Summer Reading Challenge

Read Books, Have Fun, Win Prizes! Simply visit VBgov.com/SRC  between June 11 and August 4. For more details, please see attached, Summer Reading Challenge.

Summer Math Practice

Research shows that most children lose 2-3 months of math learning over the summer. To combat this learning loss, our district will be using Ten Marks to provide your child with access to a powerful, personalized summer math program designed to help him or her reverse summer learning loss. Your child has already been using Ten Marks at school this year, and an hour a week over the summer is all it takes for your child to strengthen his/her math skills and prepare for the year ahead.  This program will be available for grades 1-5 through July 30th.

Before and After School Care

LES is currently working with VB Parks and recreation to get before school care to return to LES. If you are interested in having before school care at LES, please contact VB Parks and Rec. Registration for the 2018-19 before and after school program begins June 9. For details, please visit www.VBgov.com/childcare.

Donations Needed

Do you have any old smartphones that you are no longer using? Would you be willing to donate them to the library for Makerspaces? We have several coding games, virtual reality opportunities, and merge cubes that require an android or apple phone. If you have a smartphone that you are no longer using and would be willing to donate, please send it in to your library!

Full Day Kindergarten

Landstown Elementary will be implementing full-day kindergarten for the 2018-2019 school year. We are excited for this expanded educational opportunity and are working to prepare for the arrival of our full-day Dolphin Kindergarten students next school year.

Be Social. Be Smart. Be Safe.

We have an important message about school safety and the use of social media. Police and school administrators want to remind you that making a threat against our school, online or in person, can result in criminal charges and expulsion from school. Even if you post the message as a joke, police and prosecutors will take it seriously. School safety is everyone’s responsibility. If you see or hear something that concerns you, report it to a teacher, administrator or police right away. Remember to Be Social. Be Smart. Be Safe.

Student Resources From Home

Did you know that our child can access many of the resources they use here at school at home? The attached document will explain how your child can login to both Clever and their Google accounts from home.

VA Star Program:

Through a partnership with the Virginia Beach Education Foundation, the Office of Community Engagement and VA STAR (Virginia Student Training and Refurbishment Program), free, refurbished computers have been given to families in need since 2009. Refurbished desktop computers are available now for families that meet the qualifications outlined in the attached VA STAR application. If you have questions or would like assistance filling out the application please contact the LES guidance department.

Free and Reduced Dental

The Virginia Beach Department of Public Health offers free or reduced cost dental care at several clinic locations. Students who receive free lunch are eligible for free dental care. For students who receive reduced lunch or do not have insurance, fees are based on a sliding scale. Medicaid is accepted. Exams, X-rays, cleaning, sealants, restorations, selective root-canal and extractions are among the services available. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 518-2694.

Absences

When our Dolphins are absent or late for school, they are missed.  We understand that absences and tardies to school happen and are often unavoidable.  At LES we require parents to provide absent and tardy notes when a child misses school.  If your Dolphin misses school, you can report the absent in the following ways:

  • A handwritten note to your child’s teacher
  • A phone call to Ms. Vollmer in the main office (648-2880)
  • An email to Ms. Vollmer (Sandra.Vollmer@vbschools.com) explaining the reason for the absence

Dolphins who have excessive absences or tardies will be referred to the school’s social worker for further investigation and intervention.

Visitor Check-In System

As part of our efforts to provide the safest learning and working environment possible, the school division is moving to a technology-based visitor management system that will allow for instant identity verification, the printing of destination specific name badges, and a review against a national offender database. Any person wishing to access a school building beyond the security desk will be asked to present a valid driver’s license or military ID. Once the ID is scanned and the information is processed, a temporary badge will be generated with the visitor’s name, time of entry, and desired destination. All information scanned into the system will be considered confidential and will not be distributed to third-party vendors.  Please click on the link, Visitor Check-In, for more details.
