Tip #2: Believe in your ability to improve
This video describes the difference between a growth vs. fixed mindset. Parents, if you want to learn more check out this quick video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1CHPnZfFmU.
Basically, when we have a growth mindset, we see failure as an opportunity for growth. When we have a fixed mindset, we see failure as permanent.
We want to begin by thanking you for your patience as we have been awaiting additional guidance from our local and state health officials regarding COVID-19 and the upcoming school year. We have now received those recommendations and will follow the direction and guidance that has been given.
State health officials strongly recommend that every eligible student (currently people 12 years and older) be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before the school year begins. For families with children too young to be vaccinated, it is particularly important that eligible family members are vaccinated. In addition, masks are highly encouraged for all students and staff while indoors. Please be aware, Leadership Learning Academy does not have authority to initiate a mask mandate. If your child is sick or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, they should not come to school and should be tested for COVID-19. Other practices such as good hygiene and physical distancing is also encouraged.
Leadership Learning Academy will continue to take precautionary measures to maintain a safe school environment. As you are all aware, this remains a dynamic situation.
