Registration for the 2015 - 2016 School Year Now Under Way
Are you new to the Lane community and need to enroll your child(ren) in school? Do you have a child who will be entering kindergarten in the fall? If the answer is "Yes" to either of these questions, please visit our General Registration page or our Kindergarten Registration page to begin the registration process.
During the summer break, you will be able to drop off paperwork in the school office, but the registration will not be completed until our registrar returns to work August 1st. She will review all paperwork received and contact you if a follow-up appointment is necessary.
Tours of the school, conducted by our Parent Liaison Melanie Crosby Hardy, will be offered periodically throughout the months of July and August. Specific dates will be posted soon.
New Bell Schedule for 2015 - 2016 School Year
Bell schedules across the county will be changing next year to accommodate the switch to earlier start times for high schools, which will start at 8 or 8:10 a.m. and dismiss at 2:45 or 2:55 p.m.; middle schools will start at 7:30 a.m. and end at 2:15 p.m. The elementary schools’ window remains unchanged, with elementary school students beginning their day between 8 and 9:20 a.m.
Lane’s start time will remain the same as this year – 9:15 a.m. Our dismissal time, however, will change slightly to 4 p.m. This extra five minutes is part of a county-wide initiative to make the length of the school day consistent across all schools at 6 hours and 45 minutes per day.
Would You Make a Good Watch D.O.G.?
If you are a father, grandfather, uncle, etc. of a current student, we would love to have you volunteer at Lane through our new program called Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great
Students). Check out our new Watch D.O.G.S. page for details.
