    Our annual principal fundraiser has begun.  Students were sent home with letters and information regarding our fundraiser for this year.  Our goal is to raise $12,000 to support technology and other needs here at school to support student learning.  Students who donate at least $10 will participate in a popsicle party.  Students who donate at least $50 will have the opportunity to silly string our administrative team.  The top three donors will become administrators for the day!  Thank you in advance for your support of Lutz K-8 School!

    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!

    This Friday we will raise the flag in support of our home team the Tampa Bay Bucs.  Students are invited to wear Bucs gear or college gear this Friday September 23rd

    Good luck to our boys’ and girls’ basketball team as they complete against Buchanan Middle School tonight!  Thursday September 22nd our basketball teams compete against Maniscalco K-8 School at Buchanan Middle School at 6:00 P.M.

    The Salvation Army Tree will be from October 3rd through October 7th from 8:30 A.M. to 3:00 P.M.  at 1100 W. Sligh Ave.  A parent or guardian will need to bring their picture ID along with the birth certificate for each child up to 14 years old who lives with them. 

    We want to remind parents that drop off begins at 7:10 A.M.  As you drop off students in the morning, please be sure to pull all the way up to help expedite our traffic process. Drop-off in the morning takes place at elementary pick-up point for all students. Once our buses have cleared, we open the front drop-off area for vehicles.  Vehicles entering the school from the southbound left turn lane should refrain from blocking northbound traffic on U.S. 41. 

    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. 

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