Remote Learners/Traditional Learners

Parents, thank you for quickly completing the survey and selecting your child's learning preference. The elementary principals across the district have collaborated to create self-contained remote homerooms. This will allow our teachers to focus their time on their traditional or remote learners without trying to complete both jobs at once. Your child's homeroom teacher may change due to the process of creating/dissolving classes. Ms. Lout or Mrs. Smith will be in touch with you on Monday or Tuesday if your child will be affected.

If you will need to buckle seat belts, car seat clips, change seats, etc., please stay in the line and then park to do so. Parents, do not get out of the car while in the car rider line. Children will enter your car via the rear-passenger door. If this presents a problem, please consider rearrangement of car seats/ booster seats before school starts. Out of concern for student and staff safety, we DO NOT want children walking around the car to enter through the driver's side rear door.


If you come to our school, and there are more than 4 people waiting in our front entry foyer, please wait outside.


**Item Delivery: If you need to drop off an item for your child, we have a table in the front entry foyer. Place their name on a provided sticky note and leave it on the table. We will take care of this for you.

Nurse Notes

Dear Lone Star Families,

Looking forward to our 1st-5th Longhorns returning in a little over a week! 2020-21 school year will be a memorable one for sure! Student can pick out some unique and personalized cloth face coverings. Who knew that fabric masks would be the newest accessory item on back to school check off list? I have seen bedazzled, fav sports team, camo, and superhero face coverings. Please help your child pick out a few favorites and practice wearing them. I suggest 5 different masks for each student so they can be washed after wearing at school all day. We encourage all students to wear them at school. This will decrease risk of exposure and possible 14 day quarantine. Exposure is defined as close contact with secretions(cough or sneeze of infected person) or > 15 minutes cumulative with anyone testing positive for COVID. Staff and students wearing face coverings will play a factor with Montgomery County Health Department recommendations of classroom quarantine or not. Please see www.misd.org Montgomery Moving Forward-COVID Health Response on left of home page for more details.

Please contact me if you need help with obtaining masks or any school supplies for your kids.

Please check out my webpage for more info on face coverings and lots of other info from The American Academy of Pediatrics

also, a fun informative link made by our Aggie friends on handwashing and masks
