The LMS Lowdown

January 29, 2021

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Yesterday started the 3rd marking period at LMS, so we are officially in the back half of the year. It obviously feels like no other year, but it is time to make sure all our students are coming to classes, both in person and virtually. In addition, we hope all our students are doing their best in their classes and giving the effort necessary to be successful. As always, we are here to help with office hours for the teachers, meetings with our counselors, and the answers to all your questions by contacting the office. We are here to serve and hope to make things the best we can for our students and community. Warm weather coming soon, I hope!!

AUXS APP UPDATE

The AUXS app has been updated with new questions to reflect the guidance from the Burlington County Department of Health. Please make sure to run the update for the app on your phone.

COVID-19 REMINDERS AND UPDATES

  • Please keep your child home if they are sick, and notify Mrs. Gambino as to why they are absent. She can be reached at agambino@lumberton.k12.nj.us
  • Make sure Genesis is updated if there were any changes to contact information over the break.

LOWDOWN THROWBACK

This week we go back to a couple of candid shots. The first is from the 2005 yearbook and the second is from 2013. The good old days, when none of us knew what social distancing was...
