Spanish Language Instructional Resource Adoption
The Spanish Language Instructional Resource Review task force members have completed their review of Spanish language materials. They are recommending EMC Publishing’s ¡Qué chévere! Books 1, 2, and 3 for Spanish language instruction. All of these resources will support and enhance the instruction of the Colorado Academic Standards for World Languages. The instructional resources will be on display in the foyer of the Board Room at the Education Services Center (5776 South Crocker Street, Littleton) from September 21st through October 9th. A community information session to answer questions will be hosted in the foyer of the Board Room on Wednesday, September 30th from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. The recommendation will be presented to the Board for discussion on September 24th.

Increase in LPS Meal Prices
It is our goal to keep meal prices affordable to families and we are proud that we are able to keep our meal prices lower than many other school districts. Due to state and federal mandates through the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 and increased food costs, beginning in July our meal prices will take a slight increase. Prices for the 2015-2016 school year are as follows:
- Lunch Prices*
- Elementary: $2.70
- Middle: $2.90
- High: $3.00
- Adult: $3.75
*All students who qualify for reduced meal benefits will receive breakfast at no charge. Additionally, PK-5th grade students who qualify for reduced meal benefits also receive lunch at no charge. Free and Reduced Price Meal Benefits can help ensure children have access to healthy, nutritious meals during the school day. These benefits are available to any families that meet the income and household size guidelines for the program. Please encourage families to visit www.lpsnutrition.com or call 300.347.3360 for additional information.
LPS Bond Update
Thanks to the generous support of the Littleton Public Schools’ community, bond election 3B passed by a margin of 60 percent last November. Measure 3B allows LPS to raise $80 million in funds for school repairs without increasing the current tax rate. Much needed repairs are slated for every school and district facility. Visit the LPS 2013 Bond website to learn more. Thank you for your continued support of our schools!
