USD Reopening Plan

Recently, there has been a lot of media coverage around schools reopening. As a result, I've received some questions regarding a date for when USD students will return to in-person learning. As of now, there is no new information to report other than what Superintendent Denise Coleman shared in her September 28th community message (linked below).

On October 12th at 6:00 pm, she will present an update of the district's Reopening Plan to the Board of Trustees and community. If you are interested in viewing the Board meeting click on the following link for more information:

School-Wide Spirit Days

Once per month, we will celebrate our Lietz Pride together, by dressing up with a spirit theme. On these days, I will send out a special announcement, which will include one of our very own Lietz students leading us in our Lietz Upstander Pledge. Each month, a teacher will nominate one of their students, who has been showing their PAWS during distance learning, to take on this leadership role! So don't forget to show your PAWS wherever you go!

Spirit Dates and Themes:

10/30: Dress up for Halloween!

11/20: Fancy Pants Day (Pull out those ties and and faux fur!)

12/18: Hawaiian Day

1/29: Crazy Hair Day

2/26: Sport Your Favorite Sporting Team Day

3/19: Decade Day

4/23: We're Outta This World Day (Think Outer Space!)

Spirit Day photos will be featured in our newsletter and on our website!
