Message from Principal Thompson

Stallion Families,

Hope you're enjoying your first week of summer!  

As I communicated a few weeks ago, we have worked hard to finalize class lists for the 2021-2022 school year!  If you enrolled by June 1st for the upcoming school year, we sent you a postcard THIS WEEK with your stallion's new teacher for next school year! 

(If you do not receive a postcard, this information will be available to you by August 10th on the Parent Portal platform.)

As a reminder, the process of placing our students in their new homeroom classes is very important to us! While I know that some parents may be asking for class changes, unfortunately we cannot make any adjustments for homerooms. We must consider the parent and teacher input provided in the spring to meet each child’s unique needs, as well as the even distribution of students in each class. As the school year begins in August, we ask that you use the following campus procedure to address any concerns.

1. First, reach out to the teacher directly with any concerns or needs regarding your child's experiences. We are all learning together and there will be an adjustment period.

2. If after reaching out to your teacher you still have concerns, please reach out directly to their administrator: 

LeAnna Bentley: Leamiller@dallasisd.org (3rd -5th) 

To Be Announced this summer (K-2nd) 

Don't forget to check out our "Meet your Teacher" videos on flipgrid below, and we will be posting this to Lakewoodelementary.net soon. Thank you for your understanding of our school policy and supporting us as we prep for the upcoming school year!

Stallion Strong,

Principal Thompson
