    Dear Parents/Guardian: 

    As we begin this current school year, we want to thank you for your understanding and patience throughout the pandemic. The Lawnside School Board and District’s  Administrative Staff continue to work diligently to return to a sense of normalcy in the safest manner possible. We will continue to work collaboratively with the county, state, and federal health organizations to provide the most up-to-date guidance on maintaining a  healthy learning environment. We ask that you continue your partnership with us and encourage your children to practice healthy habits, such as frequently washing their hands and keeping them home if they do not feel well.  

    The theme for this school year is, “Building Bright Futures!” Building bright futures for our children requires us to focus on their academic and social development. The  Lawnside Board of Education has identified expectations for improvement in both areas  by establishing the following District Goals for the 2022-2023 school year: 

    Goal #1: Improve ELA and Math scores to a total of 3% growth over the previous year. 

    Goal #2: Support student achievement in the social and emotional learning needs of students returning to school full time. 

    Goal #3: Continue to work to engage our parents in positive ways. 

    The first day of school for students will be Tuesday, September 6, 2022. We will begin letting students enter the building at 8:00 am. Students should arrive at school by  8:20 am daily for breakfast in their homerooms. Attendance and lunch selections are taken during homeroom, therefore it is important students arrive at school on time each day. All students attending the Lawnside Public School are eligible to receive breakfast and lunch at no charge throughout the 2022-2023 school year. 

    We are committed to partnering with you to make sure your child(ren) continues to  receive the quality instruction you have come to expect from the school district.  Furthermore, we encourage you to join the PTA and become actively involved in the  initiatives and activities sponsored during the school year. Finally, check our website for informational updates throughout the school year.  

    As always, thank you in advance for your continued support. Please feel free to contact  me if you have any additional questions or concerns at or 856-546-4850 Ext. 2200 or 2201. Respectfully, 

    Ronn H. Johnson, Ed.D. Superintendent
