School Hours

School starts promptly at 8:15 a.m. when teachers greet the students in the yard.  Your child should be in line when the second bell rings.   Please do not drop off your students before 8:00 AM. Our staff is not available to supervise before this time. Under no circumstance should any student be left unattended before 8:10 AM on school property, including the parking lot and yards. All Kindergarden students must be supervised by their parents until picked up by their teachers.   Breakfast is served beginning at 8:00 a.m. in the cafeteria.  Students may enter through the yard doors.  All children are entitled to a free breakfast and are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity.

School is dismissed at 2:54 p.m.  We encourage you to schedule doctor’s appointments for after 2:54 p.m.  Early dismissal is disruptive to the instructional program.

Uniform Policy

Uniforms must be worn EVERYDAY!  The School Reform Commission has adopted a mandatory school uniform policy for all students. Starting the first day of school in September, Loesche students are required to wear the following:

Girls : Girls will wear either a long or short sleeved navy blue golf shirt that has a collar with khaki pants, skirt, skort, or jumper. Skirts, skorts, and jumpers must be no shorter than three inches above the knee. Short shorts or skirts will not be permitted.
Boys : Boys will wear khaki pants with either a long or short sleeved navy blue golf shirt which has a collar.
When the weather becomes colder, students may wear a blue sweatshirt, sweater, or inside jacket. Students may also wear a blue turtleneck.
Students should not wear expensive jewelry at any time. Shoes must be sturdy such as sneakers with ties or shoes with buckles. No sandals, flip flops or high heels.

All students are expected to adhere to this uniform policy. Failure to wear the school uniform will result in appropriate disciplinary action in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct. Over-sized clothing is not permitted. Undergarments should not be visible. Consequences for students not adhering to the uniform policy may include: detention, time out or loss of privileges.

Uniform shirts and gym uniforms are available for sale at our school.
