Parents

This section of our website is devoted to the informational needs of parents - parents of our current students, parents of prospective students, parents of any student, but especially of a student who is Deaf or Hard of Hearing.

Parents of LSD students will find information about school transportation here, including routes, schedules and forms for reimbursement of student travel expenses. For contact information, click on the SignPost at the top of the page.

The poem below very eloquently describes the importance of the relationship between parents and teachers. The author of this lovely poem is unknown.  Enjoy!

Partnership

I dreamed that I stood in a studio and watched two sculptors there.
The clay they used was a young child's mind and they fashioned it with care.

One was a teacher; the tools he used were books, music and art;
One was a parent with a guiding hand and a gentle, loving heart.

Day after day the teacher toiled, with touch that was deft and sure,
While the parent labored by his side and polished and smoothed it o'er.

And when at last their task was done, they were proud of what they had wrought,
For the things they had molded into the child could neither be sold nor bought.

And each agreed he would have failed if he had worked alone,
For behind the parent stood the school, and behind the teacher- the home.
