What's happening this week?

Students and teachers are working hard to make this school year great. We are halfway through with the 1st 9 weeks. Please be sure to encourage your child to be prepared for class and to try his/her best everyday. If your child or any member of your immediate household is tested for COVID, please keep them home until you get the test results. Your help with this is greatly appreciated. If you have not paid your student's supply fee, please pay it as soon as possible. We still need many laptops to be returned. PLEASE return those to us this week. If you have a new address and/or contact numbers, please call the office so we can be sure to get those updated. Be sure that you join the teacher and bus driver REMIND groups and follow our FB page and our school website. We are doing our part to get info out to you so please help us by sharing information and helping us reach all parents.

Virtual Students

Parents,

We have some Group C, virtual students who are still not completing their work and this was reflected in their interim grades. If your student is not logging into their Google Classroom daily, they will be marked absent and will fall behind on their learning. We want your students back at school if at all possible. It is easier for them to be in class and getting their learning done here. If you are ready for your students to return to school, email Mrs. Thomason and she will see if she can accommodate your request. Virtual facilitators will continue to reach out to assist students. Please understand that teachers are not always able to reply to your messages immediately during the day as they are teaching. They will reply but please be patient. We know this is new and can be challenging but ask that you try to seek out answers and use the resources on www.lpsb.org that have been provided. If you want your student to return to school, contact Mrs. Thomason by email @ misti.thomason@lpsb.org and she will see if the school can accommodate your request.


Be sure to check out the DIGITAL HELP section on the www.lpsb.org website for lots of helpful resources. I've added a link below.

Bus Driver Remind Codes

Please join the REMIND group for your child's bus driver. This is a great way to communicate with your driver. Please remember that they are not allowed to reply during routes and will reply before or after their routes. Text the code for your child's bus to 81010 to join their REMIND group.
