August 11, 2014
Beginning Monday, August 25, 2014, please come to the Lopatcong Elementary School to pick up your child’s Back- To-School Packet. The Back-To-School Packet will contain arrival and dismissal information, your child’s homeroom teacher, transportation information (if applicable), and additional forms that need to be filled out and returned on the first day of school. The packet will replace the letters/packets that have been mailed home in previous years. The Lopatcong Elementary School Office is open from 8:00am-3:30pm Monday through Thursday. Packets can be picked up between Monday, August 25, 2014 and Tuesday, September 2, 2014 by parents and/or guardians.
Please see the attached information regarding arrival and dismissal of car rider students. The third page of the attached document is a form that needs to be filled out and returned in order for you to pick up your child’s packet at the elementary school. This procedure is to ensure the safety and security of all students. It will also help us properly dismiss students throughout the school year. (If your child had a Car Rider number last year, they will have the same number this year. You must still fill out the attached form.)
