Dear Lycée Community, 

We are looking forward to having you ‘ back ’ on Monday! Hopefully you were able to enjoy some domestic downtime and are ready to get back to learning for the remaining five weeks of school. We understand that each family’s circumstance is different and we appreciate your contribution to the survey so we can better understand your challenges and adjust academic plans from the lens of equity. Please continue to reach out if circumstances are difficult: every family’s challenge is different. The health and safety of our students are on the forefront of our efforts, as they are foundational to their academic success. The resources below from our Lycée mental health professionals may be of assistance.

Thank you for your partnership in education,

The Special Education Advisory Council is excited to announce the development of a community learning series for families of all students. The goal of this learning series is to share information and resources and learn together in a collaborative space to strengthen our collective community. The council invites you to share your interest in attending topical sessions and provide feedback into other learning opportunities you would like to experience by taking this survey by Friday, May 1 .

All Lycée families are invited to participate in this survey.

The first session in this learning series will be on Thursday, April 23 at 2:30 PM via zoom, which will be shared soon. This session will be recorded and uploaded to the ESS section of www.lfno.org/ess/ so it can be accessed at a later date and at your convenience.
Catherine Sample, speech therapist, certified autism specialist, and assistive technology specialist will present on assistive technology terms and solutions. This presentation will discuss tools, implementation, and modeling techniques to support children with communication challenges, challenging behaviors & emotional disturbances.
