Week of April 13th...
LA Staff News
Monday: Staff Zoom--9 AM
Complete the staff survey (or as a parent, if applicable) for LPS if you haven't already: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LPSVLStaff
Referral Process: This will be virtual this semester. As you talk to kids, PLEASE ask them if they are hoping to return to their home high school. Let me know ASAP if this is the case (we usually have 1-3 who consider it).
I expect to see LPS put out some language regarding grading, etc. this week in alignment with what we believe/have been doing.
Let's Talk app: share with parents and students who may have district questions. The link is on the front page of the website.
Make sure we are not asking kids to do anything that would require the purchase of supplies/materials.
Tenured teachers: Please schedule your summative evaluation with me between now and April 24th.
Please continue to check in on students and staff regularly!
