General Information

Emergency Substitute Plans

Teachers are required to complete a substitute packet containing 3 days of
lesson plans and materials to be submitted to Ms. Smith within the first 3 weeks
of school. The packet can be accessed on the x drive and you were given a hard
copy the first day of school. These plans are to be utilized when a teacher is
unexpectedly out due to an emergency and cannot provide plans.

Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

It is expected that each teacher will take an active part in the PTA. Each teacher
is encouraged to pay the $3.00 membership fee so that she can be a voting
member of the association. The PTA will hold meetings throughout the year. In an
effort to increase parental involvement, each grade level will be responsible for
providing an activity at a PTA meeting. Please refer to the Master schedule for
your grade level assigned meeting. Faculty members are required to attend at
least one PTA meeting. It is recommended that one be active in the PTA if
requests are made of the PTA.


Teachers and paraprofessionals will use AESOP for substitutes. If you are unable
to get to AESOP, you are to call Monica Smith (985-687-1690) ASAP. Teachers
are responsible for finding another teacher to cover morning and afternoon duty
if they are absent on their duty day.

Professional Learning Communities

(formally known as Grade Level Meetings)

Collaboration /Grade Level Meetings will be held on Fridays.


Parent-Teacher Conferences

Parent teacher conferences are held either before or after school or during a
teacher’s planning time. Administrators are available to participate in
conferences when prior notice is given. Although it is the ultimate responsibility of
the parent to meet at a time when we have planning, this is not always possible.
You must make time either before or after school if circumstances dictate that this
is the only time conferences are possible.


Although videos can be a wonderful means of instruction, nothing replaces the
direct instruction provided by a teacher. With this in mind, the use of videos will be
limited to two hours per six weeks. The video request form must be submitted and
approved by the principal prior to showing the video. All videos must have a G
rating. Approval forms signed by the principal must be attached to the lesson plan
form for that week. Using the television as a morning management tool is
irreplaceable. Please select videos that are aligned to the current units being
taught in core areas.

Extra-Curricular Student Activities

Perfect Attendance

Perfect Attendance is defined as attendance at school from bell to bell every
day. Students will be rewarded each week for perfect attendance from the
previous week through the Super Student Program.

May Festival

One teacher per grade level will be assigned to organized May Festival. This
teacher must have taught at LES for 3 years.


Field Trips

Field trips will be limited to one per grade level per year. It must be taken
during the first semester of the school year, and it must serve an
educational purpose. It is the responsibility of the assigned grade level
personnel to plan and organize the field trip. The person that is chosen to plan
field trips must be a teacher with at least3 years of teaching experience at LES.

1. The field trip request form must be submitted to the principal 8 weeks before
the date of the trip, for his approval and signature. Once the principal has
returned the form, submit it to the central office ASAP, via blue bird.

2. Notify the cafeteria manager of the trip, with a preliminary head count no
later than 6weeks prior to the trip. Provide the cafeteria manager with a final
count at least 5 days before trip.

3. Secure buses for the trip. Students who ride lift buses must also be
transported; therefore if a child rides a lift bus, he or she must be given the
opportunity to go. If there are no buses willing to transport the child and the
parent does not want to transport the child, nor will he/she sign a waiver to
allow them to ride the regular bus, then no children may go on the trip. It is
the responsibility of the grade level teacher to complete special education
transportation request forms. See Mrs. Bickford, special education lead
teacher, for help.

4. All children with special needs, (medication, etc.) must also be considered
before planning a field trip. If their needs cannot be met the field trip cannot
be held. Therefore, contact the school nurse before the field trip form is sent
to Ms. Adams for approval.

5. Teachers must notify the Nurse of any students using medication the day
before the field trip so that the meds can be prepared for the teacher to pick
up the next morning.

6. If medications are needed, please see Ms. Smith to arrange for a medical
trained paraprofessional to attend the field trip.

7. We cannot take money for 2 field trips in the same grade level at the same


School Parties

The Tangipahoa Parish School System recognizes that children in Grades PK-2
should have a party twice a year. The two parties selected at Loranger
Elementary shall be at Christmas and Easter. Although parties are not allowed
in grades 3 and 4: the students will be given the opportunity to pass out treats in
their classrooms. Parties and passing out treats will last no more than one hour
and must be held at the end of the day. Students and parents must be made
aware that the students will have an opportunity to pass out treats. Passing out
treats in grades 3 and 4 is not optional. All students at our school will be allowed
treats on party days.

Parents may send treats on other occasions if arrangements are made with the
teacher. This should not last more than 20 minutes and will be allowed only after
2:00 or during scheduled snack or recess. Please be reminded that ONLY store
bought items may be served. Items must be individually wrapped unless it is a
cake, cupcakes or a sandwich tray but these items must still be store bought.

Pledge & Announcements

Each morning the pledge will be said in unison with a third or fourth grade
student leading it over the intercom. This will be followed by the recitation of the
mission statement and the PBIS Cheer. Teachers need to send only one
student to do the pledge, when two are together it is more confusing. Please
have students in the office prior to 8:00. Please make sure the child knows the
words to the pledge before sending them to say it. (Follow pledge schedule

Financial Issues

Supply Fees

placed in one account and divided equally among all teachers based on
students serviced and time serviced. This will allow for equality among
teachers with high parental participation and low participation. This will also
allow for monies to be channeled towards special education and special

Tentative Allotments will be placed in teacher accounts on or about
September 11, January 16, and April 9.

Procedure for Turning in Money

1. Each teacher will be given one-3 copy receipt books.

3. Give the child the pink copy and send the other 2 copies (still attached in
book) to the office with the money.

4. If you are collecting money for more than one purpose you must have
separate office receipts for each purpose. (Example, if you are collecting
May Fest, Supply Fee and Field Trip money, you will have three separate
receipts per student, turned into the office)

★ Textbooks are a very expensive asset. The loss of textbooks can be
quite costly to the school. Tangipahoa Parish School System dictates
that each school is responsible for maintaining textbook inventory. The
policy states that there is to be a textbook check every six weeks.

★ The librarian will distribute textbook inventory logs to each teacher for
completion and return.

★ It will be the homeroom teacher's’ responsibility to send the letter home
to the parent to notify them that the child has lost a book. No book can
be issued until the lost book is paid for. This includes the next reader in a
series, etc.

★ Upon completion of the textbook inventory for each six weeks, each
teacher must prove that they have made at least one phone contact
and two written contacts to prove they have attempted to have the
book returned. This will be due to the Librarian within one week of the

★ The Librarian will then attempt the same contact and turn the
information into Mrs. Adams by the end of the second week of the
inventory due date. This is a different piece of documentation than the
inventory log that will be turned into the library.

★ The included parent letter can be one piece of documentation.
