Next LCIS Packet Distribution 4-13-20
Dear LCIS Families,
It was good to see so many of our students and their families on Monday and Tuesday when they came to pick up a Chromebook for at home learning. We hope that all of you have had a chance to access your clever accounts and play around with some of the apps. We are planning to start our Google classrooms next week. Please refer to the information packet that we sent home with the Chromebooks to learn how to access the Google classrooms.
This Monday, April 13, from 8 am – 4 pm we plan to distribute the next two weeks’ worth of paper packets at LCIS for students in K-6. For grades 3-6 the paper packet will match the learning opportunities provided online. Distribution of packets will take place in our new normal way by having staff members bring you the packets while you remain in your car. If your child is engaged with learning online, you will not need to pick up a paper packet, although you may pick it up if you’d like.
For LCIS students who are in need of a device, we would like to offer the use of a Chromebook for the remaining time that we are out of school. You may request a Chromebook during the paper packet pickup time on Monday, April 13, from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. The use of technology for distant learning, like a paper learning packet, is optional and not required. The assignments completed will not be graded. However, by completing assignments and tasks online, your child will have more opportunities to engage with his/her teacher as the teacher will be able to give feedback and support to each student in their learning. These Chromebooks are only available for LCIS students in grades 3-6. Each Chromebook will be released only to the parent or guardian so that they may sign The Chromebook Use Agreement. If you have any problems with your Chromebook, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please reach out to the LCIS staff if you have any questions or concerns. You may leave a voicemail at 719-486-6830, the main office, and we will return your call within 24 hours. Please know that supporting our students is our top priority and that we are happy to work with you as needed. Don t hesitate to reach out.
Stay safe and healthy!
