CHRISTMAS CONCERT cartoon of children singing

The Albin Elementary School Christmas Program is on Thursday, December 10th, at 6:30 PM in the gym. Have you ever tried to put on a Christmas Musical?  This year, you will see how difficult it can be when the reindeer try to organize the elves, snowmen, and toys to help Santa finish his Christmas Musical! 

Inclement Weather Procedure

LCSD#2 will strive to have any school cancellations or late starts posted by 5:30 a.m. on the district website (www. Laramie2.org) followed by a district wide all-call. The media will be contacted shortly thereafter. Please check the district website before calling transportation dispatch, as this is a high call volume time. The website will contain the most up to date information.

The decision to delay or cancel school is taken very seriously by LCSD#2.  Many factors go into the decision, such as reports from the National Weather Service, State Patrol Traffic Management, various weather forecast and firsthand accounts from school personnel who assess the inclement weather and how it is affecting travel within our district boundaries and surrounding areas.

Closure/delay decisions will be made by LCSD#2 Superintendent Jon Abrams after all reports have been considered. It is LCSD#2’s intent to remain open as long as students can be transported safely to school.

Families and individuals are encouraged to make their own personal safety decisions based on the road conditions in their area.  School children will be given excused absences if a parent feels their route to school is not safe when their school is open

REMINDER

Friday, December 4, will be a regular school day for all students!
