Welcome Back LCS Students & Families

The 2021/22 school year is upon us! I would like to welcome our new families and staff. We are excited to begin a new year of profound learning and many new adventures.  It has been great to see children’s faces and excitement throughout the week as we begin the new year. Together, we will make this a safe, successful and enjoyable school year! If you ever have any questions or concerns, please contact me.

Kind Regards, Mrs. Clobes
