As you know your child's safety is our number one priority. Given recent events, there will be an increase in police and security presence at Larkspur Elementary.
In preparation for our end-of-year events and celebrations, we will have pre-printed name badges for each person that has already been logged into our Raptor System. Please email Erin Keefe-Feinner firstname.lastname@example.org or Kristin Wehri at email@example.com. by Wednesday, May 22nd at noon indicating which of the following events you plan on attending:
Thursday, May 23rd 6th grade graduation
Friday, May 24th Kindergarten graduation
Pre-printed name badges will be located at the front office. We are asking that you wear your badge at all times while in the building and only use the main entrance. Please note that staff members may approach you if your badge is not visible. We also ask that you do not hold the door open for other parents or community members as they to need to check in at the office using the Raptor System. If you are dropping of any items for your teacher or student, please leave the items with our amazing office staff and they will ensure this gets to the right place.
You may wish to complete the Raptor check in process prior to these events if you have not done so previously to avoid lines. Bring your ID into the front office to complete this process. We thank you for your cooperation! Please feel free to contact the office if you have any questions or concerns.
We are sad to see the following employees leave Larkspur due to retirement and staffing adjustments based on enrollment.
Retirements: Good Luck on your future endeavors in retirement land. We at Larkspur are so grateful for all you have done for our amazing students and school community! Good Luck Barb Eckert and Chris Arnesen. We will miss you!!
Staffing adjustments: We are so sad to have to say good bye. Educational Assistance are angels in disguise. We have been so blessed to have Stephani Heppenstall and Kelly Lawson serve our student and staff community. Your hard work and dedication to our students and staff does not go unnoticed.
