    Attention all boys interested in Southwest basketball camp this summer.  See Coach Dye in room 801 if you'd like to pick up information and forms for the Dog Pound Clinic this summer.  Information can also be found on the school website.  Go Bulldogs!

    Since the end of the year is quickly approaching, please return any library materials you are not using.  All books and magazines should be returned by today. 
    Sixth and Seventh graders:  If you are returning to Southwest next year and would like to check out a stack of books for the summer, we have a way for you to do that.  Pick up a form in the library, get your parent’s signature, and then you are allowed to check out up to 10 books over the summer.
    Lunch accounts must maintain a positive balance for all purchases, including lunch meals.  No purchases will be allowed which would move our account into the negative.  No charges will be allowed to accounts with negative balances.

  • Kansas regulations require that districts develop and implement written policies to govern the use of Emergency Safety Interventions in all schools.  Emergency Safety Intervention (ESI) is defined as seclusion and restraint that is used when the student presents an immediate danger to self or others.  Lawrence Public School’s Board of Education adopted an ESI policy (GAAF) on October 28, 2013 which is available on the district's website.  The policy will also be available on the building websites and online handbooks as of November 14, 2014. If you need a hard copy of the ESI policy, please contact your building principal.
