Flood's Flash

Good afternoon families,

We thank you for taking part in our parent-teacher conferences. We are so grateful for the time we get to spend with you talking about our favorite subjects - your kids!! We are hoping you are enjoying your week with them.

It's hard to believe that the holiday season is upon us! Typically at this time of year, families are gearing up and making plans to enjoy this time with others. With the ever evolving status of Covid-19, we realize these plans could look different this year. We wish you all the best as you are determining the narratives for your family's fall and winter festivities.

Mark your calendars! November 18th is our next Late Start Wednesday! Be watching for communication about registration for Summit Rise, the before school care provided on our late start Wednesdays.

Best, Mrs. Rachel Flood

Roadmap to Reopening

Click here for details on the district plan to re-open schools on Sept. 8, 2020.

A few notes on protocols and health guidelines for LSR7

* Staff and students wear masks at all times unless we are taking a mask break while socially distanced.

* Students will hand wash and/or sanitize hands each time they leave and enter a new space. Ex: from classroom to art, from PE to recess, from classroom to lunch, etc. . .

* Classroom desks/tables will be sanitized each time students eat breakfast.

* Students will maintain consistent seating charts in classrooms, at lunch, in special class and students will have assigned line orders. These practices will help us should we need to contact trace.

* The schedule has been build with extra time in between recesses and special class so equipment and materials can be cleaned.
