Elementary Hybrid or LO Online: How to Make a Change

Hello Wildcat Families,

I know that the announcement of returning to school has been a challenging one for many in our community. In preparation for returning our elementary students to in-person school, LOSD will continue to share developments and information. In this message I am communicating how you may change your elementary student’s educational model.

Last summer LOSD developed two educational models: Hybrid and LO Online. In August, families chose their model and approximately 20 percent of LOSD elementary families selected LO Online. With the return to school, some families have expressed interest in changing their model.

If you want to switch your elementary student’s educational model to either Hybrid or LO Online, please contact either myself, Jodi Steward, or Andrea Murphy with your change request by this Friday, Jan. 15 at 3 p.m. Our emails are included below. We will need to finalize class rosters before elementary schools begin to return to in-person in February. Please note, changes may result in new teacher assignments to accommodate change requests.

Middle and high school students do not need to indicate a desired change in educational model at this time. When we have confirmed plans and timing for our secondary-levels’ return to in-person school we will accept change requests.

As always, we will do our best to support your Wildcat and family as we navigate this latest shift. Please reach out using the contacts shared below to express your interest in a change or your concerns.

In partnership,

Principal Montgomery
