Principal Letter

Dear Families,

The LFP staff enjoyed a wonderful soup lunch last week provided by PTA and the fabulous fifth grade parents. The staff truly appreciated having a tasty warm meal to enjoy together. Thank you also to Buffy McCormack who organized the wreath sales for our fifth grade students to raise money for next year’s Camp Orkila experience.

For those picking up your child/ren in front of the school on foot, please wait for your child at the far end of the front area next to the cross walk. This will allow for the staff out front after school to clearly see the students lined up along the wall and improve student safety while making student pick up more efficient.

The next Principal Coffee will be on Thursday, December 10th at 9:30 am featuring Ellen Kaje, Director of ELL/Title 1/LAP programs. Ellen will be sharing about the district ELL program and how LFP qualifies for the Federal Title 1 program. Please bring your questions and we look forward to seeing you there. Everyone is welcome and if you would like to request an interpreter, please contact the office and we will arrange for one.

The updated district photo policy is asking parents to refrain from taking photos in classrooms or on field trips in order to protect all children. We appreciate your cooperation on this and please see the district letter coming home about this today.

Our students show their Lifeskill of caring in a variety of ways at LFP. Last month, students collected over 500 pairs of socks that were delivered to The WORKS. Students are also doing community service, which turns into financial support for the many medical needs of our Sparrow, Lincoln Rich. I am thankful for the incredible empathy, compassion, and caring that our students show on a regular basis. Thank you for sending us such incredible students.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Principal Miner

District closed to new non-resident applications for grades K-6 for 2015-16

Over the past year the Shoreline School District has been keeping a close watch on our increasing enrollment.  While this is a positive sign after many years of declining enrollment this trend does present some challenges to our schools.  As a result of:

  • Increased enrollment
  • Space constraints particularly at the elementary level
  • Anticipated future growth

the Shoreline School District has carefully come to the following decision:

In accordance with Policy 3141 and 3141P, in which admittance of non-resident students shall take into consideration classroom and program capacity to serve and not diminish educational opportunities and services to students of Shoreline and Lake Forest Park residents, the Shoreline School District is now closed to new non-resident boundary transfer applications for grades K-6 for the 2015-16 school year.

Current students with non-resident boundary transfers for the 2014-15 school year will be allowed to continue to attend the Shoreline School District unless the family moves or admission is revoked for the reasons identified in the notice of acceptance. The District will reevaluate enrollment capacity prior to the beginning of the 2015-16 school year. At that time siblings of students with current non-resident boundary exceptions will be given priority should space become available.

The District will continue to honor all statutory and contractual obligations relating to non-resident boundary transfer applications for the children of District employees.
