American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Funding
Laramie County School District #2 is happy to announce the acceptance of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds (ARRA funds) approved for school districts.
All parents have the right to request information about the qualifications of their child's teacher(s). Please contact Jon Abrams, Superintendent, at 245-4050 for more information.
Every child in LCSD#2 will have equal access to a free and appropriate public education (FAPE), including public preschool education. Children who are homeless have the same rights to FAPE as provided to other children and youth, and the District is committed to assuring that those rights are fully protected and honored. (LCSD#2 Code: JECB)
The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Improvements Act of 1987, reauthorized in December 2001 as Title X, Part C of the No Child Left Behind Act, and most recently re-authorized in December 2015 by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), defines the term "homeless children and youth" as individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.
- Children and youth who are:
- Sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason (sometimes referred to as “Doubled-up”;
- living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camping grounds due to the lack of alternative adequate accommodations;
- living in emergency or transitional shelters; or abandoned in hospitals;
- Children and youths who have a primary nighttime residence that is a public or private place not designed for or ordinarily used as a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings;
- Children and youths who are living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations, or similar settings; and
- Migratory children who qualify as homeless because they are living in circumstances described above.

School Attendance Area
The Board of Trustees believes that children learn best when they are in an environment which is comfortable for them. We believe their designated attendance area affords that comfort level for them. All students are urged to attend that school in the area in which they reside. Those children who desire to attend schools within the district outside their residential areas may do so. For more information please refer to section JC of the Policies and Procedures Handbook for more information.
MSDSonline is a database to provide all staff with a ready resource for documentation of chemicals and products in use at our facilities. Please click here for the MSDS Sheet Search.
A material safety data sheet (MSDS) is a document required by FEMA and OSHA that provides information on the safe handling, use, storage, and disposal of potentially hazardous chemicals. International compliance is moving toward the use of a GHS (Global Harmonization Standard) Safety Data Sheet (SDS). MSDS documentation is slowly adapting to the new GHS-SDS standard, and you may find both versions on our database.
If you have a request for an MSDS/GHS-SDS sheet you do not find, or if you have a product for which we need to add an MSDS/GHS-SDS, please contact Kim Nelson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to comply with the EPA Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), we are posting this notice of activities, dealing with known or suspect asbestos-containing materials, being performed in our school buildings. The district is required to annually notify employees, building occupants, and legal guardians about asbestos activities. These activities include 6-month periodic surveillance, 3-year re-inspections, response actions that will be performed, and the availability of the plan.
A Management Plan containing locations of known or suspect materials is on file. The Administration Office has a copy that is available to be viewed during working hours (7:30am-4:00pm, Monday-Friday). Each school office has a copy of the portion of the plan involving that school's buildings. In school offices, the plan is available during normal school hours (7:30am-4:00pm Monday-Thursday) when school is in session.
During each calendar year, the district performs periodic surveillance semi-annually to examine the current condition of any known or suspect materials. Our most recent independent 3 year inspection was completed in March 2017.
If you have questions, please direct them to: Kim Nelson, Facilities Dept., 307-245-4081. This individual is our Designated Person, and as such is responsible for our compliance with the AHERA regulation.
