Lakeside Cluster Summit Liaison

Please nominate a LCS liaison to represent our school, Pleasantdale Elementary School.

This person should be someone who is willing to communicate with the principal, our PAC, our PT(S)A/PTO, and foundation if applicable, but should not be a current chair of any of these organizations. Parents who have rolled off leadership roles may be very suitable for this liaison role.

Their commitment for the LCS is to participate in, or otherwise stay informed about your school's PAC, PT(S)A/PTO, or foundation meetings, and to participate in a 1-hour planning meeting prior to each summit (currently virtual, may be in person or by phone in the future). 

To nominate a liaison use this form: Lakeside Cluster Summit Liaison Nomination Form

The PTO of Pleasantdale is a vital link in the operation of the school’s program. Monthly meetings provide opportunities for parents and teachers to meet and get to know one another. Monthly meetings provide information and programs on a variety of topics. All parents and teachers are encouraged to not only join the PTO, but also actively participate by volunteering to work on committees. We really appreciate all the parents who have helped Pleasantdale this past semester.

Checking Your Student(s) Out

Be aware that the names written on a student's registration form will be the only people who will be allowed to check out a student. If it becomes necessary for a student to leave school prior to the normal dismissal time, the parent/guardian MUST come to the office and sign the child out. All students must be checked out prior to 1:45 p.m.  No student will be allowed to be checked out after the 1:45 p.m. cut off.
Student check-out procedures are:

· The person must identify himself/herself and school personnel will verify that he/she is listed on the student's registration form.

· The person must provide photo identification (for the safety of our students, exceptions cannot be made).

· The person must sign out the student.


2:15 p.m. Bus Riders

2:20 p.m. Walker/Car Riders

2:25 p.m. YMCA Program

Note: If there is going to be a change with your child’s transportation for a day or permanently, you must put it in writing and send it to school or come to the office and make the change.

Observing Classrooms (Parent or Guardian)

1. The DeKalb County School System is an open system and encourages parent participation and involvement.

2. To maintain an optimal learning environment, parents should arrange classroom visits with the principal in order to avoid testing days, field trips, or other similar preplanned group activity.

3. To assure safety of all students, parents are requested to sign in at the office upon arrival at school.

4. While visiting in the classroom, parents should avoid activity, which would distract students.

5. Parental visits should not be for the purpose of “monitoring” a teacher and generally should not exceed one hour in length.

6. When appropriate, the principal may choose to sit with the parent during the visit.
