News From The Nest

Beak Speak

We look forward to having students back in our building after their Winter holiday. This newsletter has many repeat tidbits for you to review. If your child has been remote since the beginning of the year, or you are a new parent to LaFayette Elementary, please pay special attention to the PikMyKid section for car rider dismissal.

Please note that students meeting face to face will be on campus four days. Mon-Tues (Wed. is remote) and Thurs.-Fri. Please keep up with your child's teachers news from either Seesaw or Google Classroom. We are trying to keep you informed and alerted to new information.

We will be deep cleaning our building on Wednesday and during the day rooms will be disinfected when students are at recess when feasible.

I appreciate all your patience as we continue to navigate life during a Pandemic. We are here to support you and answer any questions you may have at any time. We look forward to greeting your child tomorrow.

Beak Breaks

LaFayette Eagles K-5 will wear a cloth face covering during the day while on campus. Each student had the opportunity to receive 5 cloth face coverings/masks provided by the State of NC. (We still have a supply of masks available) Cloth face coverings must also be worn by teachers, staff, and visitors. Face coverings are also required on buses or other school transportation vehicles, inside school buildings, and on school grounds. (Unless students are participating in vigorous activity.)

Students will have Eagle "Beak" or Mask Breaks throughout the day and during breakfast and lunch. The schedule will be shared by the grade level teacher once the Master Schedule is complete.

A cloth face covering will not be placed on:

- Anyone who has trouble breathing or is unconscious

- Anyone who is incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the face covering without assistance.

-Anyone who cannot tolerate a cloth face covering due to developmental, medical, or behavioral health needs. (Documentation for this accommodation will kept private for each child or adult)
