Laburnum Community Connection

Family Edition - March 7, 2021

Greetings Laburnum Families,


Thank you for your support as we transitioned into our hybrid model of instruction. Students are doing a great job adjusting to the schedule.


As a reminder, we will not be making additional changes to in person scheduling to remain in compliance with CDC and HCPS Health Committee guidelines. Additionally, as our students and teachers adjust to the new schedule, this will prevent disruption to instruction and current transportation schedules. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to your child's teacher or me.


Please don't forget to check out our PTA Message section to see our upcoming fundraiser and winners of our mask contest.


Friday March 12 is a half day. The schedule is 8 - 10:30. Please be at the bus stop to receive your student. Please be at parent pick-up at 10:25.

#TogetherWeRISE

Join us for LAMP Night on March 24th. See flyer below for details.
