Thank Yous

LEPAC would like to thank administration and all parents who attended our meeting on Wednesday, January 29th.  It is always such a great way to connect as a community and discuss together how we can support our children’s education.  Looking forward to our next meeting on February 19th so mark you calendars!!!

Thank you to Amy for coordinating all parent volunteer efforts at Lochside.  Our many events would not be successful if it weren’t for her dedication of time and energy in organizing and communicating our volunteer needs.  Way to go Amy!!!!

Message from Administration

The entrance doors adjacent to the Lochside Trail are locked for safety and security.  Please do not attempt to gain access by knocking and encouraging passing students to open the doors for you.  All parents coming into the building should check in at the front office. Please inform your family members who help out with drop-offs and pick-ups of this safety procedure.  At dismissal at 2:48, students in Grades 2 and up can meet family members outside at an agreed upon spot on the playground or side yard.


Ready to run.....

Lochside Elementary has a team for the TC 10km coming up April 26, 2020.  We can get customized team t-shirts, but need to have a minimum of 10 members in the team by March 31st.  If you've already registered and want to be added to the Lochside team, you can transfer yourself on the Race Roster.
