Flood's Flash

We are in full preparation mode for many of our students to return to us full time next week! Please remind your child(ren) to bring and properly wear a mask at school, bring a water bottle, and to practice proper handwashing throughout the day!

In order to keep our car rider line moving efficiently with the addition of cars, please try to adhere to the following:

  • Pull all the way forward before stopping your car.
  • If you would like extra time to buckle/unbuckle your child or help them with backpacks, please feel free to pull into one of our parking spaces.
  • Try to gather all items while waiting in line so that your child is ready to exit the car once you pull to a stop.
  • The adults outside are happy to help with masks, backpacks, and coats once the child has exited the car.

As always, please let us know if we can help in any way!

Best, Mrs. Rachel Flood

Roadmap to Reopening

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.
