Dear Ladera Ranch Middle School Lions,
No School on Monday!  Our teachers will be working to further develop and implement common core state standards to Capistrano Unified classrooms so there is no school for students on April 21, 2014.  The LRMS office will be closed as well.
LRMS is looking for Career Day Presenters:  Career Day will be held this year on Thursday, May 22nd 2014. We are currently filling presenter slots and asking for volunteers to share their profession with our students. The time commitment would be from 8am-11:30am on that Thursday. The presenters will be rotating through 8th grade classrooms and will give between four and six 20 minute presentations. If you’d like to volunteer, or have any questions, please contact our School Counselor Julie Chutuk at 949-234-5922 or by email at We’d love to have you share your career with our students. Thanks!
The warm weather of spring and the excitement of summer provides the perfect platform to remind our students and families of the LRMS Dress Code Standards.
All students need to arrive at LRMS dressed in accordance to the LRMS Dress Code Standards as outlined in the Student Agenda. 
Unfortunately, students who do not meet dress code standards may miss class instruction while they change into suitable clothes.  Multiple offenses will also result in appropriate and progressive consequences.
To ensure your child comes to school every day in adherence to the Dress Code Standards, please carefully review all the Dress Code Standards as listed in the Student Agenda.  Additionally, review with your child the “typical” Dress Code Infractions listed below:
1.     Shirts and tops MUST cover to the top of waist band without having to be pulled down
2.    All tops must completely cover the shoulder area, the “2 inch rule”; therefore NO bra straps are visible at any time.  More of a “sleeveless” top than a “tank top.”  Multiple tops can be layered to cover the shoulder.
3.    Shorts, skirts, dresses and long tops MUST extend to mid-thigh  and remain modest when seated.
4.    Tight, revealing attire (such as yoga pants and leggings) must be worn under a dress, skirt or very long top that completely covers the rear-end.  
5.    No hoods, hats, head covering or ear buds.
7th graders need a Whooping Cough Shot.  Get your child’s Tdap Immunization NOW!  For the 2014-2015 school year, and all future school years, all students entering, advancing or transferring into 7th grade will need proof of an adolescent whooping cough booster immunization (called “Tdap”) for school in the fall.  Do ALL 7th grade students need to get the pertussis immunization? Yes. All students going into 7th grade must have proof of having had the Tdap booster shot. This includes current students, new students and transfer students in both public and private schools. Many students have already received the vaccine and simply need to supply proof to the school, so check with your doctor or provider.
