Future Meetings at Kloefkorn

Until further notice, we will be unable to host in-person meetings in the building. This includes SAP, 504, IEP and MDT meetings. If you already have a meeting scheduled for your child, you can expect a zoom link to be sent prior to the meeting date/time.

 Permit Deadline – January 5th 

What is a permit?

A permit is required when you live outside of your home school attendance area. You can always check to see which attendance area you are assigned to by going to the LPS Home School Lookup page. If your children are currently at Kloefkorn on a permit  you do not need to complete a new permit.

Outgoing 5th grade Students- If your student(s) attend Kloefkorn on  permit and you have an outgoing 5th grade student you will likely need to complete a permit for middle school by January 5th. Go to the LPS Home School Lookup page to see which attendance area and plan accordingly. If you would like to attend a school outside your attendance area for middle school you will  need to complete a permit by January 5th.

Personal Computing Devices

This time of year often brings questions about whether students are allowed to use personal computing devices instead of the district issued Chromebook. Where completing school work or participating in class is concerned, the answer to this question is “no.” There are a number of reasons for this, but you should be aware that the LPS Chromebook comes with limits on the web sites that can be visited and the applications that can be accessed, even when the Chromebook is at home. You can support teachers’ efforts in managing a consistent learning environment by encouraging your student to use the district issued Chromebook.
