Inclement Weather Policy – Change to School Day Schedule on Days with Delays

We have found that our students, and teachers, do best with a consistent routine, therefore, we will have BSR and a short Opening on days with a 1 hour delay. Leaving opening sends the message that the school day has begun and sets an expectation for behavior. Please drop off between 9:35-9:50 (exactly 1 hour later than usual). If you're a morning supervision parent, and the timing will present a problem, please let us know now, so we can be prepared.

Use the Amazon link to benefit Lorien Wood

Through the awesome Amazon Associates program, now any purchase you make through Amazon can result in 6.5% to 10% of your purchase amount being donated to Lorien Wood. WOW! All you have to do is go to this link: and it will transport you to the regular Amazon site, where you can shop and pay just as you always do.

TRIP Represents Huge Opportunities for Tuition Savings

Lorien Wood parents are earning $100s—even $1000s—of dollars for the school AND off their tuition bills! You can be one of them. There were two Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (TRIP) presentations in late September. If you missed those, learn more at  Questions? Contact Ashley Kelley (, or Heather Etner (

Online Giving

Each year, we augment our operating budget through a single fundraiser to families and friends of Lorien Wood. We deliberately choose to not engage in numerous, time-consuming fundraisers through the year that fatigue faculty and parents and distract from the educational focus of our program. This is a blessing! This month you received a letter on our annual fundraiser. Giving is easier than ever—you can give securely online on our Support Us page. You can also set up monthly giving through this page via Paypal. Please feel free to share this link with any extended family members or friends of Lorien Wood that might be willing to participate in our annual fundraiser.
