Student Directory

As a benefit to joining PTA you will get access to the student directory. This is a great way to contact other parents in your child's class and should not be used for solicitation. This will be available online password protected to PTA members only. If you do NOT want your child's contact information listed you must fill out this form by Wednesday, August 28th. Otherwise you will be in the directory. Thank you!

A few notes on protocols and health guidelines for LSR7

* Staff and students wear masks at all times unless we are taking a mask break while socially distanced.

* Students will hand wash and/or sanitize hands each time they leave and enter a new space. Ex: from classroom to art, from PE to recess, from classroom to lunch, etc. . .

* Classroom desks/tables will be sanitized each time students eat breakfast.

* Students will maintain consistent seating charts in classrooms, at lunch, in special class and students will have assigned line orders. These practices will help us should we need to contact trace.

* The schedule has been build with extra time in between recesses and special class so equipment and materials can be cleaned.
