Lafayette Weekly Update (August 16).

Courtney Wheeler

Dear Lafayette families,

Thank you for an excellent start to the school year.  It was wonderful to see and hear our students throughout the hallways as they reconnected with friends and teachers.  

We are still working to make adjustments to our arrival and dismissal procedures.  We appreciate your continued patience as we work to ensure the process runs more smoothly and quickly.  

Please be reminded of the following afternoon pick-up procedures:

It is important that you notify the school office if your child’s afternoon procedure is going to change.  Please submit a transportation change by using the link list below, by sending a note with your child or via fax.  The note or fax must include the name of the student, the change, the dates affected, parent/guardian signature, and telephone number where the parent/guardian can be reached.  If you fax or email the change, it is REQUIRED that you call the school office to confirm your request was received.  No changes will be accepted via the telephone.  All changes must be made by 2:30 PM.

Students who are picked up early in the office must be picked up by 2:30 PM. No cars are permitted to the front of the building between 2:30 PM and 3:30 PM so that the car rider dismissal process runs smoothly.

Reminder that visitors are not permitted beyond the front office and will be required to wear a mask in the main office complex.  

Guidance regarding safety is available on our website: COVID Information - Fredericksburg City Schools (

Let us know if there is anything we can do to support your family.  Call our office to let us know how to help: 540-310-0029

See you bright and early!
