Dear Students and Parents,       

We are excited to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year at Lake Whitney Elementary School.  The first day of school is Monday, August 12, 2019.  Our school hours are from 8:45 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.  School hours are from 8:45 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Wednesdays.  Please visit our school website for the most current school information.

We encourage you to attend “Meet your Teacher” on Friday, August 9, 2019 from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Our teachers will introduce themselves with an automated phone call earlier that week and the class rolls will be posted in our front window on Friday as well. PTO memberships and t-shirts will be available for purchase during Meet your Teacher.  Agendas will also be available for $5.  For students who pre-ordered their supplies last spring, the agenda is included in the package.

 When visiting your child’s classroom, be sure to pick up stickers to place on your child for the first week of school.  Please help us ensure the safety of all of our students by placing these stickers on your child for the entire first week of school.  Not only will these stickers serve us to identify your child, they also indicate how your child will go home.  For bus transportation information, please visit > Quick Links > Find a Bus.

Lake Whitney is a wonderful school largely due to the great working relationship between teachers and parents.  There will be opportunities for parents (and grandparents) to volunteer at our school.  However, all volunteers must first register as an OCPS ADDitions Volunteer.  All volunteers must complete a new application each school year.  For the online application, please visit > Quick Links > Volunteer > ADDitions School Volunteers > Volunteer Now! 

Please visit the OCPS Back to School page for information and resources as the new school year approaches. 

We look forward to seeing you and are excited to begin another great year!

 Elizabeth A. Prince, Ed. S.
