When winter weather strikes a decision has to be made as to whether kids attend school that day. The district attempts to make a decision by 10:00 pm to call off school the next day. However, in most cases, a decision won't be made until morning. The goal is to make an announcement no later than 6:00 am. Tune to FM radio station 105.9 or local television stations for frequent school closings. The district also posts announcements on public radio access channel 6 and on the LPS website (www.usd497.org). The district also uses school messenger to call all parents to notify them of school closings.

The Unified School District 497, Lawrence Public Schools Boundary Advisory Committee (BAC) is a board-established advisory committee as defined in Board Policy BBC - Board Committees.
Meetings will be scheduled once each semester and additional meetings may be scheduled as needed. Agenda items will be established in collaboration with the Boundary Advisory Committee, the Board of Education and the Superintendent. Minutes of the meetings will be created, filed and distributed accordingly.
The K-5th Standards Based Progress Reports are now posted on our school district's website and can be accessed through the link below by both parents and staff members.
Many of you may have already pre-enrolled for the Boys and Girls club. If not, please call Lindsay Simms at 423-3695 if you have questions about the program.
Enrollment is on a first come - first serve basis. The program runs from 3:00-5:30 MTTF and 1:30-5:30 on Wednesdays. The fee is $40 a week with some scholarships available (fee subject to change).
Doors to the building are locked until 7:30 am when staff are officially on duty. For the safety of your children, we must insist that children are not dropped off unsupervised before this time.
Students must also be picked up by 3:00 pm- Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. They must be picked up by 1:30 pm on Wednesdays. There is NO supervision for your child after school is dismissed unless enrolled in Boys and Girls Club.
The Boys and Girls Club has exclusive usage of our playgrounds for their after school program. Therefore, we can not allow students to play on the outside equipment unsupervised until after 5:30pm. The only exception is if a parent is physically with their child to supervise while they are playing. We will have several staff members outside to help monitor the dismissal of students. Unsupervised children will be asked to leave the school grounds immediately after school.
Please help us by reminding your children to come home right after school.
When you come to the building during school hours, 8:00-3:00, please sign in at the front desk and put a Deerfield sticker on. This lets others in the building know that you have signed in at the office!
The Deerfield Newsletter is sent out every other Thursday via Skyward as well as being posted on this site.
All school and student information is communicated using Skyward Family Access. If you need a password, please contact the school office.
Help us support programs and events like the Butterfly Garden, the Scholatstic Book Fair, Watch DOGS, Kindergarten Roundup, the Spring Carnival, Marathon Club, teacher appreciation week and many more events.
