General Information...

Playground Hours: To ensure the safety of students and staff, the school's playground is not available for public use Monday - Friday from 7:45am-2:15pm except for Holidays. Kids need to be supervised until 6pm as the playground is used by K.E.Y.Zone, our after school program. K.E.Y.Zone does use the playground from 8am-6pm during the summer as well. Children are required to follow school rules when using the playground equipment. 

To contact Lester Park Staff go to 'About Us', 'Staff Information'. You'll see a list of all current staff with their extension along with instructions on sending them an email.
