Lindsey Weekly Update

October 2, 2020

Message from Mrs. Bellan:

Hello Lindsey Families,


We have had, yet again, another beautiful week! We are proud of our virtual and in-person students and staff for their hard work, determination, and resilience.


Early next week, I will be sending out a Google Form where you can select a time to meet with your child's homeroom teacher for a conference. These will be held after school on October 29th and also the morning of October 30th. Teachers will be sending out a Zoom link and all conferences will be held virtually.


Lastly, our third graders will be taking the Fall ELA AIR assessment the week of October 19th. More information for both our in-person and virtual students will be forthcoming.


We appreciate everyone's efforts to keep our kids healthy and prepared for learning!


Best,

Meagan

Clinic Notes:

A friendly reminder from the clinic.....


If your child is feeling ill in the morning it is important that you keep them home. Please make sure that you are taking your child's temperature daily in advance of school arrival.


Thank you for helping to keep Lindsey's students and staff healthy!

Given COVID-19, we are trying to make more of our everyday processes electronic and more efficient. These will replace the previous paper form we had.


Please note that there is an option for Lindsey students to ride a bus to Westwood so that parents can pick up all of their elementary-aged students at one location.
