Re: A New Building (and its temporary issues)
July 29, 2008
Dear Parent / Guardian:
It is our sincere hope that you are having a wonderful time enjoying the beauty of another New Hampshire Lakes Region summer. Over at our brand new middle school, work continues in preparation of our first year as “Laconia Middle School.” Thus far it has been a busy summer of moving in new equipment and furniture and learning how our new, green school works.
As you are aware, there are some important pieces of information that all parents / guardians should be aware of as we begin our second year of construction at the Laconia Middle School. The following bullets provide some information on how to access the school as well as student pick-up and drop-off procedures that will assist everyone during this school year.
As it is obvious that physically accessing the building will be more difficult for this school year, we strongly encourage parents / guardians to regularly communicate with teams, teachers and administrators as often as will benefit students via email and phone. Our new school has a messaging system that takes information for teachers directly to the phones in their rooms. It is our hope that our overall communication will be enhanced with the new technology that exists throughout the new building.
Additionally, parents who want to pick up their child just prior to the end of the school day for appointments will have great difficulty getting out of the traffic pattern so planning pick-ups between 1:45pm and 2:15 pm should be avoided.
As always, thank you for supporting our middle school program. We look forward to an outstanding school year as we seek to continue our movement toward educational excellence!
