Celebrating Our Leadership

It was assistant principal appreciation week, and we were able to celebrate Mrs. Chicas and all the hard work she does at Shark Nation with a lunch and a few other little surprises. Thanks for all you do for our families and staff Mrs. Chicas!

School Choice 2021–2022

The school choice window is now open! Please take some time to discuss all the options with your children. If you haven't, we encourage you to watch the school choice video that briefly explains all the programs at our schools. You can find that video on our Enrollment Information page. If you have an interest in the LESD Online Academy, we have a video that has more information on our LESD Online page.

It is important that we hear from you, as we are setting our staffing at each school based on your choice. Choose carefully as you are choosing for the year.

We understand that this could be a difficult decision which is why we are opening the window for two weeks. The window will close on April 7 at 4:30 p.m. If you do not make a selection, we will place your child where space is available. You will need your child's ID number to complete this process. We will list your child's 2021–2022 school on your child's 4th quarter report card.
