News from LCHS
While the start of school has been very different and anything but monotonous, you are all continuing to march along beside us. Thank you.
We wanted to make sure you have the chance to catch some of the joys happening in the schools. From giggles to high fives, it’s been great to see our kids back in the building.
We are working hard to implement our health protocols. Handwashing, one way hallways, lunches in classrooms, health screeners, masks, cohorts of students, physical distancing and alternative programming are just a few of the different approaches to our school year that our staff has been working diligently to implement.
As access to the building is limited to mitigate unintended exposure to COVID, we wanted to find a way to allow families a peek into our schools. You will find a video here that has been created to capture some of the back to school moments that have happened.
LCHS 9-12 students: remember to log in to Crew google meet for the entire period every day next week. Crew will be focusing on career and college plans all week.
UPDATE: Meals during Yellow Phase Reopening
All meals are now free for all students regardless of free/reduced lunch status. Please be sure to take advantage of the meals LCSD is able to provide!
Please follow this link for details on distribution depending on your student’s learning choice. If you need any accommodations please do not hesitate to reach out to Julie Mehle email@example.com
719-293-1040 (cell), 719-486-6960 (work).
Even though meals will be free for all students for at least the next few weeks, we encourage all families, including our virtual students, to apply for Free and Reduced School Meals during the first 30 days of school. It is necessary to complete a new application each school year. If your student was eligible for free or reduced meals during the 2019-2020 school year, that eligibility only carries through the first 30 days of school. Children need healthy meals to learn and thrive at school! Lake County School District offers healthy meals every school day and eligible families can receive these meals at no cost. When families apply for school meal benefits they are also helping Lake County School District receive additional funding that goes right back into the classroom!
Applications can be turned in at any school front office Monday-Thursday 8:30 am – 3:30 pm, or mailed to Leslee Torsell, Lake County High School, 1004 W. 4th St., Leadville, CO 80461. If you need an application use this link to download the application as a PDF – https://www.lakecountyschools.net/for-families/nutrition/nutrition-application/ or contact Leslee Torsell, firstname.lastname@example.org, 719-486-6954.
Pandemic EBT Benefits Application portal closes next Wednesday, 9/23 APPLY NOW!
Remember: If your student was enrolled in K-12 in a Colorado School during the 2019-2020 school year, you may be eligible to receive up to $279 per child to help feed your family through Pandemic EBT benefits, in addition to any grab-n-go meals you may be getting from the school district.
This first link will take you directly to the Frequently Asked Questions and application page which can be accessed through September 23rd. To complete this application, you must enter each student’s State Issued Student ID – SASID, which can be found in your registration letter, or contact any school front office for your Lake County student’s SASID number.
