Intruder Drill

Part of my job, as principal, is to keep parents informed of daily events that occur at LeTort Elementary.  Over the past few days, teachers have reviewed our procedures for an intruder drill (lock-down) with our children and this morning, we put those procedures into place.  I want to share that the students and staff did a tremendous job during the course of the drill.  As I walked the hallways, all students and staff were quiet and all procedures were followed promptly and accurately.  All 276 students were accounted for during the drill.

I encourage you tonight over dinner or during homework time to discuss this drill with your child(ren).  If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.


We need your help!

k12532526 boy-running-clipart-boy_running_3  Tomorrow is Laps for LeTort  and an early dismissal at 1:30.  Both AM and PM Kindergarten classes will be attending so all students are able to participate in the Laps event.  This means that the kindergartners may ride the bus to and from school.

Please be sure your child is dressed for walking outside.  If your child earned a Laps for LeTort shirt, they should wear that.

PE Day (Grades 1-6) is Tomorrow!


Please remember tomorrow, May 12th, is our PE Day for grades 1-6.  Primary grades (1-3) will participate in the morning and intermediate grades (4-6) will participate in the afternoon.  Please make sure that your child is dressed appropriately with sneakers.  We encourage sunscreen and a water bottle with your child’s name clearly labeled.

It will be a great day at Letort!

Lunch Lady Hero Day – May 1st

Mrs. Gerlach and Mrs. Charles are the best Lunch Ladies a school could have.  They work hard every day to make sure the LeTort students and staff are well fed, and they do it with such a kind and friendly attitude.  To honor them on their special day, several students wrote them thank you letters and said an extra special thank you when they went through the lunch line.  The staff gave each of them a LUNCH LADY apron and book.
