Lumberton Schools have applied to become a No Place for Hate District for the 2017-2018 school year.  This includes: FLW, AES, BRS and LMS.  We are thrilled to have this opportunity to become a part of this organization.  These activities will promote respect through active learning projects that address bullying and hatred that will lead to a more positive school climate.

Please remember that Lumberton also offers a comprehensive and healthy school breakfast program for an affordable $1.50 per day (Families who qualify for Free & Reduced meals pay no more than 30-cents). By participating, you can ensure that your child eats a healthy breakfast in school before he or she begins the academic day. Details about the breakfast program are outlined in an attached letter.
