Welcome to Lasselle Elementary

Leopard Community,

It is with great excitement that I welcome you and your family to the 2023-2024 school year at Lasselle Elementary. Lasselle is an exceptional school that is full of the most dedicated staff, innovative students, and incredible community members.

Our mission statement at Lasselle Elementary drives the incredible work that we are invested in for our scholars and community.

“The mission of Lasselle Elementary School is to empower scholars to take ownership of their learning and become productive citizens in an evolving society by creating a safe environment where scholars can grow emotionally, socially, and academically.”

A brief way of stating this is our mantra, “Every Student, Every Day, No Matter What”. As your principal, it is a privilege to serve you, your children, and our incredible staff. It is honor to start my sixth year here at Lasselle. Please know that I am always here to meet with you, hear from you, and collaborate with you. I sincerely love this community and I believe that we are stronger together.

Our first day of school this year is on August 9th, 2023. Please review our bell schedule and follow us on social media (@lassellevvusd) for full details regarding our plans for the first week of school. Please confirm that your email and contact information on the parent portal is updated so that you receive all of our communication throughout the school year

Class lists will be posted on Tuesday, August 8th  in front of the school on the gate in our parking lot. Our campus will be open from 4:00-6:00 PM so that you can walk your scholar to their classroom door and show them their line. Please be advised that no class changes will take place for the first three weeks of school. If you wish to request a change, you must complete the form provided on August 8th. Please also be advised that if a teacher recommendation was made, there is no guarantee that it will be honored. State guidelines and other factors must be followed and take precedent over requests.

It is going to be a fantastic year! My door is always open, and I am always one email or phone call away. It is a blessing to serve this community!

Lasselle Strong,

Principal, Lasselle Elementary
