For Parents

Welcome! We know that if you send your child to Trinity Lutheran School (formerly Baton Rouge Lutheran School), you will have entrusted us with your most prized possession. We want to be your partner in your child’s educational journey.

As a school, we take great pride in the frequency of our communications and quality of our interactions with parents and students. We provide the traditional types of school communications -- detailed family handbook for reference, a staff directory and a family directory to encourage parent-teacher and parent-parent contact, face-to-face conferences as often as desired, and both public and private websites so we can share information quickly and appropriately. But our efforts don’t stop there….

Emailed Communications

The principal prepares briefly stated information and timely reminders that are normally shared via email with school families. These brief e-mails may inform parents of school events, the monthly lunch menu, parenting information, immediate volunteer opportunities, family devotion recommendations, special flyers, or time-sensitive forms. (Printed copies of emails will be sent home with students whose parents have no Internet access.  Unfortunately, there is often a delay of at least one day.)

Additional school-wide emails may be sent by members of the school office staff. 

Student or class-specific emails may be sent (by classroom teachers, club sponsors or coaches) to parents, or to parents and students.  (Any emails addressed to 5th-8th grade students are also sent to their parents.)

Kindergarten-Grade 8 Class Newsletters -- Weekly

Teachers prepare class newsletters to communicate classroom and curricular expectations, help students effectively plan their week, use study time wisely, and encourage parent and guardian interest in each student's academic life. These may be attached to e-mails sent by teachers, but are also available on Plus Portals.  (Printed copies of newsletters will be sent home with students whose parents have no Internet access.)

FACTS

Parents, students and teachers are all linked through their access to our private website, FACTS. FACTS helps each parent stay involved in, and supportive of, their child’s educational progress.  There are directories to encourage communication by phone or email.  Periodically there are online forms for easy family-to-school communication as well.

 Facebook

 A parent maintains our Trinity Lutheran School Facebook page.  Along with teachers and other staff, content is posted to help promote the school and make the communitee aware of what we have to offer.
