There are approximately 82,000 students in LCPS. As of 9/14/21, we have had only 7 transmissions throughout the entire county. These low transmission rates have led to a reduced quarantine period from 14 days to 10. Working together, communicating, wearing masks, and avoiding risks are key factors to our success.

Seneca still has ZERO positive cases in the building and the very few quarantines have been due to transmission outside of Seneca. We have 4 students quarantining and one in isolation. We continue to believe that our lunch and recess protocols have been a major contributor to these numbers. Thank you so much to those who have volunteered thus far!
We will be adding a new wrinkle to the Lunch Volunteer Sign-Up. We are hoping to have our parents who sign up on Fridays help manage students at the Bolt Buck Store. 8th grade students run the store during 6th and 7th lunch shifts, so support is supervision only. During 8th grade lunch, we would need you to give out the treats. We'll see how this week works before we decide to add a third volunteer on Fridays.

8th Gr: Eli Pak
7th Gr: Victoria Rincon

Congratulations, Eli, Victoria, and Geovanny! As we get our new flow down, we will be having pictures and Chick-fil-A coming your way this week. Great work demonstrating our CORE values and earning Bolt Bucks!
Speaking of Bolt Bucks, the store is open on Fridays at the bus loop at lunch. I love that 8th grade students are taking OWNERSHIP and running the store for 6th and 7th grade lunches. Check out some picts below.

Clubs and Activities are Back!
- 860 of our students signed up for one or more clubs through advisory a week ago.
- Activity buses departed Seneca at 4:45 on Monday. For a first run, that was pretty good.
- Clubs like anime normally have 10-15 participants. This week, they had 50!
- On the first day of soccer tryouts for the Battle of Route 7, we had 65 students show up!
Check out our CORE Champions in 8th grade beautifying our hallways and stretching prior to soccer tryouts below. Let's keep the good times rolling by continuing to get involved!
