  • LPS Connect System Screens Visitors to LPS Buildings

    With the start of the 2018-2019 academic year, Littleton Public Schools is introducing LPS Connect, a new lobby check-in procedure at every school to improve building safety procedures. The first phase of the LPS Connect system will focus on volunteer monitoring. Later this year, after the system is fully implemented, a visitor management component will run a background check on every visitor using a driver’s license reader during check-in. Visitors will need to show a drivers license or government ID for the system to review their status. The software will also log where visitors are going and provide another layer to the security systems that LPS already has in place.   When fully installed, every visitor or volunteer entering an LPS school will check in at the LPS Connect kiosk before proceeding to any classroom or other location on campus. Guy Grace, Director of Security and Planning for Littleton Public Schools, wants guests to be patient with the changes. “When you visit an LPS school this year, you will be asked to do some things differently when you check in. Remember, this is a work in progress, and the fully implemented system and procedures are designed to make sure we have a safe school environment while not impeding a school visit.” Once cleared, visitors will receive a name tag or badge that they are required to wear while on campus. School volunteers can register online and have a full background check completed before receiving a badge, which is valid for the school year. This new system also replaces the paper system previously used for tracking volunteer hours. “This adds another level of security for our kids, staff and parents,” said Michael Jones, Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources. “We continue to make safety and security our number one priority. We know this will take some time to adjust to the change, so we appreciate everyone’s patience as we make the district-wide transition.”

  • New Bus Stops and Routes for 2018-2019

    We are excited to transport our students to and from school again this year!  Ridership is up, and we can't wait to get started!  Please remember that beginning this fall, school start times have changed for all students. In order to accommodate larger ridership, find efficiencies, and accommodate the new school start times, many bus stops and routes have changed.  Please check the Transportation tab in your Infinite Campus Parent Portal for your child's bus stop location and route number for the 2018-2019 school year.  We hope you had a wonderful summer, and we look forward to seeing you soon!

  • Lenski PTO Thank Yous and Shout Outs!

    The PTO would like to thank Stephanie Wilcox for organizing and coordinating with all the room parents this year.  Stephanie did a great job recruiting at least two room parents for every classroom and presented a lot of information to the volunteers last week in an effort to ensure all parents have everything necessary to stay well informed and teachers are recognized for all their hard work with your kiddos!   On that same note, we would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all those that have volunteered to be room parents this year!  They have to do a lot of coordinating and "behind the scenes" work to keep everyone aware of what is happening in the school and your classrooms in particular! On behalf of the entire Lenski community, we would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to Erik and Sara Bechtold and Sign Language for creating and DONATING all of the Lenski calendar magnets.  We are so appreciative and love having a quick reference for the major happenings involving the school.  You should have received a magnet by now (they went out to youngest and only children), but if you have not received one and would like one, please contact Lenskipto@gmail.com.

  • Sprinting for the Stars - Off and Running!

    Friday, September 28th    Between 8:15 am - 10:25 am         Lenski students were treated to a special Pep Rally today to kick off  "Sprinting for the Stars".  Thank you to the Arapahoe High School TOMS and Cheerleaders for making it memorable!  The kids are bringing home their pledge sheets today and ready to start raising funds for Lenski!  (and for Prizes!!) What is Sprinting for the Stars? Our biggest fundraiser of the year!  Students will ask family, friends and neighbors to sponsor them by either donating a flat amount or a dollar amount per lap.  Students will run/walk as many laps as possible around a 1/8th mile track on the Lenski field for up to 30 minutes.  This is shorter than last year - so adjust pledges accordingly!!  Students will bring home their lap cards and collect the money pledged. Once the money is collected, prizes will be awarded to the students.  Please remember to have SEPARATE pledge sheets and envelopes for each child!      Where will the money go?   All funds will go toward PTO's ongoing support of Lenski's staffing budget.  This support supplements our district-apportioned funding and improves Lenski's ability to provide differentiated, small-group learning for ALL Lenski students.  It is also used to make building and classroom improvements.  Through all of our efforts, Lenski is able to provide a learning experience that far exceeds what the district funds!   What is our goal?   Help us reach our goal of $80,000.  100% of all donations go to Lenski!   What do the students gain from this experience? A fun race day, an emphasis on healthy lifestyle through exercise, and a chance to earn prizes by reaching fundraising goals with pledges!    Race Times 8:15 am - 8:45 am Kindergarten (lunch 10:50)  8:35 am - 9:05 am  1st Grade (lunch 10:15)  8:55 am - 9:25 am  2nd Grade (lunch 10:25)  9:15 am - 9:45 am  3rd Grade (lunch 10:35)  9:35 am - 10:05 am  4th Grade (lunch 11:00)  9:55 am - 10:25 am  5th Grade (lunch 11:10)    We will see you there!
