Elementary Back To School Information

Elementary Letter

Dear Strafford Elementary Families,

On behalf of the Strafford Elementary Team, we are happy to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year! Please be sure to read the following carefully:


STUDENT REGISTRATION: Once again this year students registration/updating will be online through the Parent Portal. Instructions can be found on the website. If you do not have Parent Portal login information, please email the office at elementary@straffordschools.net or 417-736-7000 ext. 2200. We ask for this to be completed by Tuesday, August 16th. 


TEACHER ASSIGNMENT: Again this year, you will be able to view your child’s classroom teacher assignment through Parent Portal. Please be on the lookout for an email from your child’s teacher regarding important back to school information coming soon. 


OPEN HOUSE: Again this year, we will be hosting a modified school wide open house on Thursday, August 18th. In order to limit the amount of people in our buildings, your child’s teacher will be emailing you important information including a sign up for a time slot to see the classroom and meet the teacher. Please look for the email next week to sign up.


IMPORTANT BACK TO SCHOOL INFORMATION: Parents were emailed a link to fill out required IMPORTANT information. This online form must be completed prior to August 19th.


STUDENT SUPPLIES: Please bring your child’s $35.00 supply fee to Open House. Checks should be made out to Strafford Elementary.


SCHOOL MEAL PRICES: The FDA Free Food program, which provided free meals for students the past 2 years, has ended and students will pay for their meals this school year. It is VERY important for parents to fill out the online Free & Reduced Lunch Application which is within your LUMEN Parent Portal. This program helps your family financially AND aids our district with funding for various programs. The prices for school meals are listed below:

Breakfast $2.25

Reduced breakfast $.30            

Reduced lunch $.40

Elementary student lunch $2.75

Please visit the link found HERE for the details to our Free & Reduced Lunch program and find out if your family qualifies.


FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL: Monday, August 22

We are looking forward to an amazing school year!
