Lenox Elementary

Family Newsletter--April 9, 2021

Greetings Families,

With our return to Hybrid over the past two weeks, it has been a whirlwind of excitement and joy as those students who have come in-person and those who are at home in CDL get to continue their learning and interaction with each other in a new format. Thank you families for your continued support of our instructional model and for respecting and following our new guidance, rules and requirements for Hybrid. Over the past two weeks we have only had to make minor adjustments to a few routines and procedures. It has been a smooth return to the building and we appreciate the role you have played in that. Thank you!

Warmest Regards,

Mrs. Gina McLain
