students to picnic in the shade on these warm summer days. 


Face Coverings - We appreciate families discussing the importance of mask compliance with their Little Leopards. We are working hard to ensure students are covering the nose, mouth and securing the mask under the chin. 


Thank You - Our Leopard Families have done a great job ensuring that Leopards who are feeling ill stay home and ensure wellness prior to coming to campus. We appreciate that commitment as well as the communications related to Leopard absences. We are in this together! 


No Left Turn - There is no left turn into or out of our campus during arrival and dismissal. Following this expectation will keep the flow of traffic moving and our walkers safe.


Arrive on Time - All students should arrive on campus by 8:25am to be seated and ready to begin their day by 8:30am


Lunch Menus - Due to food and supply shortages, there is uncertainty about the availability of items for school meal programs. Child Nutrition Services will do all that they can to serve the planned menus however, substitutions may be necessary and menu variety may be limited. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to overcome these challenges.


Pick up by 3:30pm - Students should be picked up from carpool by 3:30pm. If this is a problem, we have an after school program you can enroll your child in until 6:00pm.


Bus Dismissal - Until the Here Comes the Bus App is up and running for the 21-22 school year, we will Tweet as buses leave our campus. Please follow @Lead_Mine on Twitter to see the information. Our front office phone line will not be answered between 2:55 and 3:25 as our upriority is dismissing the children. If you call between those times, you will have to leave a message.


Bus Tracking - CLICK HERE to learn about how to track your Leopard's bus as they travel their route each morning and afternoon. 


Leo's CubHouse - Due to extended dismissal times, we ask that Leo's parents not begin their pick up until after 3:45. Our buses need to have access to the bus loop to load students through 3:45 each afternoon.
