Flood's Flash

As I am sure you have heard by now, 4th-6th grade students have the opportunity to return full time starting on November 16th. Here is the link to the latest updates. There is quite a bit of information coming your way so if you have questions please don't hesitate to reach out to me and I will try to answer what I can.

Mark your calendar! Next Wednesday, October 28th is our FIRST LATE START WEDNESDAY! Buses will run exactly one hour behind their typical schedule and SVE doors will open at 9:45. SummitRise will be available to families who sign up. See more details about this below.

I can't believe I am already sending this information but here we go!! If we have inclement weather and the district calls for a late start, here is the schedule. If the district cancels school due to inclement weather, we will have what the district is calling an Alternate Method of Instruction day (AMI). On these days students will receive instruction virtually through their Chromebook. The district is allowed five AMI days before we have to start making days up at the end of the year. Be sure your phone numbers are up to date in PowerSchool and that nothing is blocked so you will receive all communications.

A huge thank you to all of our families who have reached out with kind words about teachers, made a donation, or even just waved in the car rider line! Thank you for the support and grace during this ever-changing time.

Best, Mrs. Rachel Flood

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.
