Welcome to an exciting new year at Lakewood Elementary School.
On August 8, 2013, I was appointed the interim principal at Lakewood. As many of you may know, I retired two years ago after serving for fifteen years as the principal. I look forward to greeting the children as they arrive the first day of school and meeting the new parents as well as seeing old friends.
Our staff is dedicated to providing every child with the best educational opportunity possible. Parents/guardians are our partners in the important job of educating our children. Please know that I have an Open Door Policy and I am always available to discuss any matter.
This year school officially starts on September 9, 2013. Lakewood is designated a late school, therefore, arrival and dismissal times are as follows:
Doors Open: 8:20 A.M.
School Begins: 8:30 A.M.
Dismissal: 3:05 P.M.
Parents/guardians are cautioned to drive slowly upon entering Lakeland Avenue. Cars will not be permitted to enter the parking circle near the main entrance after 8:00 A.M. Students are dropped off at the south exit. Walkers/riders will be dismissed after the loading of the school buses (approximately 3:10-3:15 P.M.). Parents will then enter the circle and students will leave through the main entrance.
The staff and I look forward to a successful and rewarding school year with your children. Thank you for your continued support.
Joan Taylor, Ed. D.
