The Leopard Call

Ladd Newsletter: Mid-March 2020

First and foremost, we want to thank you for your patience as we have started to adjust to all of these changes. I'm going to keep this short, as I know that you have been inundated with emails from the district. You can find all of their links about the closure on the district homepage.

Expect to hear from your child's teacher throughout this week with a continuation of the engagement activities that you received last week. These are completely optional.

Towards the end of the week, we will also begin to reach out about how instruction will look for the next five weeks. We sent an online survey to help us understand your level of connectivity and the devices that you have in your home. staff members followed up with calls to those who did not complete the survey. If no one in your household heard from staff or filled out the survey, the link is We are calling from home, so calls from Ladd STaff might how up as "Unknown Caller."

Take care and know that the Ladd staff wishes you happiness, health and safety during this extended time apart. We'll be in touch!

Thanks Again!

You may remember last spring when Sheila McEachern arranged for a pallet of Lysol wipes to be donated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. We've never been more grateful than we are right now!
