Principal Letter

Dear Wonderful LFP Families,

We are enjoying your students and look forward to sharing with you about our curriculum and classroom information at Curriculum Night tomorrow night from 6:00-8:15 pm for first through sixth grades. Please plan on joining us at this event, as we have very important information to share with you. If you would like an interpreter, please contact the office at 206.393.4130. We partner with parents in many ways including: PTA, Natural Leaders, Play and Learn, and WatchDOGs.

PTA: Please consider joining PTA to help support the many great programs that they pay for at LFP including free family events, classroom supplies, and field trips. Our PTA and district were kind enough to again fund the Taproot Theater group last Friday who taught us the three Rs of anti-bullying – recognize, refuse, and report. Ask your child what each of these words mean and which hand signals go with each word.

Natural Leaders: Natural Leaders serve as a multi-cultural bridge between students, families, communities, and LFP Elementary. They plan school wide events such as the Heritage Festival in December and El Dia Del Ninos in April. They also welcome new families to LFP. If you would like to join our Natural Leaders, please contact our family advocate, Katherine Barnard.

Play and Learn: All infants to five year olds and their care givers are welcome to join our free Play and Learn play group in the Loft with Susie Moore from 9:15-10:45 am Thursdays (new day this year), starting October 8th.

WatchDOGS (Dads of Great Students): Hope to see dads, step-dads, granddads, and uncles at our WatchDOG launch Tuesday, Oct. 6th at 6:00 pm. Bring your children for dinner and to sign up for a day of volunteering at our school. If you are not able to attend the event and would like to participate by spending an entire day volunteering at LFP as a WatchDOG, please contact the office to sign up for a day. We appreciate all of our incredible WatchDOGS!

Birthdays: We recognize every child’s birthday in the classrooms at LFP. We ask that you do not bring food treats for the class due to the many allergies and food sensitivities. Instead, we welcome a classroom or school library book donation to honor your child on their special day. Thank you.

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.
