Bullying Prevention Month

Bullying Prevention Month

September 30, 2022 DoDEA actively acknowledges National Bullying Prevention month in October in order to help educate and raise awareness of bullying prevention.

Welcome to Shirley Lanham ES

It is our pleasure to welcome you to the official Shirley Lanham Elementary School (LHES) website. Our goal is to provide current and relevant information about our school to the military families we serve today and those we look forward to welcoming to our campus in the future. Located in the heart of the Kanto Plains, Shirley Lanham Elementary School is a Department of Defense Education Agency ( DoDEA ) school positioned in the center of Naval Air Station Atsugi near Tokyo, Japan.

Arnn ES School

Although called NAF Atsugi ( NAFA ) we are not actually in the  Atsugi-shi limits but are a part of Ayase-shi in the Kanagawa-ken or prefecture. Lanham Elementary School's centralized location makes it easy to access several major transportation centers such as airports, highways, railways and bus lines. It is also close to other major military installations including Camp Zama Army Base, Yokota U.S. Air Force Base and Yokosuka U.S. Navy Base.

DSIS Family Portal

Student access to the DoDEA SIS Family Portal opens at 9:00am EST on Wednesday, September 28th.

Students in grades 4-12 will be able to log in through their ClassLink account and share information with parents. Students will be able to access their schedules, assignments, grades, teacher contacts, and more!

Parent access to the Family portal is coming in October as we work with the vendor to resolve remaining technical issues
