Dear Parents/Legal Guardians:

As we continue to keep everyone’s safety at the forefront, please do not park in the front of the Church as it is reserved for their staff members. They are allowing us to park in their back

parking lot for your child’s arrival and dismissal. Please help us keep everyone safe and avoid

walking a long distance through the parking lot and park in the back of the Church.

If your child is not feeling well, please be sure to reach out to Mrs. Dannebrock or Mrs. Wager,

the school nurses, to report his/her absences. They may follow up with you regarding specific

symptoms, the duration of an absence and/or the need to have a COVID test and/or quarantine due to possible exposure. They can be reached at (716) 478-4408 or (716) 478-4418.

On Friday, October 15, 2021, the LCSD will complete its annual Early Release Bus Drill. All

schools will dismiss 15 minutes early from school on this day only. This dismissal offers the

school faculty and staff an opportunity to practice specific procedures in the event we would

need to release students early from school.

I understand many staff, parents and students are excited for Halloween. At this point in time,
