    This is Mr. Phillips, principal of Lutz K-8 School.

    We hope all our Lutz Leopard families enjoyed their fall break and it was exciting to see students back on campus.   

    The PTSA Holiday Shop will take place next week December 5th through 8th.

    The Giving Tree for Lutz K-8 is now up in the front office.  This event supports families in need at our school for the holiday season. If you’re interested in selecting a family to support, please stop by the front office.  Thank you for your dedication to Lutz families.

    This is a reminder to parents for drop-off that the front parking lot is utilized for parent escort to the front of the school.  This is not a drop-off area.  If utilizing the front parking lot to bring students to school, please do not allow them to exit the vehicle and a parent should escort them to the front of the school across the crosswalk.  This ensure safety of all students as buses and vehicles are moving about the campus.  Your attention to this matter is much appreciated to support all our Lutz leopards!

    Just a reminder there are no more early release Mondays for students until January 23, 2023.  Students will be dismissed at 2:10 P.M.  Students will have a make-up day on January 9, 2023 due to school closure on November 10th.  January 9th will be a regular school day for students, and they will be dismissed at 2:10 P.M.

    This Friday is college day students and staff are invited to wear college gear.   This Friday is also Bucs day.  Students and staff are invited to wear Bucs gear as we raise the flag in support of our home team.

    Here is the latest edition of the Backpack Express:

    Please be reminded dismissal is at 2:10 P.M. and 1:10 P.M. on Mondays.  It would be best for middle school parents to arrive after 2:15 P.M. as this would help to expedite our dismissal.  If you are a middle school parent who arrives prior to 2:15 P.M., please follow the elementary pick-up point line and pull into the grass and staff will inform you when it is time to move to the middle school pick-up point location.  Please refrain from parking in the front staff parking lot as this slows down the traffic flow during dismissal and helps to ensure safety for all stakeholders and ensures the car line continues to move smoothly. In addition, parents waiting on U.S. 41 please be mindful of the bike lane.  We are asking all parents to adhere to right turns only when exiting onto U.S. Highway 41.  This helps to assist with traffic back-up into the school and will help to ensure a quicker dismissal process. 

    Do not forget to join our PTSA for the 2022-2023 school year. Parents can go to to sign-up.  On the website you can access information on ordering spirit gear for this school year.
