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

    This week is mental health awareness week.  Please reference calendar of events for this week as we celebrate and support this initiative. 

    Tomorrow evening, PTSA will have a general meeting at 6:00 P.M. in the cafeteria.  We are looking forward to seeing families out tomorrow evening.

    Tomorrow and Wednesday we continue spring FSA testing with grades 3-8.  Students will be complete their math assessment.  Next week students in grades 5 and 8 will complete their state science assessment on Tuesday May 17th and Wednesday May 18th for fifth grade and May 17th for eighth grade.  Seventh grade students will complete their civics EOC assessment on Wednesday May 18th.  We wish all our Leopards continued success and know they will do their best!  If you have questions regarding testing, please contact your homeroom teacher.  We want to ensure all students get a good night’s sleep, eat a good breakfast, and arrive to school on-time.  We are proud of all the hard work shown by our Leopards throughout this school year. 

    This Friday is a non-uniform day for students for $1.00.  Please ensure students adhere to the Hillsborough County dress code policy when participating in this event. 

    This Friday is also the 8th grade dance.  We are looking forward to this event with our 8th graders from 5:30 P.M.-8:00 P.M.  If you have any questions, please be sure to contact the front office or your homeroom teacher.    

    This is a reminder that school starts at 7:40 A.M. for students.  Please help us in assisting with students being in class on time.  If your child happens to be tardy, please ensure you exit your vehicle and walk them to the front office.  This is to ensure student safety as we should not be releasing students from your vehicle without supervision.  Thank you for your attention to this matter. 

    If your student is absent from school, thank you for communicating that information to your child’s teacher.  When your child is absent, please remember to contact the school’s attendance line to report your child’s absence.  Also, this is a reminder that school starts at 7:40 A.M.  We want to ensure all students are on time and ready to learn each morning!  If your child is arriving after 7:40 A.M. please be sure you walk your child to the front office doors.      

    Middle school parents arriving prior to 2:15 P.M. please follow the elementary pick-up point line.  Please do not park along the grass along the entrance to the school as this creates a safety issue with our afternoon traffic.  Thank you for your assistance with this matter. 

    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. 

    Once again this is Mr. Phillips the principal at Lutz K-8 school and each day is a new day of learning for Leopards!
