    A: Please check the Nurse's webpage for weekly updates about current health concerns at Lakeway Elementary. Click on “Nurse” under site shortcuts on the main LWE webpage, then click on “What’s going around at LWE?”


    Q:  What do I do when my child is absent from school?  What do I do if my child has a medical appointment?

    A:  Attendance is taken each day at 10:00 am. If your child leaves campus before, or comes in after, 10:00 am they are considered absent for the day. Call the school and report your child’s absence every time that they are out. Send a note when they return to school. This may be a written note, email, or doctor’s note if you had a medical appointment. A doctor's note is required after 5 days.

    If your child has a medical appointment during the school day and attends school before or after the appointment, a note from the health care provider must be submitted when the student returns to school. This ensures the student can be counted as present for the day of the appointment.

    Regular school attendance is essential for a student to make the most of his/her education. Students and parents should make every effort to avoid unnecessary absences.


    Q:  What is extended care? How do I register?
