 Dear Lycée Families,
I’d like to offer a couple of important updates today:
Trimester 3 survey: on this issue of Etre à la Page, you will find a link to a survey to be completed by all families, for each student, indicating the choice of instructional model, virtual or in-person, for the remainder of the school year. The survey offers deadlines and other relevant information. Please complete it as soon as possible and by the deadline in order for our leaders to begin the challenging process of setting up classes with the least amount of changes.
Return to in-person school: as mentioned in past communications, NOLA Public Schools in conjunction with the Children’s Hospital and the Louisiana Department of Health, will re-assess the possibility of a return to in-person learning on January 21st. Latoya Cantrell, our city’s mayor, has declared Phase 1 until January 29th. This will very likely mean that we will be in virtual mode until at least January 29th. Should anything change, we will communicate promptly, however, for the time being, families should plan to be virtual until then.
Staff vaccinations: vaccinations have begun for some of our staff members, Nurses, counselors, and professionals who typically work one-on-one with students who have received their first shot. There is not a firm deadline for teachers and the remaining staff, however, it appears we should be receiving the first dose by the end of February.
We continue to send wishes of strength and health to all of you.
(Jan. 18 - 22 is B-week Schedule)
Survey for Term 3 Educational Plans
DEADLINE - Thurs. Jan. 28
While everyone is in full virtual schooling now, we anticipate being able to return to school in person soon. We need all families to complete this survey to notify us of your selection for term 3 in-person or virtual educational plans. As outlined in the survey, the only structural change from term 2 is increasing the days on campus for 8th-10th graders, however, we know some family circumstances have changed since October, so this is your opportunity to select the educational format that is best for your child for the remainder of the school year. 

Please complete a separate survey for each student you have at the Lycée Johnson Campus by Thursday, January 28th at 8 am. Completion of this survey is your selection of educational plans for your child for term 3.
LFNO Free Meal Kit Delivery - Interest Survey
DEADLINE - Sat. Jan. 23
Lycée and our food service provider, Genuine Foods, are taking steps to offer 5-day meal kits delivered for FREE each week to Lycée students and siblings who sign up. Meals similar to/the same as our normal Resto! meals (not shelf-stable food items) will be prepared by Genuine chefs, packaged in microwave-safe containers, frozen, boxed and delivered on an assigned day. 

Please complete this quick survey by Saturday, January 23 at 11:59 PM, so we can gauge family interest. (Note: by completing this survey you are not signing up, the official sign-up survey will be sent out once State approval has been granted.)

  • Johnson building open from 8 am - 4 pm, Monday-Friday - please come only by appointment or if you’ve been contacted to pick up materials
  • It is still very important for students to attend virtual classes every day and complete their school work. Please reach out to teachers, admin, and support staff if your child is having trouble meeting this expectation so that we can best support your family at this time.

3rd - 5th Grade
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.
