The LMS Lowdown

April 30, 2021

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

In the last LMS Lowdown, I discussed the possible change to the schedule. As of today, we have been given word that we will return to five days of in person instruction starting next week. Wednesday will be like the other four days in the morning, with academics being delivered. Basic skills and Gifted and Talented will continue to be taught in the afternoon on Wednesdays. Each grade level will now get one day of PE and one day of Health on either Monday/Tuesday or Thursday/Friday. The new schedule, which begins on Monday, can be viewed by clicking here. This will also be in place for fully remote students as well as Wednesday will become an academic day in the morning. We look forward to seeing the kids back in school more often.

LMS THROWBACK

This week's Throwback is not that far back. It is last July as we celebrated the Class of 2020 at graduation. We are excited that Governor Murphy has relaxed the restrictions and we will be able to do this again in June.
