2020/21 Elementary Principal Update
May 9, 2021
If someone asked you to name the most beautiful word in English, how would you respond? Would your choice be based on the meaning of the word, or what you liked the most, or how it sounded? There are many beautiful words in our language. We love words like integrity, trust, collaboration, and enthusiasm, just to name a few. In 2004, the British Council surveyed more than 40,000 people in 102 non-English countries and asked what is the most beautiful word in the English language. Here are the top five responses, and we agree wholeheartedly!
And #1, the most beautiful word in English is Mother.
We are celebrating Mother’s Day today. Mothers, like the word, are the most beautiful people in the world. We thank our mothers and all those who touched our lives.
Happy Mother's Day,
Emily Blaney, LCE Principal
Carrie Hetzel, PCY Principal
Cory Pak, PCR Principal

Health Screening Form Reminder
COVID-19 Health Screening Form - Parent Square
Quickly complete daily health checks from your phone or the web.
In order to streamline daily health check processes and reduce the spread of COVID-19 within the school and larger community, LCUSD has implemented ParentSquare’s easy-to-use health reporting form for all students arriving on campus. Please show your confirmation screen to the person checking you in on campus.
You must be logged in to ParentSquare to access the screening form. Activate your ParentSquare account by clicking the link in your invitation email or text. You can also download the free ParentSquare app for i0S or Android.
Once logged in on the web or mobile app, click the large orange “Submit Daily Screening” button to access the form.
Complete the form by answering “Yes” or “No” to all questions. New feature: you can submit for all your students at the same time--no filling out multiple forms!
After submitting the form, you’ll be able to view a confirmation screen that will clear your student for on-campus learning if non-symptomatic. You will show the confirmation screen to the person checking you in on campus. If your student is walking, they can show the confirmation screen or provide a printed screenshot of the confirmation page.
