Principal's Message

Welcome back to school everyone!

I hope all of you had a fantastic summer break and are looking forward to the new school year. Locust Fork Elementary is a K-6 elementary school with approximately 520 students, 36 certified faculty members, and 11.5 staff members. LFES also has 9 wonderful bus drivers and 6 terrific lunchroom ladies that work together to make our students feel special. Locust Fork Elementary School has an outstanding team of educators who work to serve our community and make students feel safe and loved while preparing them for success throughout each grade level.  

Many improvements have been completed during the summer to make LFES more energy efficient. Some of these improvements include LED lighting in every classroom, new insulation, new heating and cooling, hallway enhancements, waxing of the floors, and painting. Parents are always welcome and are encouraged to volunteer. LFES could definitely use more Parent Teacher Student Organization (PTSO) members! PTSO meets once a month and works to raise money for our school. PTSO has been able to fund furniture and technology for classrooms, instructional materials for teachers, resources for students and more. I want to encourage all parents and guardians to get involved and be apart of our school community. We hope to see many of you this year volunteering and supporting our students.
