Dear Parents and Stakeholders,
My name is Clifford Owens and I am the new principal of Lake Forest South Elementary School. There are a lot of great things going on at South and I am so excited to be a part of the school community.
Let me tell you a little about myself. I have over twenty years of experience working with students in the capacity of a guidance counselor; social worker; mental health clinician, special education teacher, assistant principal, and principal. I have experience working in an urban and rural setting.
It is our goal to have everyone fully registered and ready to begin class on Monday August, 31, 2015. The first day of school is a full day for students in grades 1-3 from 8:25 a.m. until 3:10 p.m. The office staff will be available to assist you with registration. Kindergarten students will have a staggered start. You will receive a letter notifying you when your child will attend school. Our school office hours are 8:00 am to 4:00 p.m. Monday-Friday.
We are on track for success. As always we encourage our school community to give their support. For your child to be successful here at South, we invite you to be a part of our family. There are numerous volunteer opportunities for you. You are always welcome here.
Please feel free to contact us with your questions or comments. Thank you for your continued commitment to your child’s education and unwavering dedication to Lake Forest South Elementary School.
See you at school!
