    Dr. DaMaris A. White,
    Dear Laclede Family,

    I want to officially welcome all of you to the 2019-2020 School Year!  I hope that you had a restful                     and enjoyable summer, and that you are looking forward to an amazing upcoming school year.                                 I anticipate an electrifying year as we collectively strive to foster a culture of academic achievement                      in a positive, nurturing, and safe learning environment where diviersity is valued, respected, and                  celebrated. I feel extremely fortunate to be working with such an exceptional group of students,                              families, and staff members. 

    This year we will continue to be intentional about changing the narrative for our scholars.  We are                evermore committed to providing the best education possible to our Laclede scholars.  As we embark                      upon another school year, the staff and I are eager to continue to grow and learn as educators with                  excellence and the desire to help your children develop the skills necessary to be a successful student                    and world citizen. 

    I am thrilled to welcome back many of our outstanding staff and to welcome our new colleagues                            to Laclede!


    Our school day begins at 8:05AM every day. Please be sure to have your child/children here on time.          Students who are consistently tardy are at a clear disadvantage and usually arrive feeling frantic and          unprepared. All students who arrive after 8:35am must sign in at the office with a parent. If your child                      is sick please report the absence by 9:30am by calling the school (314)385-0546.  

    Our school day adjourns at 3:02PM.  Please report on time to the designated location to pick up                          your children. 


    Because it is so important that teachers and parents work together in making a child’s school year a                 happy and successful one, it is hoped that you will be able to spend some time during the school year                      helping in the classroom or at home. Please discuss with your child’s teacher, ways that will work                            within your schedule.   

    We look forward to seeing all of you this fall. If you have any questions related to school policy and          procedures, schedules, etc., please feel free to notify the main office at 314.385.0546.
