JUMP START FOR KINDERGARTEN
August 17- 21,  2015

Please register by clicking on the link below:

Lafayette Jump Start Registration Link


--------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Lafayette School Community:
Lafayette Elementary will be able to offer full-day kindergarten at no fee to families beginning this fall.

As you may know, Washington State only funds half-day kindergarten for most schools. The state, however, makes an exception for schools in which at least 50 percent of students qualify for free or reduced-price meals. For those schools, the state covers full-day kindergarten.
In Seattle Public Schools, the district has been able to cover additional schools using Learning Assistance Program (LAP) dollars. LAP funding has been applied to schools in which at least 25 percent of students qualify for free or reduced-price meals. In the 2014-15 school year, for example, the district has been able to use LAP funding to offer fee-free full-day kindergarten in 17 additional schools, but Lafayette did not qualify.
In the 2015-16 school year, the Learning Assistance Program funding threshold has been dropped to 20 percent. Due to changes in our student population and the new threshold, Lafayette now qualifies for the Learning Assistance Program funding.
This means families who would like their children to attend full-day kindergarten at Lafayette will no longer need to pay an annual fee.
Please go to the Admissions tab on SeattleSchools.org to learn more about kindergarten enrollment and find contact information for Enrollment Services.

If you have any questions, please contact Enrollment Services or our office.
Sincerely,
 
Robert Gallagher
Principal
Lafayette Elementary

Announcement to families

 

Dear Lafayette Families,

Our school’s new door buzzer has been installed and is fully operational.  Beginning Monday, May 11, 2015 the front door will be locked from 9:10 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. in the afternoon.  If you need access to the building during these hours you must use the door buzzer, and office staff will grant access once your identity has been verified.  This new system will not impact morning drop-off or afternoon pick-up.  The outside gates will be locked from 9:35 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. daily. Outside gates will be unlocked for afterschool pick-up and locked again at 4:00 p.m. daily.  Thank you for your support in keeping safety a priority in our community.

Thanks,

 Dr. Christine Ybarra
Assistant Principal
Lafayette Elementary School
