Message from the Principal


        The faculty and staff welcome you to Lancaster Elementary School for the 2023-2024 school year. It is my belief that students, parents, and the school all share the responsibility of the educational development of a student. Parental involvement throughout the year is a vital component to the success of this process for every child. I encourage you to communicate with the teachers and the administration team of Lancaster Elementary. Your ideas and suggestions can make meaningful contributions and improvements to the overall school climate and educational experiences afforded to all students.

        Each year at Lancaster has proven very successful for our students. Lancaster is fortunate to have an outstanding and enthusiastic faculty and staff. Our faculty will continue to grow, develop, and enrich our academic programs and school activities this year. Everyone is ready and prepared to make Lancaster continue to stand out proudly among the best schools in St. Tammany and across the nation. Our school theme this year is “Set Sail on the LEADERship” as we will be diving into the Leader in Me 7 habits to help our entire school body strive to be the best version of ourselves!

        We will need your help this year, and I look forward to working with you and your child. The Parent and Student Handbook is designed to provide information about school policies, rules, and procedures for helping secure a safe and caring school environment where all students have the opportunity to learn and grow. Please take time to read over the handbook carefully and feel free to review any parts which you feel would be beneficial to your child with him or her. If you have questions about this handbook or other school issues during the school year, please don't hesitate to call me or email me. We strive to maintain open and productive communication with parents and welcome your comments, questions, and involvement.
