Lead Academy Weekly News 11-24-19
As we head into a fall break where many of us will be celebrating Thanksgiving, we wanted to say thank you to all of our amazing Lead families. You guys always show support to teachers, students and staff in a variety of ways. We couldn't do all we do without you. We are very thankful and appreciative of everyone that has a part in Lead Academy. We hope everyone enjoys some rest and relaxation and is able to spend some time with family and friends.

Our policy for outside play during cold times is 40 degrees. It must be 40 or above for students to go outside for classes or recess.
School Fees and Balances
As a charter school, we operate off a very tight budget and every dollar counts. We maximize every dollar to have direct impact on students. With that said, it is very important that all school fees and lunch balances are taken care of in a timely fashion. Notices are sent home frequently as a reminder. Currently, any student with a negative balance of more than $50 will have all money turned into the front office (field trips, events, and other fees) applied directly to that debt first per board policy. Our board is also working on an updated debt policy which will be published in October. Anytime you need assistance or a payment plan, please reach out to us and we will work something out. If you have questions, please let us know.
