3.2017-18 Student Pick-up Authorization Form - Please Complete for All Students at LME
It is time to to collect pick-up authorization information for our students via an online form to ensure we have this information readily available, particularly if/when we need to implement our parent/student reunification plan due to an emergency. Anyone who you might possibly ask to pick-up your child for any reason (siblings, neighbors, relatives, co-workers. etc.) should be listed on this form. Anyone not listed on the online form or student registration form will not be permitted to pick up your child for any reason. We ask that one parent from each household complete this form as soon as possible.

4. Earbuds or Headphones- I would like for each child to have his/her own earbuds/headphones to use in class. If you have an extra pair around the house, please place it in a zip lock bag, label with name and send it in. Your child will keep this and use it throughout the year. Thanks!
