  • Please remember that supplies may need to be replenished throughout the year.  Hint/Tip:  Stocking up on some essentials while things are on sale might be a good idea.  
  • Bibles will be given as a gift from PTL to all new students and all 2nd grade students. These will be delivered to your student's classroom when they arrive.  If your student has lost theirs, or you are in need of a new one, please stop by the office.  New bibles are $15.

The Family Handbook provides the purpose, philosophy and objectives of Atonement Lutheran School.  It also includes information on the daily procedures in effect for the 2018-19 academic year.  It is our hope that parents will read the handbook carefully and refer back to it during the school year as questions and concerns arise.  The support of the parent is vital to the child and teacher.  While every effort has been made to cover most aspects related to school operations, no handbook can cover all the complexities of a total school program.  If questions arise, please direct those to the Mr. Molin, our principal.
