Dear J.L Lomax Elementary Families,


It is an honor for me to serve as your child’s principal. Despite the challenges that the 2020-2021 school year brings, I am excited about partnering with you to help your child grow to his or her potential. I have served as a principal for many years, but more importantly, I consider myself to be an advocate for our students. Over the next few months, I plan to spend time getting to know our students and their parents while placing your child’s health and safety as my top priority.


The 2020-2021 school year promises to be one filled with challenges for our students and staff as we strive to improve on the greatness already established with a traditional and virtual delivery model.  We embark on this journey with a pledge to you that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in closing the achievement gap that has widened as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. 


Our staff of highly qualified professional educators and support personnel is committed to providing our students many opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom. We invite our parents to work in partnership with us to seize opportunities in all facets of our J.L Lomax programs.


Please know that we highly value home/school communication here at J.L Lomax Elementary.  It is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success. We encourage you to contact us if/when the need arises, and to stay in the know about your child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings.


Again,  I welcome you to the J.L Lomax Elementary family and to our wonderful learning community.  Our school is a place alive with much energy, enthusiasm, and a high standard of excellence! It is, indeed, a place where opportunities abound!  Here’s to an AWESOME new school year as we work together to make our school a great place to work and learn each day!




Dr. Witherspoon, Principal
