Welcome to Lorane Elementary School
Office hours are from 8:15AM – 4:15PM.
We are excited to kick off the 2019-2020 school year. We have included helpful information for our families as we prepare for the first day of school on Monday, August 26, 2019. Please review all the information enclosed and if you have any questions, please contact us at 610-582-8608.
SCHOOL DAY 9:00AM – 3:40PM
Students enter the building at 8:50AM. Students will be marked tardy if they arrive to school after 9:00am. If your child arrives late, you must accompany them to the office and sign them in. Students who come to school after 12:15pm will be marked for a half-day absence.
To report a student absent, dial 610-582-8608 and press 2. This does not replace a signed written excuse. Please send in a signed note with your child within 5 days of the absence. If your child is absent 3 consecutive days, a doctor’s note is required to excuse the absence. Emails sent to LORattendance@exetersd.org will now be accepted from a previously registered email address with the district to excuse an absence.
Students will board buses at the front of the building at DISMISSAL.
Students being picked up by private vehicles at the end of the day will exit through the gym lobby.
There will be no parking in the front of the building from 3:30PM-4:00PM and there will be NO student sign out from the office lobby after 3:30PM.
Our cafeteria serves both breakfast and lunch. Breakfast is served from 8:50 – 9:05AM.
- Breakfast $1.50 **prices may change for 2019-2020
- Lunch $2.65 **prices may change for 2019-2020
Parents are encouraged to pre-purchase 10 lunches at a time. Each student is assigned a pin number, which keeps a running total of how much lunch money is left in the student’s account. Checks should be made payable to Exeter Township School District Cafeteria Fund.
If your child’s transportation plans should ever need to change from the established routine, please be sure to send a note to the child’s teacher to help ensure that you child reaches the proper destination. Phone calls and e-mails will not be accepted. Requests for changes of bus stops must be done by filling out a district bus change request form 5 days in advance of the change. No more than one pick up/drop off stop will be approved for each student.
Parents, K-12, have access to Skyward. Skyward provides parents with a secure database of all student information. Skyward can be used to view academic progress, daily attendance, upcoming assignments, teacher messages, and much, much more. You only need one username to access all your children. To obtain your username and password, simply contact the building where your child is enrolled. Security is very important to the district. Secretaries will need to verify information or ask that you visit the office to obtain your login information.
