Parents

The relationship between staff, students, and parents are very important to the education of our students. If at anytime you want to connect with any of your students' support group (administration, support workers, or teachers) please feel free to contact the person you are looking for through our contacts page. The staff at Laurie Middle School want to work with you for the benefit of your student. There are some informational pieces following, but please contact the school if you have any questions or concerns.

Classes
