Fall is in the air! As a friendly reminder, conferences begin on Monday, November 2nd. Please make sure to sign-up for a conference with your child’s teacher.
Team LGUSD remains committed to making progress towards reopening schools. In order to do this, there are several teachers piloting models so we can learn more about what works and what needs to be modified moving forward. Here is some additional information for you:
What are the considerations for the pilots taking place? Our goal is to ensure that each pilot is replicable, flexible, and expandable. We are also taking into consideration the impact of the pilot on the current virtual classroom while balancing parent choice. Team LGUSD is mindful of parent stakeholders who expressed a strong desire for their child(ren) to remain with their current teacher regardless of being remote or in-person. The pilots will provide us additional information for future planning.
What safety precautions are in place for students and staff participating in an in-person pilot? Participating teachers and staff members are approaching the pilots methodically and strategically. Families will be provided a daily soft copy of a Covid Symptom Check Form prior to each child entering campus. Upon arrival to campus, participating students will have their temperature checked and will proceed to their intended destination. Students will be required to maintain physical distancing on campus and masks will be required.
Why didn’t site Principals announce to the community which classrooms are participating in a pilot? As we all know, the topic of reopening schools is one of the most polarizing topics education has been faced with to date. In order to encourage and foster a sense of support in our community, we are asking for your trust while strategic pilots take place at every school site. As we want these pilots to be successful, we will continue to be as transparent and as timely as possible with our communication in a holistic manner.
Our community is strong and together we will continue to navigate in a cautious and progressive manner to support the transition back to in-person learning.
All parents are cordially invited on October 27 @ 3:00 P.M. to participate in a parent input meeting regarding field and landscaping plans on our campus.
Please consider joining this planning meeting regarding the modernization of our blacktop and field areas. This initial discussion will solicit staff and parent feedback on key planning areas including covered lunch areas, solar, turf and breezeways. Your feedback will be Incorporated into our initial designs and brought back for your review in November. We appreciate your support and look forward to working together to modernize our campus exterior.
