SPECIAL ANOUNCEMENTS
Dear Lycée Community, 
 
It was great to see students back on campus today! Both Patton and Johnson operations were smooth and we saw lots of smiling faces. Thank you, parents and guardians, for assisting us with essential mitigating efforts to keep our community safe. Make sure students come to school with well-fitting masks and a replacement mask, as well as a water bottle. When picking up or dropping off, in person or in carpool, please wear your mask. Our staff is very appreciative of your consideration. 
Thank you, also, for having completed the survey for the return to school during the third trimester. The academic team will reach out once scheduling is complete.

Stay safe,
 
Marina

Lexia Reminder
Now that we have shifted back to virtual learning, here is a reminder about Lexia! Elementary teachers assign Lexia assignments on a weekly basis, it is an independent and research-based program that students should use regularly to boost their reading skills. 
 
Did you know that in grades K-5, LFNO uses Lexia not just to boost foundational and advanced reading skills, but also to guide literacy instruction? 
 
As students complete units, teachers can use the targeted skill builder lessons to intersect with any skills that were not completely mastered in the lessons. It is important that students are practicing regularly and meeting the recommended usage minutes in order to get the most out of this research-proven, and nationally recognized literacy program. 
 
Lexia is proven to close the literacy gap when used with commitment and fidelity! If you are having trouble setting up or logging into your account, please let Ms. Annie Neahring know.
