My family and I recently relocated to Florida to give ourselves a better life and more opportunities my child had no choice but to be enrolled in this school it's only been 1 month since school started and my child has came home twice with headlice I believe the school is nasty and the people who work in it are in denial before we relocated my child never had headlice and since she's been at Grassy lakes she's had it twice in one month.....I treated it she was given a clean bill of health I was reassured they check EACH child's head EVERY Friday well clearly that's a LIE IF that were the truth my child wouldn't have had headlice twice with full grown headlice bugs within two weeks from being treated the last time at this school I'm doing my part at home as the parent they need to do their part as a clean and sterilizing staff.....I think that school is is denial and a bunch of liars and I have a paper towel full of dead headlice full grown bugs to prove it.....my advice to parents is check your children's hair for live cuz grassy lakes staff say they do but CLEARLY THEY DO NOT......In the process of trying to get my child moved to another school there is definitely a epidemic with headlice going on in that school and it is disgusting.
My son attended Lost Lake Elementary for second grade and the first quarter of third grade. We then moved and he was enrolled at Grassy Lake. My son's new teacher was very supportive throughout his transition. He was expected to catch up on their classroom assignments in a short amount of time and did really well. As the school year is approaching the end, I have noted strong differences between LLES and GLES. My son has been afforded more challenges and opportunties. Homework is not mundane and repetitive. They have assigned more projects and a research paper. Online learning is a requirement not an option (such as the FCAT Explorer program and Raz Kids). After his experience at GLES, I feel like the curriculum at LLES was on 'auto pilot.' The teacher has been informative throughout her web site/emails. She has helped my son become a more responsible student.
Agree with the lack of wanting to move children. I know they have their reasons children are in each class, but believe it or not the parents do know when there isn't a good fit for their child. Love99% of the teachers, but the principal needs to be 'jumping on any issues the parents feel strongly about!
My Son has always been an A+ student, coming from Lost Lake and now Grassy Lake. This year, we discover he was absolutely incompatible with his new teacher and his grades went down dramatically. He begged to be moved to another class and so we requested the principal's office, over and over. However, our request was totally ignored. I am very disappointed at the way the issue was (or was not) handled by the principal's office. This year felt like torture to my son who, up to now, has always been excited to go to school.
