Dear Families, 

The buzz of student voices on campus is such a gift! I am extremely proud of the continued effort put forth by students, staff, and parents to make Reopening LGUSD possible. Below are a few important reminders and notifications:

Travel Quarantine Roomer Agreement
To ensure the safety of all students and staff, Team LGUSD is asking the parents of all Roomers (students who attend in person) to complete this Travel Quarantine Roomer Agreement before returning back to school after the February break. TK-5 Cohort A students should return this form at their entrance gate on Monday, February 22. TK-5 Cohort B students should return this form at their entrance gate on Thursday, Feb. 25. Please note that the Student Symptom Health Checker (email) must also be completed every day a child is on campus. 
COVID Testing
Roomers are strongly encouraged to participate in the next COVID testing dates which will take place at RJ Fisher Middle School next week during break. Orange cones will be in the front of campus with signage. Be sure to register before arrival if it is your child’s first COVID test. After registering once, you do not need to re-register. Here are the upcoming COVID testing dates:
Conference Week March 1-5
Conferences week is on the horizon! Please look for a sign-up sheet from your child’s teacher. You are strongly encouraged to sign-up for this virtual meeting to discuss your child’s successes and areas for growth. There will be no P.M. 2:00-2:30 P.M. connection during this week due to conferences. Specialist classes will continue as usual.

As next week is our February Break, we look forward to resuming school on February 22. Please do your part to abide by the County Travel restrictions, wear a mask, and make good decisions. Together, we can keep our community healthy and our schools open!

In education together, 

All parents are welcome to attend our next Principal Chat where principal Mittleman will discuss the latest Daves Avenue news.

LGUSD Board Meeting

When available, the agenda and instructions for public participation will be HERE.

In order to provide to go lunch options for all students we are changing a few details of our meal program that we wanted to bring to your attention.

1) Grab-n-Go lunches will be available for all students at each campus exit gate from MTTHF 11:45-12:15 (elementary) and M-F 10:45-11:15 (middle school). The tables are marked by menu item and students can grab a breakfast snack/lunch to eat at home. These meals are complementary for all students.  

2) Complementary meals are also available for drive through pick up at Fisher. The hours for drive thru have changed slightly and will be open from 11:30-1:00 daily M-F.

3) Any special dietary needs to contact Lupe Pena directly at lpena@lgusd.org

4) We will publish the menu and meal schedule weekly on Wednesdays so that you may plan ahead.
