Wrangling Families for Registration

Hello returning iLEAD Lancaster families!

As you may remember from last year, registration must be updated every school year. In an effort to be as efficient as possible, we are scheduling an appointment for every family to come in and update registration with us. This appointment will also provide the opportunity for you to learn more about our school such as calendar events, volunteer requirements and opportunities, valet cards and procedures, attendance guidelines, before- and after-school care, and so much more!

This is mandatory, and failing to update registration may affect your child’s enrollment status for the 2018-2019 school year.

Certain grade levels also need to submit documents before the school year begins:

First grade: Dental and physical assessment forms due

Seventh grade: Immunization record showing that the TDAP vaccination has been given

Also, if you have any new learners starting this year, we will need their birth certificate, immunization record, and IEP/504 if applicable. All documents must be brought to your registration appointment. If any items are missing, another appointment must be scheduled to complete registration. Please call us at (661) 722-4287 OR email our Registrar at brittany.ward@iLEADLancaster.org to schedule your registration appointment before school resumes.

Traffic is a BEAST! This is How We Slay…

Hello, parents! We encourage the use of VALET for all dropoff and pickup for safety reasons. K-4 is a busy commerce street and we value the safety of our learners! Remember, if you are not using valet, all children should be walked to the front door by their parent/guardian. Learners without a chaperone will warrant a call home.  

  • No learners will be released without a valet card and proper ID.
  • Please always enter our lots via driving eastbound on K-4, DO NOT turn left into our driveways and always pull as far to the right (curb) as you can get when using the valet line. PLEASE PULL TO THE CURB WHEN WAITING FOR VALET TO BEGIN. STAGGERING PICKUP PREVENTS A BACKUP DOWN AVENUE K-4. Blocking traffic is illegal. Please DO NOT park in our neighbors’ lots — your vehicle will be towed.
  • Be very mindful when choosing where to park when visiting our campus for any reason. If you need to drop off your learner and valet is over, please park and walk your learner in. Learners without a parent cannot be properly checked in late.
  • Please do not double-park or pull up and let your learner out in front of the school, ever. It is very dangerous.
  • Please remember that our neighbors are very supportive of our site — despite the impact we have on their daily operations — and that all of our neighbors love iLEAD. Let’s show them the same support by parking in iLEAD parking lots ONLY as well as not blocking driveways and always yielding to our neighbors when using valet.

If you need clarification as to where to park, please ask ANY iLEAD employee. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT TURNING LEFT INTO THE VALET ENTRANCE AND OUT OF THE EXIT IS A HAZARD TO BOTH YOUR VEHICLE AND OUR LEARNERS. IT IS ALSO A TRAFFIC PATTERN DISRUPTION.  

Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our learners and your vehicles safe!

About Those Heelys…

We’ve seen an influx of Heelys on campus. Learners are zipping along the halls and on the playspaces. While we LOVE fun and seeing our learners enjoying themselves, we have to ask that they don’t use the wheels while at school. Please understand this is a safety concern for learners and staff. We want to prevent accidents and keep everyone safe. Heelys brand shoes can be worn, just please remove the wheels for school.

General safety guidelines also include no skateboards or bicycles being ridden on campus; they must be carried and walked.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
