Tardy Policy

Students are expected to be seated in class when the tardy bell rings. If a student is late to school, he/she is required to check in with the attendance office before going to class. Frequent tardiness without a valid excuse is considered truancy under state law. You may view your student attendance and tardy records by logging into SchoolLoop and clicking on the attendance tab or through the Student and Parent Portals.

Dear Lions,


This week, our LRMS News Crew talks about important topics like how to deal with stress, the importance of being on time to class, and not having phones out during school. We also feature a segment where we ask LRMS kids what subjects they wish they could learn in school and we have some fun showing what happens when kids try foreign foods! We wrap it all up with a thorough overview of our UPcoming UP SPIRIT WEEK! 


Don't miss out on these important stories! Please tune in with your students during ROAR today!

Student and Parent Concerns:


A Message from your LRMS PE Clothes Committee:  

We are looking forward to the Parent Information Night for all incoming 6th grade families on Monday, February 26, 2018 at 6:00pm in the MPR.  Current students at LRMS and incoming 6th graders from all of our elementary schools were able to vote on the new logo that will be placed onto our new PE clothing coming in soon.  Samples of these new items will be available for viewing only at the Information Night. There will not be a pre-sale of these clothing items on that night since we are still waiting on the new shipment to arrive.  We will be hosting a sale of the current inventory on April 12th at the LRMS Open House event for all current LRMS students.  When the new logo apparel arrives, we will set a specific date in May for 6th grade families to purchase the new items. All of the new logo attire will also be available for purchase by all grade levels at the three August Registration Dates (Aug. 7th,8th,9th).  Students will still be able to wear the old logo items, but all incoming orders will have the new logo.  Students may wear either logo items as we transition to the new stock. Please keep in mind that sales of LRMS PE clothes is the largest PTA fundraising effort for our school.  When you purchase PE Clothes, you are donating to our school's programs for your children so that they may experience the best in their education.  Thank you for your continued enthusiasm and support!


6TH GRADE PARENTS: Immunization Requirement for students entering 7th Grade. In order to avoid long lines at orientation, current 6th grade families should to bring a copy of their updated Immunization Record to the office prior to the end of the year if you haven’t already.


To enroll in classes for 7th grade, your child must be fully immunized or have a permanent or temporary medical exemption on file with your child’s school. Per state law, 7th grade students cannot have personal beliefs exemptions.


To avoid the back-to-school rush, we suggest you make plans prior to the end of the school year for your child to receive the necessary immunizations, or speak with your physician regarding permanent or temporary medical exemptions. Only a licensed Medical Doctor (MD) or Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) may provide a medical exemption. Included in the required immunizations is the Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis booster required for 7th grade. The booster may have been given any time after the 7th birthday.


Please bring your child’s Immunization Record and/or specific medical exemptions from your physician, to your child’s school health office as proof of immunization. School staff will photocopy the Immunization Record and enter the information in the district student data base. Your child will not be able to attend classes in 7th grade without proof of immunization or medical exemption on file with us for all required immunizations. For more information regarding the immunization requirements for 7th grade you may visit . This site addresses immunizations required for all 7thgrade students including those who had a personal beliefs exemption in 6th grade or are new to the state.
