Message from the Superintendent
Welcome to the La Center School District and our webpage.
Welcome Back to the 2023-2024 School Year!
We are excited to start this new school year and welcome our new and returning students to an amazing school district! We have several updates I am excited to share with you. As a reminder, our number one goal is to focus on student learning. To that end, adult learning is also a component. I am very excited to share that our teachers and administrators have eagerly been participating in professional development throughout the summer as they continue to hone their skills to create the best possible learning environment for our students.
New Start Times
This is a reminder about the start times for the 23-24 school year.
Elementary (K-5) 7:45 am – 2:15 pm
Middle School (6-8) 8:50 am – 3:20 pm
High School (9-12) 8:45 am – 3:15 pm
This information was sent in May following a significant input process and I appreciate your patience as we all work together with these new start times.
As a reminder, the two main issues were bus capacity and lack of drivers to fill runs.
The Elementary ASK (After School Kids) Program is available for a fee to supervise students prior to being transported to the middle school for a ride home on the secondary bus. If you have questions please contact the district office.
After School Kids Program (ASK)
We offer supervision of students after school for elementary-age students. This is a fee-based program and students who are using the program regardless of the time will be charged a fee. The fees are based on the cost of the program and are established to be revenue neutral and only cover the cost of the ASK program. If you are planning on utilizing this program, you will need to register. Forms are available in the elementary office or print a copy from our website. Again, if there are questions, please contact the district office.
ASK Fees are block fees assessed regardless of the time spent in the program
AM = $6, Late Start Wednesday = $9
PM = $16
Early Release Days = $30
One Time Registration Fee = $35
Chromebook Assurance Program
Middle and High School Students Only
We have adopted an assurance program to help defray costs for lost or damaged Chromebooks. The cost is $15 per student and the attached information goes into greater detail regarding the program. Many districts in the area use an Assurance Program to defray the cost of repair and/or replacement. This is a secondary program only as elementary students do not take Chromebooks home. This is a voluntary program where each child is assessed a $15 fee that would cover some, if not all, costs associated with lost or damaged devices. The fee will show up automatically as a fee on the payment system and you are more than welcome to opt out, however, in the event of lost or damaged Chromebooks, the student would bear the full cost of the damage and/or replacement. Again, we have attached information to this email. If there are any questions please contact the District Office and we will be happy to help.
Thank you for all you do as parents, we are looking forward to the first day of school!
