Schools list supplies necessary for K-5

August 11, 2005

Lansing Elementary and Intermediate schools have listed the school supplies students should have at the start of the school year.

Supplies can be purchased separately, or parents can purchase "wrappacs" -all the school supplies a student needs for the year with all the special requirements for each grade. The schools order wrappacs from EPI, the company that puts them together. Pre-orders are taken in the spring, but the schools order extras for parents to buy in the fall. The cost of a wrappac is listed with each grade.To purchase a wrappac, contact the schools.

Parents are asked to place the student's name on every item brought to school unless otherwise requested. Tennis shoes are required for kindergarten through third-grade physical education classes.
