  • Hybrid Students - In Person Days: If a student should be physically present in the building and staying home, we do need this communication to come from the parents or guardians. Please email our attendance office at lenapeattendance@cbsd.org. It is important for us to be able to account for all students for safety reasons. If a student is not in school (but even attending online) the initial absence code will be “absent” until we have a communication from parents. The attendance code will be changed to VP (Virtual Present) once we have the communication from the parent/guardian. We do ask for the communication in advance of the absence so teachers are aware. It also ensures that parents and guardians are aware that the student is at home and has permission.
  • Online Students - Students all Virtual or Hybrid Students on Virtual Days: If a student does not attend class, the student will be marked absent unexcused until we receive communication from parents. If a student logs on but stops engaging in the class, their attendance code will be changed to VC (Virtual Cut).

News From the Nurse

I hope you are staying healthy and well during these times! I just want to share a few reminders:

New families:

All new students are required to have an immunization record and a recent physical and dental exam. These forms can be found by clicking here. Please submit these forms to the nurses office as soon as possible.

For 7th grade parents:

7th graders are expected to have (2) vaccines: Tdap and Meningococcal

Typically, these vaccines are due within 10 days of the first day of school. Due to COVID-19, there was given a 60-day extension. These vaccines are now due by November 8th, with exclusion from school beginning November 9th, 2020.

Please contact the health office with an immunization record or a date as to when the vaccines will be administered. A formal letter was sent home on October 8, 2020 if your child was still missing these vaccines.

Also, 7th grade students are required by PA Department of Health to have a dental exam on file with the school. The dental form can be found on my website under “Health Links > Medical Forms” or by clicking here. Please have this submitted as soon as possible!

Thank you & stay healthy!

Mrs. Cichelli

Spotlight on LMS Choir

Congratulations to the Lenape Middle School Choir! They won the opportunity to perform a world premiere of Chris Maunu's piece, "Remember". There were nearly 200 entries from choirs across the United States and around the world. This is the second premiere that the choir will have this year! Well done!
