Back to School Sign Up Day

Speed up the Back to School process at Sign Up Day!

Thursday, August 25, 2022

4:00 - 6:00 p.m.

Dear Parents,

Sign Up Day is for ALL LJES families, new and returning. This event offers parents a convenient way to complete mandatory paperwork for the upcoming school year. In addition, parents may meet with representatives from our PTO and Friends Foundations or meet with vendors and enroll in optional After School Programs. Please stop by our Welcome Tent, and meet Jema Edwards our Welcome Committee Chair. She will be handing out our checklists and answer any questions you have and set up campus tours with our very responsible 5th graders. Sign Up Day will be held in the LJES auditorium (entrance on Girard St.).

New families must register/enroll in the school office prior to attending Sign Up Day. The school office will re-open for new family enrollment on August 16th. Any family that is unable to attend Sign Up Day must complete mandatory paperwork in the school office. While we need this paperwork as early in the school year as possible, please do not call or visit the office regarding Sign Up Day paperwork prior to the first day of school as the office is extremely busy with the start of school on the first two days back. Please complete the forms that are available and drop them in the box on the front counter of the school office after August 26th.

Please read each of the boxes below for actions items you need to complete!!!

What is a Disaster Preparedness kit?
And why does my child need one?

  • Print and fill out the Disaster Preparedness Form.
  • Prepare your child's kit with items on list and place in a gallon size plastic bag.
  • Every child should have a kit in their child's class room.
  • Bring the completed disaster kit to your child's classroom on the first day of school.
