Support Luxmanor Elementary by Registering with these Companies
Luxmanor does not conduct any formal fundraisers during the school year. The only fundraising we do is through the companies below who have teamed up with schools to provide funds for us to use to purchase items for the school. Mrs. McGolrick heads up this effort for our school and will be sending home a flyer soon regarding these programs. The funds we receive goes towards purchasing supplies, equipment and materials that our teachers use with your children to enhance their learning. Thank you to everyone in the past who has registered your cards with Luxmanor at the retailers below. I hope we are able to continue the incredible support we have received from our community in the past.
You can register on-line at Harris

Unfortunately, inclement weather is on its way. Below you will find information regarding weather related closings during the school year. Winter weather emergencies, such as snow and ice, may cause disruptions in school operations, including the closing of school, a delayed opening or an early dismissal. Please keep in mind that poor weather conditions in other parts of the county, particularly the northern part of the county, may cause the entire county to be delayed or closed for the day even though the weather in our area may not seem to warrant it.
Public announcements are made by MCPS as soon as possible on area radio and television stations, the MCPS channel and on the Internet at www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org, and on a recorded telephone message at 301-279-3673. You may also sign up for MCPS QuickNotes on the school system's homepage. If schools are closed or delayed, the announcement is made by 5:00 a.m. If schools are closing early, the announcement is made by 11:00 a.m.
A delayed opening means that schools open two hours later than scheduled. All busses operate on the same delayed schedule and, therefore, the pick-up times are two hours later than normal. For Luxmanor, school will begin at 11:00 a.m. Students may arrive to school at 10:40 a.m ., when there will be staff available to monitor the students. All morning activities that may have been scheduled will be cancelled (ex: field trips). Activities scheduled to begin after 10:40 a.m. will be held. Please continue to check for radio, television, or Web announcements in the event a decision to delay the opening of schools is reconsidered and a decision to close schools for the day is made (by 7:00 a.m.).
An early dismissal means that schools will close 2.5 hours earlier than scheduled. All buses operate on that same early schedule and, therefore, drop-off times are 2.5 hours earlier than normal. All after school activities are cancelled. For Luxmanor, dismissal is at 12:55 p.m. Early dismissals are announced by 11:00 a.m.

Luxmanor Crisis Plan and Emergency Procedures
Luxmanor Elementary School has extensive emergency contingency plans and a comprehensive school crisis plan. The following is a brief summary of the procedures for emergency situations either inside or outside the school building:
Shelter: An emergency situation that requires all students to be under direct supervision and accounted for. Our OSET (On-Site Emergency Team) assembles in the main office, all bells are turned off, outside doors are secured, and attendance is taken and transmitted to the OSET Team. During a shelter alert, classes continue as normal; further instructions by the administration will be transmitted over the PA system. Depending on the situation, students in portable classrooms may be brought back into the main building.
Lockdown: An imminent emergency that requires all areas of the building to be secured (lockdown). Staff remains in place with students, building services locks all exterior doors, bells are ignored. Classes are silent, blinds are drawn, and students move away from windows. Classes do not continue as normal; further instructions by the administration will be transmitted over the PA system.
Off Campus Evacuation Location: If we need to evacuate the building other than for a fire drill, we are required to move a minimum of 300 feet from the building. In this event, we will evacuate to the Tilden Holding Center, 6300 Tilden Lane, Rockville, MD 20852. The alternate location is Green Acres School, 11701 Danville Dr., Rockville, MD 20852.
