Be prepared for winter weather: Winter weather conditions sometimes prompt Fayette County Public Schools to alter routines or daily schedules in the district. Therefore, it is a good idea to decide in advance how best to keep up with the changes; What childcare arrangements are needed, how to adjust if school is delayed, and what to do if students are released early or schools are closed. Also, please make sure you child's school has up-to-date phone numbers and emergency contacts for your family.
Delayed start times are exact. For example: our doors open at 7:15 and school officially begins at 7:45...so a one hour delay means schools will not open until 8:15 and school will begin at 8:45. PLEASE DO NOT drop your child off before the school doors open. Please use the same drop off procedures as usual and allow extra time to get to school and through the car rider line. Students will be counted tardy if they arrive after school has started.
Please help us keep our students and staff healthy during this season!Click here for reminders on when to keep your child at home.
Family Engineering Night
Thursday, February 12th
As part of Family Engineering Night, Lansdowne will be hosting a new event called: Invention Convention. This is your childs opportunity to create, imagine, and build a brand new invention. Inventions can be brought back to school by Thursday, February 12th. Inventions will be on display in the library as well during Family Engineering Night. Inventions can be a working model (actually completes a function), a display model (does not function but gives a visual) or a diagram of what the invention might look like once it is built.
Inventions can be: Something that fulfills a need, something that solves a problem, something that is fun to use, something that can make something else work better
Congratulations to Lansdowne!
Lansdowne is one of 113 schools who received a KDE math grant for next year. Only 6 schools in Fayette County were chosen to receive this grant. Special thanks to Ms. Chamberlain and Ms. Adams for writing the grant that was chosen!
4th and 5th graders got to participate in a program called “Life is Cool” hosted by Donate Life Kentucky. Students spent several weeks learning about internal organs and how they function. They also learned about how nutrition and exercise play a major role in keeping their organ healthy. As a final event, Donate Life Kentucky brought in pig organs to demonstrate how the organ actually function. Please see the FCPS link below for the full article.
