Thank you to members of the LMS Diversity Cadre for hosting the first of the new quarterly Courageous Dialogues for parents.  This occurred Thursday evening in the Cafeteria, and included members of the St. Louis Mother to Mother group.  The topic was “the reality of raising a Black son in America.”

Good afternoon.  I hope that your weekend has gone well.
Two quick reminders: As previously communicated, I do not have staff assigned to the Lobby (and stationed to let students into the building) until 7:15 am.  In my movements through the building each morning, I let students in if they are waiting outside the doors.  This cannot always happen, as I am often tied up in something else, in a morning meeting, or am sometime absent from school.  With warmer weather right now, this may not be an issue, but in January it can be.  Please time your arrivals to deliver students to school beginning no earlier than 7:15 am. Turning left out of our campus onto Clayton Road in the morning can be dangerous as traffic comes around a blind corner.  It also stops the line of traffic attempting to exit by making a much-appreciated right-hand turn.  Please turn right onto Clayton - thank you.  
CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU’s
