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.
Dear Amazing LFP Families~
It was wonderful to see so many of you learning from your children at Open House last Thursday night. Everyone seemed to have a great time at the art walk, ice cream social, poetry slam, and book fair. Thank you for helping us earn money for our library by purchasing books last week from the Scholastic Book Fair. Ms. Tucker, Mrs. Green and Julie Wolff and her many volunteers, and sixth grade students did an outstanding job running the busy book fair. A big thank you to the art docents, led by Tami Thompson and Kathleen Berry, for mounting close to 600 pieces of art and taking it all down in one night. Thank you to Joe and Caprice Sauter for purchasing all the ice cream and handing out hundreds of ice cream bars at the ice cream social. The ice cream hit the spot on that warm night. Superintendent Rebecca Miner really enjoyed seeing the incredible art, listening to poetry, and visiting classrooms. We appreciate her for joining our celebration of learning!
Last week, Mrs. Ross and Mrs. Ridge were both honored at the District Special Needs PTA meeting as outstanding general education educators because of how they make accommodations for students with special needs. Congratulations to Mrs. Ross and Mrs. Ridge!
If your child attends Reading Club with Mrs. Reinbold, we hope that you will join us tonight, June 2nd at 6:30 pm for the Title 1 reading night. Thursday night, we want all 5th and 6th grade band and orchestra students here to perform. They have been working hard and have an excellent concert planned to perform for you at 7:00 pm. On Friday at 10:00 am and
7:00 pm, our fabulous first graders will be performing the Rumpus in the Rainforest. Many fun events this week at LFP!
Your child is collecting pledges for our all-school Walk-a-thon on June 12th. Students will walk laps on Friday, June 12th to earn money to replace the bridge on the playground and other playground equipment. We had thought we may need some of the Walk-a-thon funds to cover Camp Orkila, but our fifth grader families have earned enough money to cover camp for next year. So, Walk-a-thon funds will be for playground equipment.
Thank you for all that you do for LFP! If you volunteer, we would like to invite you to a volunteer tea on Tuesday,
June 16th at 3:30 pm. We so appreciate your giving of time to make LFP a fantastic place to learn.
Thank you for sending us such incredible students. Principal Miner
