November 2021

A Message from Dr. Cassidy

WOW! I cannot believe that it is already November, but here we are. Can you believe that we are already half way through the second nine weeks? We will wrap up the first semester before we leave for the Christmas Break.

While it doesn't seem like a really big deal to most folks, we have begun eating in the cafeteria again! On October 25th, we moved all grade levels to a designated lunch time in the cafeteria instead of their classrooms. This was the first time this happened since March 13, 2019!!! Our 8th grade students were the only students to have been able to do this prior to this date. Students are still seated 3 feet apart, but we have moved a couple of extra tables into the cafeteria and are using the court yard for our larger grade levels as well.

COVID numbers in our area seem to be reducing bother here at LMS and throughout the district. As we see this reduction, we are going to do what we can to have things back to "usual" as much as possible while still maintaining distances and keeping folks safe.

If you ever have a question or a concern, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I'm more than willing to listen and to help in any way that we can. Thank you for all you do!
