District Requirements for Volunteer Clearances

Anyone wishing to volunteer during school hours or during field trips are required to obtain clearances.  Please clink on the links below to obtain these clearances:

(*Please note ~ clearances are not paid for by the school district).

When you receive ALL the necessary clearances and complete the volunteer application, you may submit copies to the Letort office beginning August 10, 2015.

Clearances will remain valid with the district as long as you volunteer at least once per school year, for up to three years.  All clearances MUST BE RENEWED every three years to continue as a volunteer in the district.  The date for renewal is determined by the date of your “oldest” clearance or the one you received “first.”  For example, if your clearances were dated October 5 and November 23, those clearances would need renewed by October 5.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the office.

A few goodbyes and a GREAT big welcome


With the conclusion of the 2014-2015 school year, come a few changes to the staff of Letort Elementary.  As many of you know, we are saying a fond farewell to Mrs. Egan (Kindergarten), Mr. Fitzkee (4th Grade), and Mrs. Bachman (School Nurse).  I know Letort will simply not be the same without their smiling faces each day.

We are also welcoming some new faces to Letort.  Mrs. Julie Hoin will be teaching our kindergartners and Mrs. Debra Beighley will be teaching 5th grade while Mrs. Lisa Suydam returns to 4th grade.  I will be working on a replacement for Mrs. Bachman ~ more on that later!  I know that students, parents, and staff will welcome Mrs. Hoin and Mrs. Beighley with open arms.

Welcome to the LETORT Team!

Summer Reading Fun

passportEvery child in grades K-5 should have brought home a Summer Reading SUN BOOKPassport to keep track of their summer reading.  Any student who has at least 33 stamps when they return in August will earn a free treat at Rita’s, served by our teachers and principal.   If your child did not bring home a reading ‘passport’, or if you do not know where it is, you may still join in the fun by clicking on the link below.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call the school office by June 12th.
