Lighthouse Public Schools

April 2021

Dear Families,


We are happy to share that 90% of our teachers and staff have received the COVID-19 vaccine. We are continuing to follow CDC guidelines pertaining to social distancing, wearing a mask and washing hands. We've had a lot of our students return to school and that makes our hearts happy! We encourage more of our students to transition back to in person learning. Please know that we are here to provide support and flexibility to families as they navigate and consider what the best option is for your family. Please talk to your child's teacher if you would like to move your child from remote learning to in person learning.


We have several exciting things coming up over the next few weeks. Please read on to learn more and join in on our excitement!



Colorful wishes,


Dr. Mills
