We need your help in keeping our students safe at drop off and pick up

Afternoon pick up

A large number of our students are walking and riding their bikes home at the end of the day now that bus services have been suspended for the West Cypress Hills subdivision. We are in search of a crossing guard but until we find someone permanent, a staff member is stationed at the intersection of Sabino and Cypress Ranch Blvd. When a crossing guard is in the middle of the street holding up the STOP sign please stop and wait for our students to cross safely.


We also ask that parents who are picking up by vehicle (yes that means golf carts) use the car line. Sabino is a narrow road and with the number of students walking home and crossing the street, it is a safety concern for vehicles to park on that road during arrival and dismissal hours.

Morning Drop off

There has been an increased number of students being dropped off prior to 7:20. With staff not coming on duty until 7:20, students are left unattended if dropped off early. We ask that you please keep your child in the car until a staff member is on duty.


Our car lines are moving smoothly and quickly in the morning. Please use the car line to drop off your child and do not use Sabino Drive or any other side street as a drop off point.

Curriculum Night - Asynchronous Event September 16

LTISD will be providing parents with an asynchronous Elementary Curriculum Night. In lieu of an in-person meeting, your child's teacher will send out communication on September 16, about curriculum, grading policies, contact information, class schedule, etc. Within the communication you receive, there will be a google form in which you can ask questions.

MORE FAQs about COVID protocols

If my child is symptomatic at home, what should I do?

People with COVID-19 have a wide range of reported symptoms - from mild

symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure

to the virus.


Parents should self-screen their children every day before coming to school. If your child is exhibiting symptoms, please keep your child home.


Self-screening with the following questions can help assess the risk that an individual has been exposed to COVID-19 and help determine when symptoms are more likely to be from COVID-19.


★ Have you recently begun experiencing any of the following symptoms

in a way that is not normal for you?

○ Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal

to 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit

○ Loss of taste or smell

○ Cough

○ Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath

○ Headache

○ Chills

○ Sore throat

○ Muscle or body aches

○ Diarrhea

○ Fatigue

○ Congestion or runny nose

○ Nausea or vomiting


★ Have you had close contact with an individual who is test-confirmed

with COVID-19?


★ Have you been tested for COVID-19 and are currently awaiting test

results?

If my child is symptomatic at school, what happens?

Students may be sent home for reasons other than COVID. The school nurse will talk with you when you pick up your child and will give you specific information about what is needed to return and may provide you with a letter. IF a negative COVID test is required to return, rapid tests and home tests are not sufficient to rule out COVID and a PCR test would be required.

I have a question about something I read in Tiger Talk.

As informative as our Tiger Talks are, there may be some lingering questions. Select the category your question falls in and be as detailed as you can in your question. Please use the link below.
