Dear LP Families,

Happy Friday!


I would like to take a moment now to wish all of our LP families a very happy Thanksgiving. I will not be sending a newsletter next week as the kids will only be in school half a day, Monday 11/21 with parent/teacher conferences taking place Monday and Tuesday. I continue to be grateful to our school community and hope you and your families will be able to enjoy time together over the break.


Please note that dismissal will be at 11:35am on Monday, 11/21. Parent/teacher conferences will take place the afternoon of 11/21 and then during school hours 11/22. Students will not have school 11/22 through 11/25. Please reach out to us with any questions.


With Gratitude,

Dr. Bello

Weekly Highlights!

We are looking to record families who are willing to share one family tradition - a family story, a recipe, a way a holiday is celebrated, a meaningful song, or anything that your family does that is special and why it's important to you. We will compile these stories to make one video to show our students. During this time of the year, it is important to honor the different traditions that all families have and learn from each other.    We are recording families on December 14th in two sessions: 8:00am or 2:00pm. If you are interested, please complete this form:

LP Health Update! We have been experiencing an increased number of students absent from school due to illness.  We appreciate families giving students rapid COVID tests but there is a lot of respiratory illness going around too.  Common symptoms reported are sore throat, headache, and fever.  If your child is experiencing these symptoms, please keep them home and reach out to your pediatrician for guidance.
