Our Vision

The vision of Lingelbach Elementary School is to ensure every student who enters will leave on grade-level or above in all content areas. Learning will be enhanced through the use of environmental studies, the arts, and technology in a clean and safe environment. In achieving this, students will be able to enter the high school of their choice for further preparation for college and/or career.

Mission Statement

Through professional development, educators will utilize best practices in the academic, cognitive, and social development of students. Parents will ensure that students are present and on time each day to receive high-quality instruction. Students, with the support of the school community, will take ownership of their learning; and develop peer mediation and conflict resolution skills. School support staff is included in decision-making and problem-solving strategies for the school community.

“Attention families: The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a Federal law, requires that a school with certain exceptions obtain your written consent prior to the disclosure of personally identifiable information from your child’s education records. However, a school may disclose appropriately designated “directory information” without written consent, unless you have advised the school to the contrary in accordance with school district procedures. The primary purpose of directory information is to allow schools to include information from your child’s education records in certain school publications.

Parents who wish to opt their students out of directory information releases must complete an Opt-Out Form for each of their students, and must return each form to the school at which each student is enrolled by November 6, 2023.

Find more information, including the forms you need HERE. ”


Please review our 2023-2024 School Plan and complete a feedback form available in English, Spanish, Chinese, and Arabic.
