Update on LIP Learning

Friday, September 25th

Dear Eagle Families,

Thank you for your patience as we work through the details of Limited In-Person Learning (LIP). We know that everyone has different feelings about this model and coming into the building, and we are working to accommodate your needs.


This newsletter has important information about safety, as well as pickup and drop-off for LIP learning next week. We are so excited to see our students in the building! If you are not participating, we understand completely.


Middle school will NOT have LIP Learning during the 9 a.m. - 11 a.m. window next week. They will have regularly scheduled online classes. If you are a middle school parent, please look for an email on Monday with some options for afternoon in-person study hall sessions. We are working to make a thoughtful decision so that we don't have to change the plan again. I apologize sincerely for the inconvenience, and appreciate your patience as we work toward a solution that best supports all of our students' needs.


Sincerely,


Rosemarie El Youssef

Principal, St. Therese School

All students must wear a mask or face shield during LIP Learning.

Bring your own water bottle - drinking fountains are turned off for safety.

Our touchless water bottle fillers are on backorder, and water fountains are turned off for health and safety reasons.

COVID HEALTH SELF-CHECK

Please be sure that everyone in your family is free of symptoms before you come to school. In order to keep everyone safe, you may NOT come onto campus if you have any of the symptoms listed below.


When you arrive, we will ask you for a thumbs up, or thumbs down regarding these symptoms. If you are a thumbs up, we will take student temperatures. If their temperatures are below 100.4, we will ask them to get out of the car and come into the school! If they do not pass the temperature check, you will need to take everyone in the car home with you.


We ask for your patience as we work through this process. We are all learning how to make things happen in the time of COVID!

Drop-off

For drop-off in the morning, please come to the very front of the school, just like you did for the supply pick-up. Someone will be there to direct you where to stop, and we will do our health checks at that time. DO NOT pull away until someone directs you that it is ok to do so.


You may line up early, but we will not begin to let students out of the car until 8:45 a.m.

Pick-up

Pick-up might be a little more complicated. For our families who have been here awhile, you'll remember we used to do pick-up this way! In order to keep our kids socially distant and safe during pick-up, we ask that you stay parked while students are actively moving through the parking lot.


An adult will signal you when it is ok to leave. Someone will be at each crosswalk to protect the children moving to their cars.


Pick-up is organized by the YOUNGEST student in your family. If you have a 1st grader and 4th grader, you will line up in the 1st grade parking lane (RED). If you have a 3rd grader and a 5th grader, you will line up in the 3rd grade parking lane (GREEN).


Students will walk down the aisles to your car. Please stay with your car, although you are welcome to stand so your student can find you easily.


Keep speed to 10 MPH while exiting the parking lot. Our priority is the safety of our kids!


Exit to Halsey ONLY.
