Student and Parent Handbook
Dear Litchfield Elementary School District Families:
Welcome to a new school year in the Litchfield Elementary School District and thank you for choosing our award-winning district. Our school family is excited about the 2020-2021 school year. The first day of school in our district was held with eleven pupils on October 9, 1917. This year we open with 16 schools serving more than 12,000 students.
The Litchfield Elementary School District is dedicated to excellence and has been providing high quality education for 103 years. Our staff members take great pride in the academic achievements and overall well-being of our students. It is our honor to provide award-winning schools, high quality teachers, and nurturing support staff to help your child succeed. We are committed to working with you and your child to ensure a safe learning environment and a culture of excellence.
This handbook contains important information about district academic and behavioral expectations as well as helpful parent resources. I encourage you to review it with your child. We believe that positive social
interaction and positive behavior are important components of your child’s emotional and academic success in our award-winning district.
Thank you for choosing Litchfield Elementary School District. We look forward to partnering with you and your child for an excellent school year.
Your partner in education,
Jodi Gunning, M.Ed.
