Keep Up the Excellent Work!

Hello Larson Families;

First of all, let me say THANK YOU for your flexibility and understanding as we have been navigating alot of changes this school year.

We made it for 14 weeks with our school open and students in class learning! This is due in large part to our families keeping their kids home when they are sick. We know that keeping your student home is sometimes a difficult situation to manage at the last minute; but the entire staff appreciates your efforts to keep us all safe.

At Home Learning Takes Place November 23, 24 & 25

Classroom information regarding At Home Learning will be sent home today with all students.

Teachers will be reaching out to families on Monday. Students will be expected to participate in at least one Zoom session (30 minutes) per day so teachers can connect, check in and be sure that your child gets all their questions answered.

Chromebooks: Yes, we are deploying Chromebooks to families that have indicated they would need a device. We have a very Limited Supply of Devices and since this At Home Session is only for 3 days, we are only sending one device per family, unless you have a very large family of 3+ students.

Please contact the office if you have questions about the Chromebook deployment.


If your family needs meals on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday for breakfast and lunch, meals can be picked up on our curb from 10:30-12:30 daily. Nutrition Services Staff will be able to assist when you drive up.

Chromebooks Need to be Returned on November 30

If your child has been checked out a Chromebook; please be sure that your child brings it back with them on November 30. Our classrooms share carts and we want to be able to continue providing each class access to a full cart. Chromebooks are used daily.

Coming Soon: Our next Title 1 Event

Craft Night is December 4

We are and excited to share the fun of making Christmas crafts with our Larson Families again this holiday season. This year, we are sending craft kits home with each Larson Eagle. There will be short videos on our Larson webpage, created by the amazing Teacher Elves that will instruct you on how to complete the projects that are inside your Christmas craft bag.

We will also be having a drawing for Turkeys, Hams and Holiday Pies! Every student will be entered into the drawing, we will use our Randomizer App and select the winners. Winners will be announced on Monday, December 7 and the prizes will either be sent home with students OR parents can pick them up.

More information to come as we get closer to the event.

On behalf of the entire staff, I want to wish each and everyone of our Larson Eagle Families a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday.

Even in tough times, I still find a huge array of things that I am grateful for each day. I am thankful for all my families; my Murphy Family, My Larson Staff Family, and our amazing Larson Community Family.

Enjoy your time off next week and I look foward to seeing students again on November 30.

Mrs. Murphy
